Decorated canvases- wall art

Now- this is a project that took me some time-over a few days of planning and doing...but really like the outcome and have it proudly displayed in my dining room. I purchased 10 art canvases for $15.00 -but only used 7 of them in this wall art. I first sketched out my idea and then painted(acrylics) the background in a dark purple blue, then with rubber stamps and paint did the scattered leaf stamps in green. I hand drewn the words in white and used a ruler for the white stripes. Then with a few other colors splattered paint on all the canvases. So now all the painting was done- had to let that dry. The next step was to attach all these canvases together in the pattern I came up with. So on the backside I attached them with strips of wood and small finishing nails to hold them all together.
Now for some more fun stuff- all the embellishments!
I made a purple two toned banner which was also embossed with my cuttlebug..and used sticky alpha for Family and Friends on banner. I made my own flowers and punched  butterflies & added brads & rhinestones. With my Cricut (songbird or Serenade) I cut the fence w/bird , birdcage and doves and laid them out according to my sketch. Of course the last finishing touches were the green inked leaves (see top pic) and some Stickles were ever needed. Another wonderful handmade project for my Home!
