Life is better...

Although I don't work outside of my home, my boys usually go to a sitter one day per week.  I am lucky enough to have a close friend that is able to watch them on that day.  My boys love her and she is amazing with them!  So, for Christmas, I wanted to make her a little something special  and this is what I ended up with...

First, I used a gray spray ink to add a little bit of color to the canvas so that it wasn't such a stark white.  I sprayed it in a couple of places and then rubbed the entire canvas down with a rag to spread it out and dry it off.  

The letters, birds, and branch were all cut out using my Cricut Expression and then glued on to the canvas. For the letters, I used the Alphalicious font.  I finished the wall hanging off with a thin layer of Mod Podge.

When the ModPodge dried, I used a fine tipped marker to draw on the music notes and birds' eyes.

Thanks for stopping by,
