Wedding Present

A few weeks ago my colleagues asked me if I would be willing to make a wedding present for one of our colleagues who was getting married. 

Since the happy couple likes the colour blue, the painting should be done in blue. Every colleague was given a small piece of blue paper on which to write a thought, wish, message for the happy couple. 

In the meantime, I went and bought a canvas. A Big Canvas! I the store I thought: well, that's a good size.
But when I came home that thought was replaced by: I need another house...

Fortunately, with a bit of pushing around the canvas could be put on my desk and I got to work. 
Basic Grey Periphery Paper, acrylic paints, chipboard, ribbon, glitter glue, embossing powders, gesso, stamps, the whole shebang! 

This is how it turned out.

size? 110 cm x 75 cm!!!

Dylusions spray paint white linen for the word "LOVE".

lots of chipboard hearts which my friend cut with a Big Shot (a machine still on my wish list)

My Silhouette Cameo cut out the swirl.

frilly ribbon, yay!

inspirational pieces of my colleagues.

tiny bell that really makes a small sound when the wind blows past it.

 Thank you for looking!
