Sydney and Angelynn



You know I've been busy working on some Christmas gifts for the ladies at work. Well, I thought I would show you the first two projects. These are for my friend Barb for her neices, Sydney and Angelynn.

For Sydney's we used a 5x7 black and white photo and I painted the 8x10 artist's canvas in an ivory acrylic paint. The designer papers I used were from Three Bugs in a Rug and I added some lilac ribbon, a heart charm with silver cord and Prima Flowers and brads. I wanted to go with the sentiment, Follow Your Dreams, as it is inspirational and she is now eleven years old.

For Angelynn's we used two 4x6 black and white photos and I painted the canvas in a light lilac and dry brushed some white across it. The designer papers I used were from Daisy D's I think and the metal hardware is from We R Memorykeepers. I added some Michael's ribbon, Prima flowers and brads and I dotted some doodles with my white gel pen. The Little Angel sentiment was just perfect for her.



I'm always nervous when people ask me to do stuff like this because I'm afraid they might not like what I did or that it isn't quite what they imagined. But Barb was super pleased when I brought them both in to her last week and she showed everyone at work. Whew!! What a relief......the only bad thing is that now several other people have asked if I have time to do one for them. Good thing I've learned how to say no!!! hahaha!!!
