Welcome Canvas

A little Canvas I have had sitting around for awhile in need of some play time.

Not so sure what I was going to do with it , had an idea here or there.
Settling on my original intent, to make a simple welcome greeting for my kitchen and the season.

With some inspiration from "Create & Decorate" April 2009 Magazine's Pattern Insert.
I used some images that I thought would work well for my project.

Springtime Stationary/ April Showers note card
flower images by Kim Klassen.

Used for the center flowers on my canvas, adding in my own bumble bees to give it a personal touch.

Also inspired by " Backyard Chicks"punch needle image by Whimsey Street Designs for my bird.
Even though the images where meant for an entirely different type of project than mine.
They just seemed to be the inspiration I needed to get started on this canvas.

I like the look of Primitive & Folk Art ,but have never really gave it a try until lately.
I find it to be fun and lighthearted and it also makes a blank canvas look less intimidating,
especially when paints are not my strongest area.
Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by : )
