Petaloo: 8x10 Valentine's Day Canvas

Hi there, we are getting closer to Valentine's Day, so I have a Valentine's day themed canvas created with Simple Stories Homespun Collection and Petaloo's flowers.  Here is my 8x10 canvas.

I chose my patterned papers first and adhered it to the canvas using Gesso.  Than I added the pretty black label and outlined it with Petaloo's Crochet Lace in red.

Than I started adding my pretty Botanica and Texured flowers along with leaves, as they just popped so nice even with the flower patterned paper background.

And I added the pretty banner from the Cardstock Sticker sheet.  It was perfect and I topped it with little Pennylane flowers.

As a final touch I added some more gesso and especially to the black label to create a chalkboard look.  I also added some black and brown Pan Pastel to add more contrast to my canvas and gesso to my flowers and leaves.

Hope you like this canvas project and might inspire you to create something like this.
