This is for the TLC395 rolled flowers challenge. I have been rollin', rollin', rollin' for days now and my hands are about to drop off. As you can see I have a few more flowers to go, but I am thinking of putting in a telegraph pole and wire (then add some birds). Any suggestions to complete this canvas would be very much appreciated.
This is a first for me using a large canvas, I sponged the background with TH Distress Inks - Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade. The whitish effect in the top right corner is where I used a baby wipe to remove a coffee stain (long story).
All the flowers are MFT rolled rose dies, glued down with quick dry adhesive. I used a fine line pen to draw stems. The paper is rather old from K & Co, it is double sided and has a linen feel about it.
Thanks for looking and I would love any feedback on how to complete this - more flowers or pole/fence post etc. Thanks so much.

Susie, you really have been rolling in the flowers! I love the colours and various sizes of these beauties! I don't have any suggestions as to any additions to this canvas, but your idea is probably good. Maybe even a lighthouse?

Hi Susie - this is so beautiful. OMGosh - love it. I've never tried canvas before... and I'm a rolled rose addict so maybe I'm halfway there - lol. Love the beautiful sky background as well. Did you end up adding anything? I'm big on meaningful quotes and sentiments... I wouldn't be able to resist stamping some thought-provoking quote. But it's lovely just the way it is, you don't need to add a thing. (thanks for the lovely comment you left on my gallery card...) c.
