Sneak Peek of Quiet Contemplation

Hi hope you have all had a great weekend. I got to do lots of crafty things after my H*******K so I am sharing with you a canvas I made for myself for my bedroom. This gives me the opportunity to share a new release from Delicious Doodles called "Quiet Contemplation". She is due for release Wednesday in the SHOP. I love her so calming and elegant.  I am going to make some miniature ones to accompany her. I dream of a grey and pink bedroom so this will inspire me to design my room.

I opened the image up in my Serif craftartist on a custom page 20cm by 20cm however the lines from the umbrella did not reach across the page so I extended them. I then printed the image out and coloured using just cosmic shimmers paints. I painted the canvas sides and back with an acrylic black paint. I modge podged the image to the canvas. I then added a few twigs I created using a Martha Stewart punch. The blossom on the twigs is the flower in her hair which I cut away from the image digitally and resized.
