Poppy Flower Canvas

Don't forget tomorrow is the first Craft Spot Challenge! So come back and link up all of your spring fever projects. Here's mine!
I saw this canvas here and just loved it. I decided to make my own version for Olivia's room using what I already had.
I grabbed a blank canvas and squirted three colors of paint.
I painted it not smooth but so the brush strokes with the different colors would show through
Then cut out all of your fabric pieces (you can use paper but I didn't have any I liked). Add a layer of mod podge where your fabric will go. Lay your fabric in the mod podge and smooth. Add another layer on top of the fabric.

Continue by layering and adding all of your fabric to create the look you want.
I then pull out my brown ink and inked the edges. I used a tissue to wipe off the extra and get the color and look I wanted.Add ribbon to the back with hot glue and hang. (The mod podge really is clear but I couldn't get a picture without it showing)
Don't forget to link up your Spring Fever Projects tomorrow! Remember you can email your project to me if you don't have a blog or its set to private.
I am adding this to:

I really like your picture. We are going to Atlanta tomorrow, so I won't be able to link anything up (too busy packing to come up with a project), but I hope to link up at your next one.
