Baby Girl Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to show you my project for today!  Lately I discovered mixed media canvas tutorials on YouTube and was particularly drawn to Christy Tomlinson's work.  I have been eager to try one and of course I had to incorporate my Cricut in there somewhere!  So using her numerous videos as inspiration, I created this canvas for the monthly challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog, which was to create a gift for a baby.

The cartridges/cuts I used are:

Kate's ABC's - Girl with carriage (cut at 5"), "Precious" (cut at 2")
Elegant Edges - Butterflies (cut at 1.5" and 1")

Materials used:
8X10 canvas (purchased mine at Michael's)
Ranger Glue n' Seal
Patterned Paper - DCWV Pretty Princess Stack
Paint - Claudine Helmuth Studio
Ink Sprays
Markers - Faber Castell PITT Big Brush (pink madder), Copic Multiliner ( Sepia)

This was such a fun project!  I can't wait to start another one!
