"A friend.........

is one who knows us, but loves us anyway!"  What a great quote right?  That came from a Stamping Bella stamp set and I used it on my latest mixed media project.

On Sunday, Cindy and Lindsey came over to craft up some canvases.  Thankfully I had a little idea in my head on Saturday night and it pretty much came out the way I wanted! (This is going to be picture heavy!)

This is a 7" x 14" canvas I actually picked up at Walmart.
I started by covering with with pages from a book. Then added three different paint colors.

I stamped out some Hero Arts flowers on patterned paper and then cut them out layering them on each other. I cut out some stems and leaves and and laid those down too.

I used some modeling paste and stencils for some dimension and also some bubble wrap and paint.
I also added some stickers spelling out "friend" and "love". 

I used my Sharpie pen for black edging, various rub-ons and MS beads in the center of the flowers.


Here's Lindsey working on her canvas
