From Art Journal to Canvas #2

Hi Everyone!
Due to a back injury, I haven't been able to create very much art until the last few weeks. I haven't been able to sit on my art room chair long enough to complete anything. My back issues have been around since I was little. This time I've been struggling since July 15th; physical therapy, medications, etc. and I'm finally starting to feel human. I've tried to paint or play in my art journal while I'm partially laying down, but pain has a way of stopping all creativity.
So for now, I'll be sharing with you what I've been up to but there will be no step by step processes. 
First, my art journal spread was using leftover TCW Gel Medium from my craft sheet and the new Daisy Chain stencil. I finished it off with paint in blues and purples and TCW Gold Gesso.
I decided to try to duplicate it on a canvas.
This took a few days. I couldn't sit very long at times when I had physical therapy.
It was created the same way as the journal spread but I used the new Infinite Lace stencil and TCW Modeling Paste

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them
That's it for now.
Although I haven't been around here on the my blog, I have posted a few creations on my Instagram account (@karenlizhenderson).
Thanks so much for stopping by!
