I wanted to share with you my very first attempt at creating mixed media canvases. I did these two and a half years ago before we started inaTickle.com. I really did not know much about mixed media at that point, but I sure had fun. I’m still learning. I painted the canvases with acrylic paint, glued on a doily and then cut out letters for my words and some of the other embellishments from scrapbooking paper. I used marking pens to add a little more detail to the letters.
My Princess had just started taking ballet classes and loved it. I wanted to make something for her to hang on her bedroom wall. She was only two and loved watching ballet movies.
This first one with the phrase, “Dance like no one is watching” fit her so well. She danced all over the house completely oblivious to anyone else.
One morning she came to her mommy and said, “God wants to dance with me!” Melinda replied with tears, “Yes, He does.”
