Canvas Art

I’ve been meaning to post about Dakota’s room, but I keep forgetting for one reason or another. 

Her room was a big conglomeration of little projects. I really like to make things and I’ve seen a ton of cute ideas on Pinterest, so instead of buying everything, I got to work.

Of all the projects I made myself, the altered canvas’ were my favorite. They were easy to do (once I decided what I was going to do!) and a lot of fun.The first one I did was nothing more than sunshine and flowers. I had a new flower punch that I was dying to use and this seemed the perfect project to try it out. I spray painted the canvas’ first, then using my punches, scissors, cricut and other supplies created the designs.

The next canvas was based on a design I had seen online (I couldn’t find it anywhere after the first time I saw it!!) and wanted to replicate. I picked up a 3 dimensional butterfly punch and decided that was going to be my second canvas. It’s probably my least favorite of the three I made, but I’m okay with it. It was really hard to figure out the placement of the butterflies and how many to make…and I still don’t love how the butterfly’s are placed.

I was having a really hard time thinking of a third design, but luckily my mom was here and she helped me think of the next one. I used my cricut to cut out the little girl and dog, and a punch for the balloons. I used twine for the balloon strings.

These are all hung above her dresser and make me happy every time I’m in her room. Hopefully they will make her happy when she’s older too.
