I have been making a mixed media canvas every month to display in our front hall. I found a calendar at work which had cute pictures of girls and I knew I wanted to use one for this month's canvas. 

I saw this picture and thought of my twin sister. I painted the background and used some spackling compound to give the sand texture. I finished the background using stamps, rubons, etc. I printed the quote on tissue paper which I applied with modge podge. I like to do that because then it blends in. I added sea shells that we have collected.
















Thank you for stopping by! I would love  for you to become a follower and leave a comment.  We have lots more fun projects planned for you for the rest of the week! I look forward to seeing you again.

Very cool canvas Jean! I love the textures and dimension; a perfect frame to the story of the two girls. I didn't know you were a twin (or maybe I just don't remember) LOL!
