Shane’s Very First Canvas Art


Yes, my nephew was born on September 1st and I could not be more excited! My sister and BIL picked out this super cute bedding for the nursery so I knew I had to make Little Shane a piece of art for his new bedroom. I used the quilt on the crib as my inspiration for this mixed media piece. IMG_2333

I started with a 12X12 canvas and layered it with torn canvas and fabric pieces-a technique I learned from Finn this past summer. From there, the layers of tissue paper, ocean critters cut from my Cricut and paints came to life. I knew that it needed some sand, starfish and shells to complete the look. Googly eyes added the final touch and the canvas was ready for the new baby! IMG_2334

    Love this. I just love all the dimension you added. What a happy piece of art to have in the nursery! I am sure it will be treasured.
