"So Happy To Have You" Canvas Art

Happy (rainy) Sunday everyone!  Today I am going to share with you a layout that I made using a piece of artist canvas.  This was my first time creating a layout with canvas and not a piece of cardstock as my background.  I must say, it was a lot of fun!  I also like that I get to enjoy seeing it on display in my house rather than just having it stored away in an album.  Who knows I might just have to create a few more pieces of work for my house. 

Here is a close up of one of the flowers I created by using ribbon and twisting it around in a circle to create the look of a flower.

Here is another close up of the ribbon flowers I created as well as the hand stitched I did on the canvas. 

 And last but not least, here is a picture of the completed project on display on a shelf on my living room wall.
