Lunar New Year | Colour and Photo Inspiration

In honour of the Lunar New Year and to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit,
I chose this art piece by Li Lin as an inspiration challenge this week. 

I was inspired by the branch of blossoms and the colours to create a 5X7 canvas.  

I started by painting over the canvas with some Dimensional paint, just to give it some texture and shine. 
I cut out some branches from some very old Basic Grey pp. 
 I hand cut the hearts and added them to the branches to kind of be like the blossoms. 
 I added a quote, and finished it off with some pink stickles.

Supplies : Basic Grey, Best Creation, Echo Park, Stickles, Heritage Handcrafts Dimensioanl Paint

We hope you are inspired to create this week :)  Happy scrapping!
