Happy March! It's time for a new More Than Words Challenge! This month's challenge is all about:
Word: Bliss
                                                         Creative Challenge: Gesso
Here are some close ups of my canvas:
When I'm painting, life is BLISS! I was inspired to create a "Finnabair" inspired canvas featuring an upcycled paintbrush reflecting my passion along with a metal plate tag reading BLISS as the title. The entire canvas was covered with black gesso as the base coat then white gesso was applied at the end for a highlight:
 




In case you were curious, here is how my canvas looked like before I applied the colorful paints:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the More Than Words Challenge blog to see what the entire design team has created and for complete details on how to join along in the fun!
