Mini Canvases

A couple of weeks back, the girls celebrated Teacher's Day at their school, and we made a series of mini canvases as Teacher's Day gifts. I was tasked with creating the "prototype", lol, and created a few slightly different versions.







I misted the canvases with a mix of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in various colours, and using Prima Marketing's lovely new masks. I then used some muslin overlaid on a piece of burlap as a base for the flowers. The words were printed on cardstock, cut into strips and then inked.




I did a slightly different version for the male teachers.




Here's a look at the entire collection of canvases.
