I Love You To The Moon And Back

Hello everyone!  It's taken me some time to nurse my Superbowl wounds.  Let us not even speak of it any further!  Now, I've been crafting here and there, and have an interesting project to share with you today.  A good friend of mine recently approached me and asked me to help her design a canvas for her sister's two little girls.  I've spent some time scrapbooking them in the past, and since I've never done anything like this I was up for the challenge.  We started with a 18 x 24 canvas.  I am no painter, but my mother in law is and that came in handy.  She painted the ombre background for us, going from a night sky into a bright day.  We added some stencils and painted on the moon and some stars with gold and silver glitter paint.  We then added the phrase that I cut out of vinyl.  We found the fairies on the net and traced them into Silhouette and cut them out several times using the new Silhouette chipboard.  Some grass, a few butterflies, clouds and flowers later we were done.  I really, do love the way this turned out.  Her nieces will get to see this new creation for their bedroom this Sunday.  I hope they like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
