One of the reasons May Flaum is an effective teacher for me is that she helps me get over the "fear factor" of trying new things. This is the second canvas item I've made during the Field Guide class and it was fun! I'm going to give this to my Mom for her birthday. I used multi medium in the upper left with a stencil, colored the background with distress stains and distress ink, decided the "grass" area needed something, so used a damask stencil there, painted the clouds with acrylic paint. The flowers are Prima (freebies from Two Peas), the butterfly was stamped, colored with inks, and stickled, the bird die cut was from K & Company a year or two ago.
