Horse Silhouette Canvas3:53 PM
A quick shout out to the recipient of the horse silhouette canvas... my dear friend Jillian! Happy Birthday! Hope it's a great one! Well anyway, she's such a sweet nice girl and a great friend so I felt she needed a great gift. She's a fellow horse lover so I figured she needed something that had to do with horses. Oh did I mention I got a job working at a barn? oh and a job working as a tutor?
I'm 15 and already have 2 jobs. Oh dear. Anyway...
I started by printing out a horse silhouette I found online and finding a quote. I chose "Horses lend us the wings we lack." since she obviously likes horses. I laid it all out on my canvas, finally finding a way that I liked it. I used freezer paper and an exact-o knife to cut out my "stencil" I cut out some of the words but ended up getting bored and figured I'd do it later.
I cut out the horse head and ended up with this as my mane. I figured I could just wing it later since this was a total mess.
I personally think it turned out really great!
Oh and stay tuned everyone! I have a BUNCH of projects coming up! Let's just say we spent over $70 dollars at Jo Ann's the other day. That includes coupons and sales. I don't want to know what it would have been without that. *gasp*
I have three skirts, several bags, and a whole basement redo in the works.
