Do What Makes You Happy Mixed Media Canvas

As we usher in another New Year, my wish for all: 

May you have everlasting happiness, and peace.
May your home be blessed with an abundance of warmth and joy.
May all your wonderful dreams become real.
May you experience success in whatever you do.

I created this canvas for my hubby back in October for our anniversary. He has always said to me and the kids "I would rather have something homemade than anything bought". So homemade is what he received!

This was my first attempt at mixed media. It was fun to just be sorta messy for a change!

Mister Huey's Color Mists ~ Classic Tan & Sunshine

  1. I really like this canvas, Cindy! "Do what makes you happy" is the motto of my life! I love the close up photos best - they really show off all the textures in their full glory!
