This is my cheater canvas. It was half done but I took this as an opportunity to finish it. This summer my niece came to visit and I was sharing this method of SheART I learned from Christy Thomlinson - great workshop. Anyway, so my niece (Hi Erin!) chose the patterns, cut the pieces and glued them down. She also did the blue sky, green grass. I just took a lot of pleasure in doing the finishing touches with embossing the sun, adding some dimensional elements, some stamping, inking and doodling, etc. So yes I feel I did enough detail work to consider this one of my out of the journal canvases. It got me caught up and so inspired because I embossed (something i rarely do despite owning over a dozen bottles of embossing powders!) that i quickly set to applying gesso to my two canvases this week and already have the backgrounds on both! I love how the more you do, the more you want to do.
