SO PROUD of this canvas I made

OK... so this was a whole new experience for me... I created a canvas for the wonderful Montessori Kindy 2 of my girls have gone to over the past few years.  Jessie finished up with them this week, as she moves to a Pre-prep program at the kindy at the girls' school.

So to say thanks I made this.... it was a scary at first, but look at how lovely it turned out!

I used acrylic and water paints for the background, the green grass is tissue paper. Patterned paper and letter stickers and words. Flowers, leaves...
Yellow Lollipop from Charms Creations  for the sun, plus a cloud.
Pink Kite and clouds from a Lil something.
I did a layer of mod podge over it all to hold all the flat bits down too.

Thanks for LOOKing! Leave me a comment so I know you've been by!
