BElieve in YOUrself

I got that sentiment from Pinterest.  I was going for a simpler background this time and I almost made it.  I just can't resist adding a bit more stamping and well, I got a color on there I didn't like in permanent ink and well, more paint was required...

Anyway, I'm still happy with this one.  The giant flower is hand cut out of 7 different 6x6  papers but stenciled over with the same stencil and a few different paints.  I used a thin layer of chipboard under each petal to hold them up.  The finished canvas is 12" square.

The purple is a mix of paint and modeling paste.  It still amazes me every time I use orange on a project that I used to think I didn't like orange.  One of the many wonderful things about our hobby is you get to do things on paper and canvas you might not put in your wardrobe or home.  It is just so fun to play!

ETA:  Here is a link to the Paper Issues blog.  They are doing a Tiptoe through the Tulips theme with lots of suggestions on how you can play.  Paper Issues Blog
