2 piece Inspirational Canvas for SaCrafters

Hello everyone, how's your weekend?

I went for a late night movie...Kingsman. It was a great movie. I love Colin Firth! Caught him in Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jones Diary and still love his movies after all these years :)

Well the reason I'm back today is not to discuss about Colin Firth; I'm here to share a 2-piece inspirational canvas (7" x 9") which will double up as a great decor piece. So here it is!

As usual, I do not use traditional paint brush. I find that I paint better with my fingers and sponges. So this background is created with a facial sponge. Don't believe me? Scroll down and catch my video :)

I really enjoy the whole process of creating this striking background inspired by the great mother nature......sunset is the theme. Do you? 

Oh I nearly forgot, the quotes are printed on a cardstock and layer of matte medium has been applied to ensure that the ink will last.

Well, my boy loves it and said that we should keep this and not give to anyone. But I'm thinking of doing some good deed with these 2 canvases. Sell them off and donate the proceeds to an appointed animal rescue centre. Good idea right?
