Photo Inspiration - Spring

Challenge 107
Photo Inspiration - Spring

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

My final canvas for a while (need to buy some more hahaha), it has been a super fun journey creating the canvas creations so will have to do some more.

This forthnights challenge at IKEsWORLD is Photo Inspiration - Spring and I have used one of my all time favourite digi's - Spring Fairy, she is so full of movement and beautifully proportioned I keep coming back to her.

I used a 20cm x 20cm canvas for this creation.  The background was created digitally using a photo, the Spring Fairy image and the sentiment and printed.  I then used Pan Pastels to soften the background image some more and coloured the image with Polychromes.  With the colouring done I trimmed and stuck the paper to the canvas using a permanent adhesive spray.  I tried using SN glitter pens for the leaves but did not like how that turned out so went over them with my go to Stickles.  For the flowers I used a very small flower die to create all 50+ of them hahah, each was then finished with some purple Stickles and a tiny orange seed bead.  My grandson, who is 8, rather liked this canvas so I offered it to him, his reply was ' it is a bit girly for my bedroom' hahahaha so I get to keep it myself :)
