My sweet little Ganny Baby (I am her Ganny Barb) is turning four years old. How time flies. She is living in North Carolina so I won't be seeing her until next summer. I wanted to make her something other than a card - so decided a little canvas would be perfect. I decided to use some of my Paper Smooches stamps. The challenge on the Paper Smooches Spark Challenge blog this week is Anything Goes. Yeah!!
I prepped a 5 x 5 canvas with Gesso. I then painted a loose landscape scene of the canvas. Sky and grass - very loose landscape. I stamped the sentiment, sun and unicorn on watercolor paper. They were colored with a variety of gelatos, distress paint and distress ink. The hearts were stamped on an old magazine page, colored and cut out. I stamped the clouds on the canvas and then put a layer of Gesso on the inside. I added Whipped Texture Medium on top of the design and swirled it around so it has great dimension. After it was a little dry, I took a glass bead/glitter gel medium and put on top of the clouds. I also used the glitter gel medium on top of the sentiment. All the stamped/colored images were adhered to the canvas with gel medium. I put gel medium over the top of everything to seal it. Of course, being for a little girl, after using her favorite colors of purple and pink, I had to add glitter. All the purple on the unicorn has purple Stickles on it. I finished the side of the canvas with some patterned paper.

I am also entering this in the monthly challenge at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge where the challenge this month is to use stamps.
