...{...Baby Harper's Gift...}...

Back in the end of February I went to a baby shower for one of my best childhood friends.  She was about to welcome sweet baby Harper into her life the following week.  For gifts a lot of times I like to make altered canvas' collages.  Usually I incorporate photos or leave a space for a photo to be inserted at a later time.  The early ones had more painting on them.


For this one I switched canvas' and purchased one that was meant for watercolors.  I like it MUCH better and will probably stick w/ this kind from now on.  I used several of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to color the canvas.  My inspiration came from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy paper that is used on the canvas.  Loved that it was a scene and could be used as the main focal interest.  Stamped some banner images from Papertrey Ink and cut those out.  Also used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  "harper" is glittered thickers from American Crafts.  I think the "baby" metal piece is from Making Memories.  I had beaded the wire to hang it.

It was a bit daunting for me to make one w/o a photo, but I was pretty pleased with the way this one turned out.
