Original Canvas :)

When I get stressed I go to my craft room. Yesterday was one of those days :/ I was in a really bad mood. I don't know how I created something so bright and cheerful while I was in such a yucky mood, but I did :)
I really enjoyed making this. It's an 11x14 canvas so I was a little nervous.
The papers I used are My Mind's Eye - Bloom & Grow and Fine & Dandy, and Cosmo Cricket - Material Girl.  
The background was done using Faber Castell Gelatos over tissue paper for texture. I used various acrylic paints over the papers. Everything was outlined with a Pilot Permaball pen, and highlighted with a Sharpie Poster Paint Pen in white. A little shading on the stems and leaves were done with a Copic marker. I almost forgot, I used the Unity Worn Grid and Distressed Dots Backgrounds for added texture. And of course, Mod Podge over everything :)
Thank you for looking :) I really enjoyed creating this, and couldn't wait to share it with you!
Have an awesome day!!!
