For The Birds Canvases with Mary B

Hello, Mary here today with a simple set of canvases rockin' an awesome pop of color!

With Gina's chipboard shapes, it only took a bit of glue, some white paint and a wash of color to create two canvases ready to jazz up your home decor or make the day of a friend or family member.

I began by gluing down one of the pieces from the Birds On A Wire 2 set and the largest feather in the Feathers Shape Set with a small amount of tacky glue.  A quick coat of white acrylic paint and a little Mod Podge to seal it in and it's ready for color!

I've outlined the pieces with a water-soluble graphite pencil to make them stand out more.

I finished my canvases off with a few white circles drawn on with a white PITT pen...

...and a sprinkling of glass microbeads for a little sparkle!

And that's the project.  They were so simple to create, and add such a lovely touch of color.

Thanks so much for joining me today and I'll see you next time!
