Last weekend I was at a Craftpalooza, which is a gathering of the most fun ladies you could ever hope to be around. We did some "make and takes," and among those were the canvas I am featuring today, with the sentiment, "Happy is a way of life."
We are to alter them using our own spin on the canvas and bring them back next time we meet up, which will be in two or three months. I thought it would be a great time to work on it this week because of Joan's challenge.
This is the canvas we took home:
I used a Martha Stewart Vine Branch punch for the leaves on the right hand side and along the bottom of the canvas. (The leaves are actually a kind of lime green color, but the color did not come out very well in the photo. The "flowers" are pink buttons; the butterflies are double punched from an EK Success butterfly punch out of pink cardstock, and the bodies of the butterflies are embellished with Viva Bright White Liquid Pearls. The bow is made from a 3" wide ribbon that is white, pink, blue and green. A button tied with a lime green bow embellishes the ribbon bow:
