I was  so inspired by Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday video this week!  What really intrigued me was the product she used to turn ordinary paper into a surface that would take watercolors -- Golden Absorbent Ground.  Then I went on the hunt for it. Found it. My Mom has long called poppies "such happy little flowers" and Donna used them in her video I thought, let me give this a try - but on canvas! I was leery at first because I didnt want to make a mistake but then I remembered in art, there are no mistakes! And I WENT FOR IT!  I love how it turned out.  I had this GREAT frame that I picked up on clearance for $1!(yes $1!!) and my happy lil flowers look so pretty it in! Cannot wait to try another canvas! This GOLDEN product is AWESOME!

    that little bit about in art there are no mistakes was one of the best pieces of advice i heard all through spark! i'm always so scared to make something that doesn't turn out the way i want it to that i talk myself out of even trying.:D
