Upsy Daisy Canvas

Some of you may remember my Always Bird canvas, made with the medium Always Bird from the Decor Elements catalogue.


I still love it, but the medium Always bird retired this past June, so of course that gave me a reason to try a new vinyl art piece! This time, I chose the Old Olive Upsy Daisy image and painted my canvas a vanilla colour before adding streaks of green and purple (and a little silver) paint. After letting the paint dry I put a couple catalogues inside the frame under the canvas so I had something to push against, and rubbed on the flowers. Easy peasy, and I LOVE how it turned out! I did cut apart a few of the flowers so I could layer them a little more. I'd love to see how you've used Decor Elements, either on your walls or to create art!

Wow this is really gorgeous! I love the effect. I have a few painted canvases with decor elements, but mine have all been one solid color for the background. Did you use acrylic paint?
