A Special Art Canvas

Someone I know and love
saw the image
of the girl painting
that I had colored
a Mo's Digital Pencil "stamp"
and fell in love with it!
We're talking teen-age hissy fit
love with it

being the AWESOME godmother that I am...
I whipped it up into
an art canvas for her...
she's not seen it yet
and she doesn't follow my blog
so I will share it with you first!
I took a blank white canvas
and although you can't tell it here
gave it a coat of off-white paint
layered on some background papers

then I printed, colored with Copics and cut out
Mo's digi image...

and layered it on with tons of pop dots behind it to support it...
all layers but the girl image
got coats of Modge Podge under over and in between...
Since I could not find 4x6 or 5x7 flat backed acrylic frames
I cut up a CTMH page protector
and made my own photo pocket

(btw: the paper with the blue tag topper comes out)
I layered that on some paper that was punched
with the SU roll-a-dex punch so it looks like it
came right off her sketch pad!
Added some real paint brushes
as embellishments...
just to show it off...
here's a photo slipped in
the photo pocket...
Notice any resemblance?!

That's my goddaughter Maren.
I really like this-
maybe I won't give it to her after all...
I will...
but there may be another one
coming up
as soon as I feel better!

That's it for today!
I did that in fits and stops and starts.
This recovery thing is not fun
and super slow.
Speaking of which-
it's back to bed.

Until next time
happy stamping and scrapping.

This is so wonderful - beautifully done! I can see why you would want to keep it but she will be so happy to receive it! I love poster/cards that combine images and accessories - and this is perfection! Wishing you a happy day!
