Mid Century Modern Canvas

  A group I belong to on FB, #Relics&Artifacts Tribe offered up a challenge using Sandra Evertson's Relics&Artifacts in the Mid Century Modern design.
  Having been born,somewhere around this time,and just Adoring this style,naturally I jumped right in to this challenge.
 Our home is decorated with art and furniture from this era,so I had lots of inspiration to pull from!

 After deciding which #Relics to use,I figured my favorite Mid Century color palette and roughly sketched my design in my journal
I said it was rough! LOL
 Next,using all DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics I painted in my spaces.
Then I found the BEST chipboard pieces from GypsySoul Laser Cuts in my stash to use. 
Look,they fit perfectly!
 So very MOD!

The eye pieces and face were were painted in both Chalky and Multi Surface Satin finishes for contrast and adhered with DecouPage
 So that's my canvas and I am totally digging it! I do believe this is my grooviest piece I have made- So FAB!
Thanks so much for your visit!
As always,your comments and visits,make me smile and my heart happy!
Stay Hip and Be Cool!
