creative space

a while ago i purchased this gorgous print "the rabbit & the duck"  from Penny @ Pocket Carnival, for a friend who was expecting a baby boy. I thought this print was (still is) just perfect for a little boys room. For months i searched for the right frame and couldnt find one that would fit it nicely......baby Miles was born and I was under pressure to get this thing framed!  i ending up buying a white box frame and machine stitched the print onto some art canvas, then framed it. I love the texture that the art canvas has and with the stitching it makes it look more of a collage. i am very happy with it!

then a card.....the giraffe was scanned from a piece of  vintage wrapping paper (you may remember i made gift tags using this wrapping paper quite some time ago) then printed onto my fave paper (art canvas) & machine stitched it a ll together.

The gift was perfect for them! The Pocket Carnival  print is now hanging up on
miles' wall and the card is possibly going to be framed aswell. :)

 its a good feeling  when you put something together for someone special and they love it!

  1. What a lovely gift. The idea of machine stitching it to canvas is cool, I shall file that idea away for later use!
