Paint Your Canvas - Dreams Into Plans {Lil' Inker Designs}

Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker March Release Blog Hop! If you're just joining us, head to the Lil' Inker blog to start at the beginning!

I'm pretty excited about today's project. This was such fun to create. This little canvas is a die, people! A quick pass through the die-cutting machine, and you'll have it together in no time. 
For today's project, I die cut my canvas from chalkboard patterned paper. Then I embossed the sentiment (from Paint Your Canvas) in white. Easy peasy, and I love the chalky look! I added a die-cut flower to as a detail, and it was DONE. Striking and simple - I love it when that happens!

And the best part, this adorable mini easel is on also for sale at the Lil' Inker Designs shop! I think the easel and canvas idea will be fun for so many projects. My kids are going to have a BLAST creating "fancy" works of art. And what about holiday decor?! A mini easel with a seasonal creation? What about an art party, and all the guests create a mini canvas, and take home a matching easel for it?! (And at $2 a pop, how can you resist!?) Too fun! I'm excited!!!

Don't forget to comment during each day's hop, as a lucky winner from each day will enjoy a $15 Lil' Inker Designs store credit! Thanks so much for coming by today, and for participating in our hop! xoxox
