Mixed Media Canvas Documented Everyday - Handmade Flowers

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to challenge you to make some project element from scratch. It could be an embellishment with layers, a rosette, a flower, or perhaps you build something or otherwise craft a piece by starting with little more than simple paper or other raw materials. What will you make from scratch?

I was inspired to make handmade flowers to decorate a mixed media canvas with a photo of Natalie on it.

 
It's always great to use up the scraps so this week, I gathered my leftover scraps with various colors and patterns to die cut and make these handmade flowers.

 


The background of this canvas was covered with Gesso and colored with Izink inks and watercolors.


The Tim Holtz Alpha Parts and Prima Flowers Free Spirit Wood Icons were attached to create the dimension on this canvas.





Hope these handmade flowers and the canvas inspired you to create something from scratch.



Supply List: 
Can you create anything from the raw material on your project? Join us for this week's challenge at  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge since Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 gift voucher. Have fun!
I can't wait to see what you will create. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a wonderful week.
