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!

1st Snow

While visiting us in Michigan in November, my granddaughter was able to explore her first snow. She did not care that she was so bundled up ...
