Loves Rubberstamps Saturday Inspiration: A Father's Day Canvas!

Hello, It's Inspiration Day for me over at Loves Rubberstamps and  I wanted to share a canvas project I made for a Father's Day present to my dad.

Here it is...

I felt like it had been so long since I had made anything other than cards so I was so excited to take the opportunity to make my dad a canvas project for Father's Day.  I always love making these as special gifts or keepsakes.  This picture was taken in front of the Golden Gate Bridge and my dad is carrying my son, Ethan.  My dad is retired and is Ethan favorite baby sitter! :)   They do spend a lot of time together and I knew he would love this gift!  I kept it pretty simple and a little more masculine.  I did load it up with lots of Prima including the papers which are from the "Seashore" collection.  I also added some of these cool bark butterflies, some wood pieces and a small typo bulb which says "Us".   I also have a metal token from Tim Holtz.  The flowers I added are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.  I did add a touch of mix media by stenciling with some medium sculpting paste mixed in with some distress paints.

Here are the Supplies Used:
Seashore - Prima
Bark Butterflies, wood piecessmall typo bulb - Prima

Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used in my project and to check out all of the cool Prima goodies there!  

Have a wonderful weekend!
