Paper cut out on canvas





I actually did these a couple of months ago to change up the bathroom. I still can't get decent photos of them to show the details.

These were really fun and something I've wanted to do for a while. I used different scrap booking papers and cut them out to form the characters. The text is some adhesive letters I found and thought were pretty fun. The background sky and water is actually colored tissue paper. I kept the tissue paper folded to cut out the waves, like making snowflakes. Everything was adhered with a glue called Collage Pauge onto 1.5 inch thick canvases.

I liked how they turned out! I especially love when my son looks at them with a huge, happy smile on his face and laughs.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think.
