hickory dickory dock!

this week authentique paper and basically bare are having a little get-together. i received some really whimsical kits from basically bare and was immediately inspired to create a special nursery canvas.

i started with a 9x12 canvas board and painted the edges with brown acrylic. then i tore and roughed up a sheet from authentique's "lively" collection and glued it in place.

the clock and owl are kits from basically bare. i used glue&seal to adhere papers to the bare pieces, then sanded the edges. a little bling and "hootie" the owl is ready to sigh, "there he goes".

i have lots of chipboard letters that belong to different paper collections, none of which matched the papers. so i chose the letters for the title, painted them all with brown acrylic and then flocked them with brown "sparkly fluff" from the craft lounge.

there goes that mouse again...
i used a piece from basically bare's flower kit to create the mouse. a googly eye and a curly wire tail and he's off and running.

thanks for stopping by the caravan today and be sure to stop by again!
