who knew?!

remember a couple of days a go when i said i had a dream about painting? well, this is what i was dreaming about! usually when i sit down to do something like this i end up disappointed when it doesn't turn out the way it was in my head, but this time i think it actually ended up cuter than i imagined. 


i used one of the 5"x5" canvases i snagged from the dollar spot, gesso'ed over the princess wand that was outlined on it and went at it with some studio & liquitex acrylics, asterisks from some of my favorite sets of thickers and a little bit of basic grey fabric to make my own little photobooth. then i printed teeny tiny versions of some of my photobooth strips from orlando and glossy accented them right onto the sides of the canvas.

the last canvas i made currently resides in my closet and has never seen the light of day. but, i am actually really psyched on this one and can't wait to play with some more mini canvases! now to find the perfect spot for this little guy!
