I {heart} Linnie Blooms

Happy Thursday!!
Today is my first Design Team post for Linnie Blooms … yay me!
I was so excited with all of my Linnie Blooms treasures when they arrived I went a little canvas crazy!
I started out with the 9" X 11" canvas blank and an idea for a Love theme wall hanging.
I used spray color shine paint in peach, acrylics in greens, browns and white along with lots of metal embellishments and ribbons to create this keepsake.  
I painted and/or stamped on each Canvas Heart piece.
At the top of this piece I used metal eyelets to create a sturdy place to thread the ribbons for attaching a dowel and chain so that this piece can hang nicely for wall display.
On to project number two…
another Canvas Heart project.
I created this Valentine and used Gelatos for my first time to shade the canvas piece.
How FUN were they?? LOTS!  
I simply sectioned the piece, shaded it and added stickles for some shimmer in the center. 
There's a piece 3D adhesive to pop up the heart so it has plenty of dimension. 
Ok so..I just wanted to make oooonnnneeee more project.
I wanted to use the canvas owl, but somehow that owl …. 
with some orange acrylic paint turned onto her side and became a FISH.
 A feathery gold fish with shimmery gills and a pearly eye!
She will make a great valentine for someone special this year.  
I'm pretty tickled with how this sweet little CAS card turned out.  

Thank you for letting me go a little photo crazy in this post and for the opportunity to share my fun, canvas filled projects with you today.
