I think it came out cute. I love the paper scraps across the top of the canvas. The flowers are quite large compared to the houses but I think they make it fun.
How Did She Do That? Townscape Canvas
First I added book paper and green patterned paper to the canvas with mod podge. You really can’t see the book paper because I changed my mind and used more acrylic paint for the sky. I added green acrylic paint to the painted paper to tone it down a little and blue paint for the sky. I then added warm white paint for clouds. The houses were made from grunge paper with the townscape die and colored them with spray inks. Setting them aside to dry I used stamps to add the stems for the flowers. The flowers were cut out from scrap paper and attached to the canvas with mod podge. I stamped the words and the bird and doodled here and there. The last thing I did was add the houses and then covered the entire canvas with mod podge to seal it.
