How about a fun, springy craft?
This was time consuming but not really that difficult.
I painted the canvas purple first and let it dry.
Then I traced the top of a tube of paint to get a circle shape, and cut that out. I glued it a little to the side because I didn't want the flower to be centered.
Then it got tedious. I cut a million little leaf shapes. I started off drawing them and then cutting them according to the lines, but then free handed because I realized that it didn't matter what shapes and sizes they were.
I mod-podged them onto the canvas as I went, because someone encouraged me to, and I'm glad; all those little leaves would have gotten everywhere! I just kept gluing until it felt full enough, then went over everything with a coat of matte mod-podge.
Love the way it turned out; the different papers look so beautiful together!
