Flower Trio Canvas

I've really been loving doing more mixed media paintings in the studio lately. I've got lots of things I want to try yet and have been exploring lots of fabulous art blogs for inspiration. But this piece is just a simple canvas I did and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I just knew I was going to create a deep red background and distress the edges with some robin's egg blue, because I've been loving that color combo lately. :) Finally I was inspired by some fabric flowers in my studio, and this Flower Trio Canvas was the result.

Flower Trio Mixed Media

The flowers are robin's egg blue (even though the color isn't as pretty in this photo as it is in real life) and are attached to the canvas with antiqued copper brads. Then I took some rusty wire to create stems, and added just a bit of blue paint on the wire too so they'd pop out more. This is a 5" canvas, just something cute to hang on the wall somewhere.
