Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts

Horray! I can finally post my second-ever mixed media project!!  I'm still learning A LOT about this 'craft' but am having some fun!

Here is a canvas I made for my friend's Cindy and Jill.  They have HUGE hearts when it comes to animals. They have six Yorkies.........yes SIX........but 3 of them are special needs - so, it's not like they are just hoarding dogs (LOL)

Two year's ago, Cindy gave me this birthday card:

I thought it was the cutest thing and held on to it because it would be an easy project to recreate.  Well, when I was thinking of what kind of MM project to make.......I came across the card and used it as my inspiration.

Since I don't know how to 'draw' very well, I took apart the card and traced it on some MME patterned paper.  Then from there, I cut it down to size to fit the canvas.

Then I went to town on painting, decoupaging, stamping, doodling, gluing, rubbing and everything else that goes along with this new found 'messy' medium!

I gave this to them on Christmas!  So, I'm hoping they liked it.  Dogs DO leave pawprints on your heart and HOLES in your WALLET too!!!!!!!

Have a great day!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
