Bird Song Canvas

Happy Friday! I can’t believe I have posted almost every day this week. I love it! We got a lot of snow here in New York, more than predicted. I had a lot of fun playing with my boys in the snow today.  Now that the sun is out I am guessing our snowman and snow angels will be melted soon.
So, onto the canvas. I covered the canvas using the gorgeous Bird Song paper by Graphic 45. I love anything Asian themed so playing with this paper made me smile. I then painted, sprayed stamped, embossed and did anything else I could do to hide the original background. Not that I don’t like the paper… I am just liking it better MY way.
Well, then I started layering the fussy cut lanterns and popping some of them up. I layered embellies around the photo as a frame and added stuff here, there and everywhere. I am still deciding as to whether it is cluttered or busy. Aren’t my two littles cute? And just because I can, here are two pics I took today of them playing in the snow.
Thank you to all of you who have left sweet comments as of late. I am working my way around to your blogs. I am sure you understand…these two little guys keep me very busy. Have a great weekend.

  • Kate…your canvas is awe inspiring! I soooo love your blended background. Those Graphic 45 papers are lovely and you have certainly capitalized on their beautiful colors and graphics to create such a lovely piece. I love your design and the depth of your canvas. That torn away section with the beautiful dimensional rose emerging is so lovely. I love the butterflies and the geisha girl holding the lantern, directing your eye to your adorable photograph of your children. So so pretty! The pictures of your kids playing in the snow are also so darned cute! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
