Just for Fun

Hi everyone! I thought I'd post a canvas I've made for my God daughter for Christmas. When she's been here the last few times she's been eyeing up the canvas wall hangings Ive got around the house and I thought I have to make one up for her! And since she's 12 and at that age when....well everything is tough and emotional for a 12 year old girl, I remember..... I wanted to make her something to remind her that being unique is what should be considered "KOOL" not what everyone else says. So, I made her this:
Be Yourself ~ Everyone Else Is Taken
I sure hope she takes it to heart, I think she will....she's such a great kid!
Now what I've done is painted an 8x10 canvas black and then sprayed it with some Lime Green Glimmer Mist. I've added some BG papers and cut the title out with my Slice machine. Ive been watching ALOT of Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas and so was inspired to make a tag for the rest of the saying! LOL I've of course used and EMO, this is Lola, from the Everyday Emo's line! Love her! 
Anyhow! I hope you like, and maybe have time to make one yourslf?!?! 
happy Crafting peeps!

Wow the lime green glimmer mist is gorgeous (have to bag me some of that). this is such a gorgeous canvas and the sentiment behind it is perfect for a 12 year old when it's hard not to follow the crowd, so gorgeous and wonderful x
