Do More of What Makes You Happy - USTREAM

Okay -- I loved creating this canvas inspired by the lovely and talented Stephanie Ackerman  who very graciously joined us on USTREAM tonight!  Thank you, Stephanie.  So glad you could join us!!
So here's the story - I saw a canvas that Stephanie posted on facebook that truely inspired me, so I commented and asked her if I could create my own version of it on my USTREAM broadcast tonight.  She said yes and voila...  this is what I created!  A canvas within a canvas.....

I wrote a quote out on watercolour paper and then used my watercolours to "rainbow" colour it.  Painted a 12x24 canvas with a couple of little textural elements in gesso and molding paste and then cut up and adhered the watercolour painting.  Add some PanPastel shading and there you have it!  A canvas that does make me happy!

My internet did cut out on me tonight so there are two vids here.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!!

Have a creative day!
