Powder Room Canvas Re-Do

This canvas was purchased a few years ago from Home Goods.
Forgot to take a before pic
but it just wasn't really what I wanted in the powder room.
I wanted to add more pink/feminine in there, wanted a monogram on it but wasn't sure where I was going with this.

So I started by just painting over the canvas with browns, creams & pinks, the messier the better, there was no plan here, I just went with it.
The flourish is an old Jim Holtz-Ideology Mask which I love love love
See where the flourish kind of ends?
I messed up some how so I needed something to cover it so.....

Then I cut out my monogram w/ my cricut on cardstock & chipboard then deco'd them together to give it a little dimension and added the primitive heart (to cover the mistake),
cut from an old paperback.
The quote i stamped with ink, cut the words out & inked some more...
inky & messy is the look I love

The quote says
"together is where your heart sings loudest"
love that
not sure where i got the quote...if you know, let me know!

Added a coat of Mod Podge & it was done
I love the way it turned out!
