Big art adventure - Give me a Sign

The challenge on this weeks Awfully Big Art Adventure was to make a sign with a word (I used 2) for you to think about this year. I have chosen the words: Love Life. I for one sometimes get bogged down with life in general and I think that looking at this everyday will make me stop and think just how lucky I really am!

This is the first time I have used a canvas and I have really enjoyed this little project! I painted the 6"x6"canvas with Distress Crackle paint in weathered wood. As it didn't crackle very much I sanded it down a bit to add more interest hehe. The little bird is my stamp of the moment by Dimension Fourth, which I glittered. I also glittered the heart to match. The chippie letters are coloured with a copper marker pen. mmmm....the marker pen was a bit hard and rubbed them up a bit but I quite like that effect!



Thank you for taking a look-see XXX

Terrific Karen. I love the colour of the background & your birdie is so sweet. No wonder he's flavour of the month. I'm sure your canvas will make you smile everytime you see it. :o)
Think we need a master class. xx
