Mixed Media Canvas Dog

Hey, my dear crafty friends, here's the challenge theme for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week: "Lions and lambs, oh my! " From cute Lawn Fawn critters to animal print stamps, collaging images of your favorite animals to scrapbooking a photo of your pet – Join us and share how animals inspire you this week.

I was inspired to create a canvas with the photo of my first pet.

Although I've had many different family pets since I was a little girl, Ding Dong was my very first own pet, and I still remember how excited I was when I first saw her. She's a very beautiful West Highland white terrier. This photo was taken when she was 8 weeks old.

I stenciled the background with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Prima Flowers White Sand Texture Paste, and colored it with Distress Paints. The die cut butterflies was colored with Distress Piants then covered with Prima Flowers Crackle Paste.


All the embellishments were also colored with Distress Paints and distressed with Faber-Castell Big Brush Pens. 

To attach the embellishments on the canvas, I used Tombow Glue. 

This canvas is now on the shelf in my craft room. I really love the bright and delightful colors and the cute photo of Ding Dong.
