Live Laugh Love Canvas

I really enjoy working with canvases.  Seems to be more of them lately then layouts, but I love the artistic approach I take when creating art using a canvas.  I've been working on this one over the past week and a half, a little at a time and finally finished it last night.  I was drawn to a couple of challenge blogs this month and really wanted to create!
This month at Berry71bleu Mandy is hosting a Mixed Media Challenge:
and Christin is hosting the February challenge at Scrap Around the World.
I love Christin's mood board! I was particularly drawn to the icing on the cake and created some layering with papers and lace on my canvas.  I was also drawn to the subtle touches of gold in the mood board along with the vibrant pops of fuchsia.

A few close ups:




I incorporated a lot of mixed media into my canvas including some modeling paste, gesso, mists, inks and paints.

I hope I have inspired you and as always thanks for stopping by!
