So, I have entered in an Altered Canvas Swap. The theme is Vintage Spring. In the canvas has to be the quote, "April showers, bring May flowers." The process was grueling and I have to admit I had serious artist block half the time.
Hand painted each and every flower. Dyed the feathers with food coloring, all that trouble just for them to look like grass. Painted doilies to make them look like clouds. Used paper bag for dirt and embroidered some roots on it. Sequins as raindrops.
