My $2 art.

I saw this over at MX Momma and put it away in my to-do folder. I decided to only do one part of it though!

First I picked up this canvas at the dollarstore for $2! Yes I know, $2! It is now a dollarama PLUS. booo
Anyway I traced the letters on the canvas with pen
And started painting away!
I made a few mistakes on the way, but thats ok no one will see it. (oh, I also re-traced the letters with permanent marker.) next comes...
glaze and paint..and voila
All you need is love. I think it would look really nice framed as well.

Oh I also made this yesterday.
This cute little pin cushion. Recognize the lace sister? hahahahha
I love it.
