Monkeying around....

I made this cute little guy for a baby shower gift. It's a 6x6 canvas so it can be hung or placed on a shelf. 

It was kind of fun to delve into a little of the world of working on canvas. I was my first attempt at some of this. I painted the background and then used mod podge to glue down the paper. The stars were made using modeling paste. After they dried I used gold Rub 'n Buff to make them shine a bit. You can still see some of the white but it didn't seem to mess things up too much.  I put one coat of MP over all of that for durability. The monkey and moon were cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. I don't know why I felt like the moon needed a little bling, but I did. The parents can put the babies name down in the corner if they want.  

I am looking forward to doing more of these, it was fun!
