Live the Life You Imagine

So, it's been a little while since I last posted something, but I finally have a project to post for you!
This is a little 6x6 canvas. 
For the background colors, I used Master's Touch Acrylic Paint in the colors Persian Red, and Flesh.
The circles are made from Liquitex Modeling Paste.
Next, I inked the paste and the edges of my canvas with blue ink.
I mod-podged a piece of scrap paper from my stash.
I also doodled the flourish in the right corner.
I highlighted the corners of the canvas with silver ink.
 Next, I stamped a stamp by Tim Holtz on a piece of cream colored card stock, cut around it, and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Tea Dye. Then I adhered it to the canvas.
Now, I added some of my Prima Flowers.
I misted them with a mist a made using FolkArt Metallic in Antique Copper.
And of course, I distressed the flowers, too, with Tea Dye.

 And for the finishing touches! In the middle of the Prima flowers, I added little dots of modeling paste, to give the flowers more texture.

I had lots of fun doing this little canvas, and I hope I inspired you!
Thanks for stopping by!
