To the Moon and Back

For those who don't know, and I don't know how you could have missed this, but I have a new granddaughter! She is 3 months old. Unfortunately she lives far away in Phoenix but I am lucky enough to get out to see her every month or so.

I love creating home decor projects for her room. When I saw this canvas, I knew it was something I would like to do for her.

Here is a link to it at Oriental Trading

These canvases have a design already on them. Once you apply your paint , the design shows through.

Working with Koi Watercolors, I started the background with a soft layer of blue.


I continued adding blues and then some purples. Yellow and gold for the stars.

I thought the finished canvas needed some embellishments before hanging. Here is my finished canvas. Perfect for my granddaughter's room!

 Here is a close up. These canvases are such a joy to work with! I have learned not to use too much water and not to overwork the canvas. But it is really fun and I love the results!



 Thank you for visiting! I appreciate your kind words!
