Anything you can do on an art journal page you can do on canvas!

“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
― L.M. Montgomery

I took some shots as I was painting.

So here's the first layer of acrylic paint. I used Golden tubed acrylics.

More paint...

Collage and paint...

I forgot to take the next shot, but I added words in alphabet stamps. The real color is more vivid - these shots were taken indoors with existing indoor light.

Then some doodling with paint.

More collage and paint.

Pulled off the alphabet stickers, more collage, paint and doodles...

Here's what the painting looks like today. Not sure whether to add anything or let it be? I'm letting it sit and looking at it as I walk by each day. Anything you can do with acrylics + collage + neocolors an art journal page you can do on a canvas. Except for stitching it with your sewing machine.

This is another canvas from my stash of Blick Studio Canvas {cotton canvas, pre-primed for acrylic painting}. I would love to do another canvas with this look - before I forget what I did! Do you ever look at your art and wonder what the heck you did?
