"Forever" Mixed Media canvas

Today I have a new canvas to share with you. 
The inspiration for this piece is the song "Forever" by Chris Tomlin. Here is a link for you to listen to the song and see all of the lyrics:
This canvas is 8"x10". The base and flowers are scrapbooking paper from the "Everyday Tango" line by My Minds Eye. The leaves and flower petals were cut with the leaves dies from the Spellbinders Carnation Creations Die set. The birds are die cut using the Perched Reed Bird by Memory Box and  the Bird Sanctuary die by Spellbinders. Acrylic paint is by Liquitex. Stamps, masks, and stencils to numerous to list!
(click on pictures to enlarge)

The paper has been coated with many layers of Mod Podge to increase the strength and flexibility of the dimensional pieces. All sides are finished and here is the finished back:

This canvas is for sale for $35 plus $5 shipping. SOLD!

Hi, I was just cruising thru some of your blog posts when I came across this canvas creation. It just leaped off the screen. First there was the bright colours and the great layout. Love all the multi layered stenciling. And then there was the inspiring way you used your die cuts to create your flowers. Amazing!!
