A friendly canvas remix

Its such a happy moment when we make something and gift it to our friends or family .. right ? M sure you just said an 'yes'.. My close friend moved into a new home recenlty and I wanted to make something for her room.. Wanted to make something with a touch of "Funkiness" !! So here is what I made...

A funky mixed media art!! Got started with the canvas paints and a sepia print out of her photo.(She'z got a brilliant smile, I love that!!). Its always been a well defined and regular stuff that I painted. But not this time:)

I was inspired by Alisa Burkes Canvas remix(Click here to buy from amazon).
The projects in the book are all messy creations of vibrant colors and canvas ! Well the first look at the projects in the book did not quite impress me because it all looked too messy for me! But as I made my first canvas I thoroughly enjoyed the process of getting messy with paints and canvas. Its fun to do such work also.

Her rooms are going to be painted red and white . So I chose a red and white theme. Covered the canvas with red and little white here and there.. Made some stencils with paper. and Finally it was done!

No pics yet of it hanging on the red wall. But here are some pics of the finished art.
I simply love Alisa's book now. She is an amazing artist !

Liked it ? Have you made something like this before ? Very messy art na :) I loved it and my buddy adored it. I am inspired to do more and more like this , different projects of course so stay tuned for more...


P.S : I have linked up my project to all/some of the links here.
