A Canvas for Anna!

 With the last of the paper in the June Scrapbooking Kit from Scrappin' Great Deals, I put together this canvas for my niece Anna.  It is her 4th birthday this weekend and I thought she would like something special for her room.

Firstly I painted the canvas a gorgeous turquoise blue using some Golden Acrylic Paint, then I attached the Sassafras paper to it using Mat Medium mixed with a little of the paint.  Then I started spraying with Glimmer Mist, some bubblegum pink, some marshmallow, some turquoise, until I got the look I wanted.  I cut out a butterfly border using Martha Stewart's Deep Butterfly Border Punch, the butterflies I cut out of a second strip I punched out.  They were punched out of some of the Pink Paislee paper.  LOVE that paper!!

I traced out the letters from a stencil, hand cut them out, and painted on some Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  The flowers were all made using the 3-D flower die from Sizzix, the paper is Basic Grey and MME.  The pearls inside were from my stash, both Prima & Kaiser.

Lastly I splattered around some Glimmer Glaze, added a heart I cut out in the corner and voila!  Done!!

Hope she likes it!  Have a fantastic day, and thanks for dropping by!!
