Prima "Pin Spin"

Good morning! Today I have a fun project to share with you that I created for the Prima "Pin Spin" day. What we do here is find a pin on Pinterest and draw inspiration from it. Being a lover of Pinterest, this one was no problem whatsoever ;). I have a "Pretty Things that Inspire" board where I pin photos of varoius things that I feel might come in handy if ever I'm in a creative rut. So I headed right for that board and was inspired to create this canvas for my daughter :)

"You're Cute"

Here is my inspiration photo from Pinterest:

I was just completely inspired by this GORGEOUS color palette! Brights mixed with pastels- I couldn't think of a better combo. And the balloons encouraged me to add that "something extra" to this canvas that I might not normally do. Just a great all-around jumpstart for me.

 I couldn't resist this title. I swear, I say "You're CUTE!" about a thousand times a day in an obnoxious baby voice LOL! Perfect- and I can hear myself saying it when I see this canvas. A great way to capture a memory :).

The balloons were created from cardboard and covered with gesso; masked with modeling paste, watercolors and beads on top. Just hand-cut pieces- no need to be perfect :)
