Birdies in the Treetops Mixed Media Canvas

A $30 canvas, a little paint, a bit of scrapbook paper, quite a few hours of time, and I turned a plain apartment wall into...
a happy place:)

I used the words of a song I used to sing to my babies, "the birdies in the treetops sing their song," as inspiration. My girl picked out the colors she wanted in this mixed media collage, and I love the blue/turquoise sky with the barn red couch.

"The birdies in the treetop sing their song. The angels chant their chorus all day long. The flowers in the garden blend their hue, so why can't I and why can't you sing praises too."

I hope you all have a blessed week.

Sorry the pictures are a little blurry and have bad lighting :(
