First Dance

So I'm taking a break from Baby-land for a few days and wanted to make something totally different.
On Pinterest lately, I've seen a lot of wrapped canvases with pictures of couples accompanied by the lyrics to their "First Dance" song.  They are absolutely gorgeous... and a lot of times crazy expensive.  I figured I could make my own.

 My husband and I didn't dance at our wedding reception, but his brother and his wife did.  Jessica (Green PB&Js) has been crafting up a storm lately and made Parker the most wonderful Wizard of Oz Wall Plaque that is going to be perfect hanging in her room.  I wanted to make her something in return, and I knew she'd love something like this.

I edited a photo from their wedding and got it printed.  I used spray adhesive to attatch it to a canvas.  Then I used brown paint to "distress" the edges and cover the sides of the canvas.  Their first dance was to "Your Song" by Elton John.


I really like how it turned out, and hopefully she does, too!
