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.
