Creating a canvas of this size-- I had the wrong measurements on my previous post, the canvas is actually 24x11-- is no easy task, as some planning has to happen. What is the story? What do I want to convey? I knew I wanted an affirmation that meant something to me and would motivate me when I saw it everyday to make something beautiful. As artists we are the first to snub our own art and convince ourselves we could have done so much better. In all honesty, now that it's done I am pleased how it turned out, but in the back of mind there is the little annoying voice telling me...maybe add this or perhaps you should have used another color. All done now! No going back! The kids like it. My husband liked it, even though he critiqued me half way through, questioning my thought process as to why there was blue in the sun. Blue in the sun? It's mix media...I could put a rabbit in the sun and it would be okay. :) LOL
Some Odd Girl product. The star of the show is Sway Mae. I bought a couple of cut files to create some of the background and layers of textures. The cut files I used are Mantra Sentiments and Circle Card Background. (I used the arrows--see picture below.) I also used clear stamp Sunny Mae for rays on the sunshine and Hey Kaylee for the grass.
