HEART OF THE HOME - Small Mixed Media Canvas
(Mixed Media & Art May Challenge)

I went mixed media today while I had a day off work,
and I created this small and simple canvas inspired
by the Mixed Media & Art May challenge:

The Mixed Media & Art challenge offers Architecture as the theme
and proposes a small format project.  Click HERE to learn 
all the details and see gorgeous inspiration from their DT.

My canvas is definitely of a smaller format... 2.5" wide x 8" tall.

After priming it with white gesso, I hadn't some texture to it
by using a brick stencil and molding paste.  I then added colour,
reddish brown, grey and black for the brick part on the left 
and a combination of teal, turquoise, blue and white on the right.

Because I wanted to keep it simple, I opted to add
a plain house chipboard shape coloured with Distress Stain.
I then added a heart which I embossed with polka dots
and I painted a very light shade of blue.

I placed a swirly 'smoke' of flowers coming out
of the house chimney and sprinkled some microbeads.

And there you have it... a very simple home decor!

Thank you to Mixed Media & Art for the inspiration!!
