Little Mermaid and Tangled Altered Canvas

I was going thru my pictures and realized I totally forgot to post these. I altered these a couple of months ago for a co-worker. The Little Mermaid was for my co-worker and the Tangled was a special request for her daughter's birthday!

The plain 9x12 canvas I purchased at Michael's. The first one I got with a 40% coupon, but when I went back a couple weeks later to purchase a second canvas, they had the 7pk available and much cheaper than buying one by one!

On both the canvas' I sprayed homemade glimmer mist for the background.

Little Mermaid was made using the Cricut Disney "Dreams Come True" cartridge. The shiny sand on the bottom was made by mixing Liquitex "Natural Sand" texture gel with some acrylic paint. After the sand was dry (approx 24 hrs), I then added the die cuts and other embellishments.

This was my first time altering a canvas and I must say I think it came out pretty awesome!

Tangled was created using an SVG file I got online. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from. The castle was from a different svg file and the leaves at the top right corner are from a sizzix sizzlit die "branch w/leaves".  For this background I used some shimmer sprays by Lindy's stamp gang. Not sure where I got the grass from. Its been a while since I made this, so sorry. That's what happens when I forget to post my projects right away!

Hope you enjoyed looking and thanks for stopping by!
