Poppy Canvas

Good evening, how are you all today?  I go into hospital for steroid injections tomorrow so I shall be having a weekend of rest but I shall definitely have something crafty by my side lol.  In November I took a class at Indigo Blu with the amazing talented artist Jenny Marples and we did this lovely grungy canvas.  She was a fantastic teacher and I discussed about adding more to the background and she was really supportive and wanted to see it when I finished it.  Everything is the same apart from the circles, lines over the circles, script stamp and shading on the flowers.  As always the products I used are at the bottom of the page :-).
I would like to enter the following challenges :-
Altered Eclectics Challenge - Anything Goes Mixed Media/Altered Art
Oddball Art Stamp Challenge - Lots of Layers (layers are black paint, white paint, drippage, texture paste, mega flakes)
Anything But A Card Creations Challenge - Facebook Group

I love the background, lots of grungy texture.

Right I better be off, it might be a few days before I am back again, but if I can I might pop something on in the morning.  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.
Happy Art :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
