"Choose Kindness" Pastel 9x12 Canvas

Good morning ladies.  Today is the reveal of my 9x12 canvas that I have created.  I call it "Choose Kindness" which is the beautiful quote block cut from the Rose Quartz paper collection from Prima.  This is gorgeous paper.  I took one of the papers and cut out all the flower bunches.  It was a bit time-consuming but I do enjoy doing that type of thing.  I actually do that to some of my very old papers.  I cut out all the flowers and place them in a plastic bag and keep them with all my other ephemera.  I have been able to use a lot of the cut items on several layouts, etc.
The canvas.

To start (unfortunately my picture did not turn out) I put together a paper collage to fit behind the quote block.  I used pop dots for each paper so that I could tuck things under the edges of each of the three layers.  You can see the papers coming out from each side of the block.   I laid the collage down on the canvas and lightly marked where I wanted it to be placed.  This was for the application of the crackle paste and the sprays.  Not much sense in applying these items if they won't be showing because they are under the paper collage. I set this aside.
For the canvas surface, I applied a generous amount of white gesso over the entire surface.  After drying completely, I applied Golden crackle paste mainly around the outside edges and up to my marks for my paper collage.  It is important to let this paste dry on its own to get maximum cracks.  This could take a couple of hours. I then sprayed with a pretty pink spray from Shimmerz called Pop Art Pink.  Here is a close-up to show the cracks.

I then added my quote block using pop dots to the centre of the collage and added the collage to the canvas, not quite centred, more to the left side.  I did use pop dots to raise the entire piece.
I began tucking and adding all the flower bunches I cut out making sure that they were coming out from the layers of the paper collage.  And then the rest of my embellishments - pink and white flowers, flowers from the Rose Quartz collection,  a cut piece of an old doilie (at the left outside edge of the collage and at the top left corner), die cut white vines, chipboard flourishes and diamond shaped chipboard pieces painted with black paint and then art stones.  I also added a section at the bottom right corner of the canvas using a white resin decorative frame.  Here are a few close-ups of sections of the canvas.

And there you have it.  I was hesitant at first with the black accents, but I am glad I used them as they really pop the whole design.
I hope you have enjoyed my latest creation.  Until next time this is Donna wishing you a safe, prosperous, happy, delightful, creative and memory-filled week.

Python already replaced C and C++ in contexts where performance, detailed resource management and being able to interface with hardware devices aren't that important: in a way, every pure Python program out there is a program that was not written in C or C++, because it made more sense to write it in Python.keep connect with will help u lot guys..
