Canvas Inspiration

About a month ago, I went to JoAnn's for some fabric, and noticed they were having a sale on canvases.  I grabbed four 12"x12" canvases on a whim (they were only $2 each!).  Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with them.  Here are some inspiration photos I've been looking at:

The first idea is to use puffy paint to create a design, and then paint the entire canvas one color.  I kind of like the simplicity of the pure white canvas with a textured design, but I would probably paint it a different color to correspond to colors in whatever room I use it in (probably either the office or our bedroom).

 This canvas seemed like a pretty easy project.  Basically, you put masking tape or painters tape in random lines over a canvas.  Then you spray paint the canvas, let it dry, and pull off the tape.  I love the blue, which is very similar to the color we chose for our master.  I'm not sure if this would work as well on the smaller canvases as it does on the larger one.

This is another easy solution.  Glue large sequins to a canvas.  This might be interesting to do as a vertical series, with the bottom more heavily populated, and the top more sparse.

This would be a little more difficult to make, because it's the only one that actually requires some painting skill.  It's also the one I like the most.  I would probably use different colors, but I love the offset flower pattern.

I love the 3D aspect of the flowers on the canvas.  I also love the dirty turquoise background.  I would just have to think of the perfect book to pull pages from for the flower petals.

So which canvas is your favorite?  I'm leaning towards the painted flower, but I still love all of them.
