My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to March's My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop
The challenge this month was to make something using Spring colors (It was our decision on what Spring is to us).  And so I gave it some thought.  As most of you know, I'm not a pastel lover.  But I wanted to be true to the theme and try something I'd never done before.

 When I think of Spring, beautiful blooming flowers come to mind.  So, what I decided to do is take inspiration from my favorite kind of  flower - gerber daisies. I created this altered canvas with some muted spring colors like blues, a cheery yellow, and greens...but a little red thrown in for that vibrancy that I love about gerbers. :-)

According to my hubby, I'm usually my own worse critic.  But the truth is, I really love this.  I've had it on my table for several days now and each time I go by, it brings a smile to my face.  Would it be awful of me to change the title and keep it for myself? LOL  Robyn's "Plant seeds of kindess" sentiment (also from the "Everyday Life" set ) would work well too.

.Anyway, here it is.  I hope you like it! :-)

I painted the entire canvas a buttery yellow and created from there...

(Click on any image to enlarge)

And a close up of the cute sentiment.  I used the "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you."  It's from the My Pink Stamper "Everyday Life" set and can be found at any of these retailers.

Lots and lots of pop dots were used to add dimension...



And finally, how it looks hanging on the wall (albeit a bit crooked) LOL...
