Summer is almost here!  
This time of year always takes me back to my childhood.  My mom would take my brother and I to the park where we would play and swing in the warm sunshine. I remember running in my backyard; pretending I could fly like the butterflies.  My mom had a lovely rose garden in the center of the back yard and beautiful peony bushes lining the back fence.  I loved to walk among all of that fragrant floral display of color.
Ahhh.....summertime and childhood memories!

I guess that is what inspired the sweet little vintage canvas I am sharing on DecoArt's Media Blog right now.  I'd love for you to hop on over and take a look.  I have a complete pictorial tutorial to show you some new techniques and possibly answer some questions you might have about a DecoArt Media product and how it can be used.

Enjoy the sunshine and take some time to PLAY with your creativity!
