A Canvas for Dylan and Daisy

My sister asked me to make a canvas each for her friend Geraldine's children Dylan and Daisy.
Here is what I came up with. I started with two 12" x 10" canvases, and painted them ivory, when dry I inked the edges.

They both use papers from the same four collections, The Farm House Company, Basic Grey Basics, Scenic Route and Simple Stories Bingo Cards.

I made a group of three pinwheels on Daisy's canvas and three rosettes on Dylan's. The pinwheels were cut using the Cricut and the 3D Pinwheel Cartridge. The rosettes were cut by hand using various widths of 12" strips. I tied each button with coloured twine.

I varied the sizes and double sided patterned papers. I added brads to the centre of each pinwheel and buttons to the rosettes. 

I cut both names using the Cricut and the Storybook cartridge with a shadow, then I glossed the letters with Glossy Accents.

I added a charm with blue twine to the base of Daisy's photo...

...and a Micky Mouse paperclip with bunting for Dylan.
The bunting was made with chipboard flags covered with paper and inked. they were joined with red twine.

 I added a spiral heart paperclip to Daisy's canvas. 
There is also some tiny scraps of Kaiser Crafts Sweet Nothings paper here, edged with a Martha Stewart punch and as a mat for the photo. 

This also shows the bingo card from Simple Stories.

I added a tiny pair of chipboard Wellies to Daisy's canvas painted and inked.

I hope my sister, her friend and Daisy and Dylan like the canvas Christmas gifts. 
I had fun making them.
Thanks for Looking.
