Today my project is has been two weeks since the attacks on Paris, my son says it is too soon to be hopeful.  I already had my "mourning" post.

 This is an 8x10 canvas project.  One of my first attempts at a canvas.

The fleur de lis started as white chip board.  I used distress stains and then shimmery spray ink.  I finally added a medallion in the center.  I also used the same shimmer spray on the clothes pin, flourish, and the entire canvas after I mod podged the paper on the canvas.
