Hello Fancy Pants Designs readers!! I'm so happy you joined me today to share a fun new Trend...Whales!! Have you seen those cute, adorable whales that are all over the new Down by Shore line? They are so stinkin' cute! And since I have a brand new little boy I thought it would be fun to make a mixed media canvas for his new room.
Here is my canvas:
Down by the Shore Colorful Days Paper / Down by the Shore Tape Stickers / Down by the Shore Label Stickers / Down by the Shore Brag Pad / Down by the Shore Clips / Down by the Shore Decorative Bags / Down by the Shore Decorative Tags / Down by the Shore Flairs / Down by the Shore Pennants /Down by the Shore Buttons Set / Down by the Shore Rub-ons
And here is a little "how to" on how I made this canvas.
First, I went to Michael's and bought a canvas and it just so happened I found this awesome 13.5 x 13.5 canvas that had a frame cut out in it. So after I opened the canvas I spread gesso all over the canvas to complete cover it.
Next, I found a cute saying and typed the words in different fonts and printed it out on my Cameo. I then adhered each letter down.
After I had the base down I started to embellish the canvas with tags, flags, flairs, rub-ons, and buttons.
And here is a close up where I used one of the decorative bags and the tag that is inside I wrote down his birth info. Also see the fun orange/yellow paint?. I used one of the stencils and added some color to molding paste.
Hope this inspires you to either make a canvas or to use whales on your next project. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
