Resilience Canvas by Aida Haron
Hello everyone ! It’s Aida here today and I am back with a canvas project which I hope you will like. I’ve used manly Dina Wakely Media to create and the paints are wonderful in their buttery texture.

The title is Resilience and it’s die cut with mat board using the Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

Here you can see the layers and my intention was to show shadows of weeds and small wild flowers.

If you are ready, let’s begin !

Resilience Canvas by Aida HaronStep 1: Work on a slightly damp canvas by spritzing lightly with water. Using a damp, broad brush, paint the canvas with Dina Wakley Media Sky. Dry with a heat tool.
