BABY SCAN MINI CANVAS



...no one ever became poor by giving...
-Anne Frank-


...hello everyone today I'm sharing with you the mini canvas my Daughter had asked me to make showing her first scan photo...


...the photo's don't do this canvas justice...I took inspiration from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities Book 1, it's done on memory as I don't have the book...


...the letters are a mixture of gold card & chipboard...


...a pure white heart some buttons & a kiss...

...Dani & Darren loVed it...
...thanks for dropping by today...

  2. Oh wow! This is adorable. I think it's very important to show baby's first photo. I love that you made it especially for your daughter and the baby. I really like the detail you used in securing the buttons with what looks like a bit of burlap. Lovely.
