Hold Hands Tightly and Hearts Gently

Here's a simple 8x8 canvas I made.  This was my first time using a burlap canvas.  I love the deep texture of the fabric, although it was a little bit different than painting on a traditional canvas.

The background was made with acrylic paint and then a little stamping to add texture. I bought a bubble wrap stamp to use with my altered art projects, but I like stamping with real bubble wrap better.  Too funny!

 I didn't use many rub-ons on this project...just doodling and some stamping.

 I used white Liquitex acrylic ink over book paper for the roof because I wanted it to be transparent so the words would show through.

 This is one of my favorite quotes!  I'm sure I'll use it on more projects.  :)

 To make the cloud, I used the negative portion of a die cut and swirled light modeling paste over it like a stencil.  I love how fluffy it looks!

Now it's off to live at a friend's house.  Hope she likes it!
