Make your own sunshine!
I began with blue chalk paint on a 16x20 canvas. Next 3 different colors of blue ink were layered with my favorite flourish stamp.
Wooden & chipboard circles were covered with wash tape.
The most fun part of this project was creating the sun with the glitter, washi tape and lacquer circles:) I laid them out, took a picture, and then was able to put the sun back together fairly close to the preview, glueing each piece as it was placed. Again I would use a glue gun instead of tacky adhesive for an instant bond.
Pinterest was searched for a sunshine quote that spoke to my heart...this was the winner! Thanks to my circuit design space I was able to cut all of these words at once. Lay the words out before adhering...always a good idea! The letters and words were run through my Xyron adhesive machine, adhered to the canvas and then covered with artist matte medium, which is better than mod-podge.
