Flower on a Mini Canvas

After thinking about how to finish this piece, I decided to glue in onto a little 5"x 5" stretched canvas that I found at a buck store. (Gotta love those dollar stores for inexpensive crafting supplies). I just happened to have some matching red decorative trim in my stash and glued it around the border. I painted the sides of the canvas black. It doesn't look too bad against my red wall and a few sequins and beads give it a bit of sparkle.

I would like to do something similar on a larger scale and with a lot more detail.

oh this is beautiful Inga, well done. I can't wait to see what you will do on a bigger canvas.

I love it - great color contrast and perfect trim, and those red lips!

This reminds me of a flower, actually. On a bigger canvas, I can see a whole grouping of flowers - long thin stems, leaves, etc. with a much larger face as the sun shining down on them. There's lots of possibilities with a larger canvas to use multiple faces. They could even make a great art quilt - with some of details quilted in or painted in after the faces and surrounding fabrics are applied. Ok, way too many ideas here, but for some reason, it just struck me and my brain started running with it.
