Just a Little Canvas

Another attack of insomnia, and this was the result :) This midlife stuff is pretty bad for the body, but great for my creative juices. Wait until you see last night's creation!
This is a 6 x 6 canvas from Dick Blick. A nice size for a little middle of the night creativity.
I painted the background all kinds of bright summer colors, then painted over the colors with light blue and white. You can still see shades of the other colors underneath. It makes for some nice texture.
 I stamped the bicycle from Unity with gray ink, then painted over it. I did the same with the flowers and the sun. The sentiment is stamped in Black Staz On. 
 The highlights are done using the Sharpie paint marker.
 I don't have any particular plan for this little canvas. For now it just sits on my table and makes me happy ;) 
 Thanks for stopping by :) 
Have a fantastic day!

Yep, love it! Great idea to stamp in gray and paint over it! Wonderful...and I know just what you mean by setting it nearby just to make you happy. I'm kind of sad that my last canvas will be going to AZ tomorrow with the granddaughters. Oh, well, I'll just have to make something else. I have started my journal but haven't had time to do anything but cover the front and glue and gesso some pages.
