Canvas Wall Hanging


I just completed this canvas wall hanging for my daughter's room. I wanted something special for her room and was inspired by a piece of K&Co. paper to create this. I bought a painters canvas at Mikes, stamped the background with little polka dots, cut out squares of various sizes using my Nesties and then chose some random alphabet letters and fun images cut with my Circut. I added stitching to each piece, pearls and buttons. I kept with a very particular color scheme as it compliments the name hanging I did prior. I really love how it all came together. Now she has a very custom wall hanging that didn't cost me much except some time and love. Thanks for visiting me today:)

Supplies:
Painters Canvas, Mikes
Square scallop Nesties
Sewing machine, pink thread
Pearls, buttons, twine, embrodiery floss
Cricut, Plantin Schoolbook, Storybook, Walk In My Garden, Don Juan
PTI cardstock
