Christmas Canvas

Hi there! Sorry it's been a little quite around here. The holidays season is officially kicking my butt! lol..yesterday was Natalie's 2nd birthday and I'm planning her party for this weekend.

((Here's the birthday girl..she loves ketchup! lol))

....Thanksgiving was great..busy, but fun. And my Christmas shopping hasn't even started! yikes! So with all this business I feel like my craft room is just collecting dust right now. Hopefully after the new year I'll get some mojo back..but in the mean time I have been doing some Christmas decorating around the house. I made some easy canvas "paintings" using some EAD Designs vinyl.

This was my first attempt trying something like this....what I did was first cut some vinyl on my Cricut using the KISS settings, then applied the vinyl to the canvas (making sure to remove the negative pieces) and then painted the deers. let them dry and slowly peel off vinyl.

 Something went wrong inbetween painting the deers and peeling off the vinyl...if you look close you can see the paint kinda bleed after peeling off all  the vinyl I had to go back and touch up all the funky spots (being very careful!) the end..I think they came out cute and super afforadable! 
Hope you like 'em! :)
