Remember the canvases I did for my son's room? Here's the Tutorial if you missed it, but I had one canvas left over. So I had my creative juices going, changing my mind several times in what direction I wanted, then taking the plunge and made this little ditty!
Here's what you need:
*Canvas, whatever size you want
*Paint for the canvas (I spray painted mine with a soft pink called "Ballet Slipper")
*Picture of birds (I found mine from my favorite vintage picture website Graphics Fairy and here is the picture I used)
*Fabric or Paper
*Little Silk Flower (Optional)
Step 1: Paint Canvas. Then cut out your birds using your picture as your stencil. I used Fabric for mine, but you can use paper as well. Then Modge Podge the back of your paper/fabric and stick to your painted canvas.
Step 2: Glue your branch onto your canvas, making it look like your birds are perched on the branch. Now, I thought that the canvas looked a little bland, so I glued little flowers and leaves from a stem of flowers I had from our wedding 7 years ago. Kind of makes me happy to use those flowers for things for my daughter.
And Ta da! A simple, sweet picture. I love it and catch myself stopping just to look at it.
