Make My Monday week 32

The challenge this week at MMM is to:
CREATE A SCENE
We want to see land scapes, sea scapes, garden and lakes - all containing trees, plants, animals, birds or insects.
can I please draw your attention to the overriding theme this month which is
NATURE

I love the MMM challenges and wanted to try something different. I'm always inspired by the collage projects that Yvonne(Meggysway) creates and so I have used a small canvas this week.




I've never worked on canvas before so that alone was definitely a challenge!!! It's a small canvas and I covered it with a layer of acrylic paint in buttermilk. From then on it was a case of stamping to create a scene and adding DI. I quite like the finished collage but don't think it's up to a challenge standard:) I'm already working on another scene, this time, a card, so I may be back! 
I'm also entering it into the challenge over at Fashionable Stamping where the theme is Butterflies or Bugs.
Thanks for taking the time to visit I love to read your comments:)

This is beautiful and well done for trying a canvas. I discovered the surface is a bit of challenge for stamping because the canvas sort of 'bounces' unless you can find something of the right size to put underneath it when stamping. A scene like this is a good option though because any faint bits can be covered up with another flower or fern LOL!!

Hi Valerie, Congratulations for trying something new, well 2 new things really. You have succeeded. Working on canvas is for me a challenge yet to be successful, I love your scene, the little cat really speaks volumes as he is sitting there. Thanks for sharing your art with Fashionable Stamping (butterflies + bugs) and to Make My Monday- Create a Scene - Nature. Caz
