Always Be Grateful

Good morning and Happy Monday fellow paint lovers!  Emily here today with a canvas I created using lots of beautiful Creative Inspirations Paints. 

Recently, I have been inspired by all of the fall leaves and colors I am surrounded by on a daily basis when I walk to work. Thanksgiving is also coming up very soon, so many have been posting and sharing what they are grateful for this month. The two inspirations combined equal today's canvas.

Nine different paints were used from CIP in this canvas. Not only did I use the paints on the flowers, but I also used them on the canvas, the glass beads gel and a small amount on the wooden letters. 

As you can see, the message of the canvas is clear. It is a nice fit for this time of year. I currently have this piece hanging in the hallway surrounded by family photos. It reminds us to be grateful for who and what we have. :) 

You can see the shimmer of the paints in these various close up shots. When you look at the canvas from different angles you can see the different colors I used. 

Below are the Creative Inspirations Paints used in my canvas today. 

Other supplies used: canvas, Bo Bunny Khaki Dot cardstock, Prima Flowers, Wood Veneer Alpha (Studio Calico) Liquitex Glass Beads Gel, Acrylic paint , Distress Ink, Prima Stamps, Tim Holtz Stamps, StazOn Ink, 

Thank you for stopping by today! Remember to join Jessica for our Weekly Inspired By Challenge! This weeks is Inspired by: Turkey Turkey!! So let us see those Thanksgiving or Turkey inspired projects!!
