Joshua 24:15 canvas

Here is a 6"x6" canvas with an adorable little house, pretty canvas bird, and glass bead sun.
This is week 2 of Dina Wakely's Out of the Journal challenge so I am linking up with her. Pop over and see what she and other artists have created by being challenged to get their work out of the art journal and on to a canvas! Speaking of canvas, the challenge this week at Frilly and Funkie is to use canvas on your project. In addition to being on canvas, my project contains a little red bird that is a Prima rub-on which I applied to a piece of canvas and cut out, then applied to the main piece. The canvas gives it a really nice texture.
 The sun is made with the Mini Mum stencil by Crafter's Workshop using Golden Glass Bead Gel mixed with Liquitex acrylic in Bright Gold and Prima bling in the center. 

The background is Faber Castell Gelatos from the Blue/Green Mix and Match collection applied directly to the canvas, then sprayed with water and blended by rotating the canvas to move the color around.
The papers used to make the house are by Echo Park from the "For the Record" collection. Lots of stamps, rub-ons, and inks by various manufacturers at every stage and a favorite Bible verse finish it off.
Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments!

Congrats on winning at F&F!!! Your canvas is beautiful! I love all of the special touches you added to it and best of all the verse you chose. I'm going to be making my first mixed media canvas soon and have a house planned, but couldn't decide on a quote. I just found the perfect one. :) Thanks for the inspiration.
