Pastel Canvas by Cheryl Wright

A few weeks ago it was my mother-in-law's birthday.  Since she is in a nursing home (due to dementia) it is extremely difficult to buy her gifts.

I've been dabbling in canvases, and I know she loves to look at pretty things, so decided to make this canvas for her.

The background was made using stencils and texture paste, then coloured with various pastel sprays. Once that was dry, the gold birdcage was added, then flowers placed around it. The "love" plate is actually a charm. I tucked the loop behind the flowers so it couldn't be seen.

I hope you've enjoyed this canvas. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time!
