Dancin' Mae Canvas

It's been a long week, but I wanted to find some time to get to my craft room and little by little I did!!  I  bought a 6x6 canvas at my local scrapbook store a few weeks back and decided it was time to use it.  I printed out a Dancin' Mae image from Some Odd Girl and let the creative juices flow!  I got off to a good start with deciding what colors to color her in with - something bright to go with MarkerPop's Bright Colors Challenge - and I knew I wanted to use the sketch from this month's SOG challenge, but then I got stumped.  So... I left my craft space and came back to it a couple times before finally figuring it all out tonight.  Whew!!

So without further adieu, here is my Dancin' Mae Canvas:

It's a little faint, but I used a stencil on the top portion and some glitter paint to give the canvas a little texture.  The bottom is a solid coat of the glitter paint.

I used the great tutorial from the Odd Girl herself to color the red hair (I love the new format she has for the tutorials - super easy to print and keep stashed with my copics where it will get used!).

I wanted a good saying so I searched the web until I found this one and printed it on a piece of cardstock:

I'm not much of a dancer, but I can definitely be a little silly at times so maybe this will inspire me to dance a little more ;)

And here are the challenges I'm entering into with this - 

I enjoyed breaking out of the mold and doing something on the canvas instead of a card... I hope you liked it too.
