Canvas Panels

My girls got a special gift this year because I was feeling creative despite the fact that my new townhouse is a total mess. I have a half a room dedicated to scrap things, I just haven't had the time or the motivation to really get into setting it up. It's going to be a must though because Champ got me a sewing machine for Christmas this year (!!) and now I have to get things set up so I can play with it.

Back to the girls.

I tried something different because I wanted to try another medium so I went to Hobby Lobby and bought myself some 10x10 canvas panels and painted them. I've got five total, but the last one will be mine and I haven't done it yet. But the other four came out lovely!


Each of one of the girls got a different one. Gina's was Love with the quote "love conquers all" on it.

(sorry for the poor quality on the photos)

Jacki's was faith. Her quote was from St. Francis of Assisi. "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle."

Faith Panel

Jesse's was hope, with an Albert Einstein quote. "Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow."

Kathleen's was dream with a Eleanor Roosevelt quote. Her's I didn't get a good photo of besides in the group shot. Everyone seemed to love them, which means I'm considering opening an Etsy shop again.

Shop or not though, I was pretty pleased with how they came out, very pleased.
