Altered Canvas

There are so many examples online of mixed media on canvas, that I had to give it a try.  As I was looking over my paper pads and there was one from DCWV that caught my interest.  It's the Ultimate Premium Stack, which has 120 sheets from 10 mini stacks, love it!

The first thing I did was get a 12 x 12 blank canvas and painted the edges with black acrylic paint.
Next I gave it a blue sky and green grass. 
Then I added a tree, leaves, sun and some flowers.  But wasn't complete until I added the clouds and a bird.
The tree was freehand, flowers, clouds and sun are paper punches.
This is the start of my Seasons Canvas Collection.  Have to start looking for a wall to hang them. Hope you like it.
