Cristina Svihalek working on canvas

For Creative Every Day challenge 2013 by Leah Piken Kolidas, I´m taking at least a picture a day for the whole year. And each week I invite an artist to illustrate the week.

Cristina Svihalek works in a multitude of different media. She has the most delightful pieces for home decor on her Manos Creativas Facebook Page. Go have a look!

Last year Cristina was my guest with a cork garland tutorial that you can follow by clicking on the link, this week she shares her work with canvases.

To begin with our week #18 piece: a canvas with 18 dried flowers. Deep burgundy for the background and her own handwriting. Lovely!
And now more pieces: same concept with different colours. Isn´t that bouquet absolutely adorable?
 Stamping hearts on the background for an old key. Click on the picture to see the interesting texture of teh key´s patina.
 Part of the canvas was left white while she painted other section. The elegant, glittery crown adds sparkle to the piece.
 WOnderful mix of flowers with the cute touch of the wooden forms.
Thanks for being my guest today Cristina!
