Getting ready for two huge craft shows! More mixed media canvases

Hi Peeps  :)
I hope your not getting bored looking at all of my canvases! LOL!  Eventually I will be doing other things but this is craft show season and I'm still getting ready for more shows.  With that said, here are some more canvases that I've worked on lately.  My favorites are the first two and the last one.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

I love the colors on this one!  I died all the paper flowers with my Dylusions sprays and the big orange flower I made with material.  Here is the link to the video for the Rosette flower tutorial. 

I used the same flower tutorial for the roses on this canvas.

Hope you enjoyed my canvases.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Thank you!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!!!!

Flowers, flowers and more flowers! Canvas art.

Hello Everyone  :)
I hope this post finds you well and happy!  I'm getting ready for my first huge craft show in October.  For my followers who live in Maryland I will be at the Darlington Apple Festival!  I am sooooo excited!  If you get a chance go to the link I just posted and check it out!  I am so nervous too LOL!  I will be selling my mixed media canvases.  I just bought a TON of canvases and just looking at them I feel overwhelmed.  I do have one show I'm doing in August but from what I understand it is really big as well.  It is in Severna Park, Maryland and it's the Ravens Roost 128 2nd Annual Season Kickoff Craft Fair

So for now I'm in my craft room creating away (oh poor me LOL)!
Without further ado here are 3 more that I've done!

This one is a 12 x 24.  This is my 3rd attempt at doing an abstract the first 2 were epic fails!  I love how this one turned out and I'm kind of sad to sell it as I would love to hang it on my wall!  All well I can always make another one.

This one is a 16 x 20 and I want to keep this one as well LOL!  I drew the vase than covered it with different pieces of paper.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  The red/orange clocks, writing and doily on the canvas are dimensional to add some texture.  I think I may make another one because I have some yellow flowers.  Tell me what you think, please.

This one is an 8 x 10.  I had no idea where I was going on this one I just started putting it together and I'm very pleased with the way it turned out!

Well that is it for me today :)  Be sure to check out the links to my upcoming shows and if you live in the area please come out and see me!

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge #8 Anything Goes

Hi All :)
This month's challenge is anything goes at Crafts Galore Encore and this month's sponsor is,
Dis Digi Stamps!  She is offering $12 to spend in her store for the winner of August!
For my Design Team project I went with another one of my canvases.  I had so much fun making this one as I've never made a steam punk canvas before.

I used old book paper for the background some paint, stamps, Glimmer mist and some gelatos.  The clock, gears and bust stand (can't think of the name of it lol) are all Tim Holtz dies.  I used cloth for the dress and some pearls from my stash for the necklace.  The sentiment is also a Tim Holtz stamp which I stamped on old book paper then distressed it with Black Soot and Vintage Photo distress pads.  To get the rusty look on the chipboard gears and clocks I used Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade distress pads.
Well head on over to Crafts Galore Encore and take the challenge!  You could win the awesome prize from Dis Digis Stamps!

Make it a WONDERFUL DAY!!!
