Can't wait to show you what I've been working on . . . .
Okay, so if you read this post about "A Boy & His Guitar," then you know I've been working on some annual Birthday Gifts that I give to my little friends Camden and Ashton, a brother and sister who were born on the same day exactly seven years apart.
Well, Ashton's is now complete, and this time around, I took step-by-step pictures of the gift - a 20 x 20 decorative canvas pillow - as it was being created. I've never painted a pillow before, but when I saw the canvas case online recently, I knew that I wanted to give it a try. Wanna see the process?
Canvas case covered in Gesso and sketched in pencil
Adding color with Caran D'ache watercolor and acrylic paints
Finished with metallic and gel pens, additional pencil and polka dots
Oh! And a handmade fabric flower with a Swarovski crystal button for her hair
"Love Lives Here"
I know the colors will compliment her room (because I helped her Mom decorate it ;) and I hope that the (newly) 12-year-old will love it as much as I love her!
Thanks for your time and have fun at the Party . . . .
