“Let Go, Surrender, Have Faith” Canvas by DT Mistra Hoolahan

Hi lovelies!  Today I have a canvas I created to share with you… a sweet friend of mine asked me to help her create her first mixed media canvas and it got me off and running again.  Id’ forgotten just how much I really loved getting messy, realised I’ve missed it!

The fabulous Dusty Attic Corner Flourish #5 from the April release fitted beautifully over the corners, then I have added sweet Flutterbies #3, Birdcage #5 and mini Birds #3 and created a title using the mini ABC Set Lower.

The chipboard pieces were spray painted white and then the flourishes and alphas misted with River Mossy and Tea Party Smooch Spritz and Apricot Nectar, Peacock and Mint Chocolate Chip Chalkboard Mists. 

 The sweet butterflies and cages were touched with some old silver metallic rub and the birds were touched with some Patina and Honey Mix’d Media Inx.

The canvas background with stencilled first with texture paste before the colour was added to add some slight texture.

The flowers were also touched with some colour mists to blend them in with the canvas background.

Thanks for popping by today!  I hope you like this canvas, it was fun to just let go and play and let the work create itself!
