Whimsical Tree Canvas

I've shared this everywhere else, but not here yet (: If you haven't caught it at Quick Quotes or Practical Scrappers, enjoy!  Scroll down to the next post to enter my 4OOth post giveaway!

I love clean and simple but striking art to decorate my home.  And who doesn't love creating their own!  I used 4 canvases that measure 8 X 1O to create this quick project.  For the record, I've never touched canvas before...so this was a venture into a whole new media for me!

 Each canvas uses a Whimsical Tree from Quick Quotes.  As soon as I saw these I knew I wanted to create something just like this!  I used four different colors of Powder Puff Chalking Inks: Maraschino Cherry, Amaretto, Green with Envy, and Lemonade.  For each tree I did three layers of chalking, allowing them to dry for just a couple minutes in between.  One layer would have created a more subtle color and I really wanted these to be bold.  I glued them down with Beacons 3 in 1 glue.  When all was said and done this whole project only took me about 3O minutes and that includes hanging time!
