{wall art} for my mom

{custom canvas} for my mom
One of the handmade gifts I made last year is this canvas for my mom. It has the names of everyone in our immediate family. I used THIS tutorial as the basis, changing the paint behind the text to a shimmery blue, the background as a shimmery periwinkle, and the color highlighting the text as a pearlized dark purple (all Martha Stewart paints).  My mom's favorite color is purple, and I chose colors to match some the art she already has up in her living room.  I also used three different sized vinyl letters instead of just one.  It's kinda cool to see what our family looked like at this point, and how it will change in the future as my sister's baby is born and more grandbabies are added.  Definitely saving a moment in time in art form.  XO
