It's a Boy!

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well as predicted the rain arrived early this afternoon!  At least we had some sunshine for 2 of the days.  I managed to get lots of washing out and dried.  Anyway today I have been having a crafty old time in my craft room.  I have managed to get a couple of blog posts scheduled and made a couple of cards too!

Today's make is a canvas that I have had an idea for for a while.  I hope you like it!



Recipe

1. 8 x 8 square canvas which I have painted with a mixture of  Liquitex clear Gesso and Pebeo  blue and white acrylic paint.  Once this was dry I added a layer of PVA dried this with heat gun then I painted again with cream matt emulsion and dried this.
2.  I then too 2 pieces of netting and adhered to the canvas with Modge Podge.  The teddies along the bottom where also attached with Modge Podge
3.  The wooden corner piece I painted with cream matt emulsion,
4. The picture of the baby is from my stash and has been painted on with Modge Podge.  
5.  I made a bow with lace added pearls and a blue flower with pearls.
6.  The sentiment was made with Martha Stewart paper clay and Alphabet mold.
7.  To finish off I have added 3 flowers.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
