My Debut Project for Linnie Blooms

Today is the day I share with you Linnie Blooms and my first project for the Design Team.

First, are you familiar with Linnie Blooms?  It is a retail store that offers a wide variety of craft and art supplies. Also, you will find fun, creative classes that include mixed-media, monthly Pinterest classes, kid's sewing classes, crochet, and more.  The store also features artwork and creations from different artists.  I provided several links to Linnie Blooms at the end of this post.

For my first project, I went very simple - to get a feel for the canvas pieces sent to use.





I started with the canvas sunflower and canvas leaves.  Each piece I gave a light coat of gesso.  After the gesso dried, I applied color by using Viva Inka-Gold Metallic Rubs in gold, violet, and steel blue. Outlining was done with a gold color.  How simple and easy it was to work with these canvas pieces and how beautifully they took on the color.

Be sure to check out all the links below for Linnie Blooms.


Thanks for stopping!
