Last night I had so much fun creating two mixed media canvases for Madelynn's room.

The best part was getting to use so many different materials-canvas, paint, fabric, wood, stickers, and glue! I used two painter's canvases I had laying around and painted them a pale pink. Then I found a coordinating green fabric and glued it in a strip on the bottom of each canvas.

The tree stems, leaves, and flowers were leftover wall "stickers" that I used to embellish the walls of Madelynn's room. They are removable, so I had so much fun playing around with different designs...they are so goof-proof!

The little owl is actually a thin, wooden, paintable cutout from a craft store-but since I didn't have very many paint colors, I decided to use fabric instead! I cut the fabric shapes just like the pattern that was pre-drawn on each owl, then glued them on. Soooo easy! Then all I had to do was glue the owls to the canvases. it was so much fun!

Madelynn's room is almost done and ready for pictures! Only a few last minute touches!


  1. OH SO ADORABLE!!! Can't wait to see Miss Madelynn's room when you're done! Love, love, love these!

  2. I love it sister! When Paisley saw this picture she said, "Is that Madelynn's room?" She knew what it was for before I did! :)

  3. What a great use of color and texture. That will make a wonderful "pop" from her wall and it seems like such a fun way for her to learn color, texture and shapes!

  4. So cute Liz! I bet they look adorable in her room. I would love to see more pics of her room too, as I'm sure its beautiful.
