My First Canvas

Well I have been a huge admirer of canvas art and I have been meaning to try it for quite awhile.. So I finally got the guts up to actually try one. I made one for the baby's bedroom since I've been trying to actually decorate it and make it her own.

So I went onto pinterest and pinned some good ideas and these were the two that I was trying to go with:

So here is what I did, I got myself a canvas from Joann's
Then I painted it a solid green color:
Next I wanted an ombre look to the canvas so I painted the top darker and the bottom lighter ( I mixed the green with a blueish color and the light green with some white)
Next I drew a hard online onto the canvas and then started to arrange my buttons, which is kinda a bit harder then you'd think. They need to line up and fit into place just right:
Then I took some twine and wrote the word love and sealed it with Mod Podge:
and here is the finished product for her room!!!!!
I'm sooo excited to hang it in her room.... I know I will be trying out some more canvases in the near future and can't wait!!!

I'm linking it up with The Pinspiration Project #14
