Seasons Change - a Brave canvas for me....

I've had this idea in my head for a while - a large canvas of a tree with all four seasons.  This canvas is pretty big - not huge my any means, but it's 18x24, so much larger than what I'm use to working with.  I started with the background, creating quadrants to represent Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.  Then I added texture with a napkin.  The tree is a hot glue then painted!  The leaves are paper - using both a Martha Stewart punch and a Sizzix die (Prima).  The fall leaves are from Prima's Sunrise Sunset collection, and the green leaves are Authentique's Peaceful collection.  The cherry blossoms are from my stash - probably dollar store, can't remember.  The snow is modeling paste from Liquitex and glitter (although you can't see it in the photo).

I love how it turned out - one of the few times where what was in my head actually came out on my page/canvas.  I showed my husband and he said to me that he wants to hang it on the wall in the living room ... I near cried - he likes it that much, as much as I do!

So, let me know what you think - this is me being brave - doing a BIG canvas!

Leave a comment - they make my day!!
