Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. {Week 2}

Today, I'm linking up with Steph & Katie
So I wanted to make this, but in my own way.
 
Pretty!!
Unfortunately, there is not a link to it, just a picture on Pinterest. 
So I started with a 16x20 canvas
(I bought a pack of 2 for $7.99 at HobLob)
Then I painted it grey, it took several coats.
(you know how much I love grey!!)
I bought a book of scrapbook paper that was different patterns but coordinated.  I then cut out several different sizes of "petals" and ended up cutting more after I laid them out on the canvas.
I glued each one to the canvas in the spot I wanted and let that dry.
I then put on 3 coats of ModPodge, letting each coat dry before putting on another.
I ended up with this.
I'm rather happy with it.
Now, only if I could decide where to hang it. 
 
Can't wait to find another project to do for next week!!
I'm thinking something Christmas.....

Hey girl! You did such a great job. I've tried a similar canvas from Pinterest but it was a big fat FAIL. Thank you for linking up with us!!
