Dressing up a Dollar Store Find and a Canvas!

Canvases seem to be my project of choice these days...they make me feel like an artist, they are "usable" in that you can hang them up and in this case they make the perfect gift. One of my dear friends birthday's is this month and she is going to be starting a cafe soon. I decided to make her a canvas for her soon to be cafe.

It is a large 12x12 canvas. I cut out the mug by hand and then added lot of texture and definition. A Sleek Strip of Bling is the perfect touch.

I sprinkled Baby Bling White Pearls in the coffee foam...almost looks real. Light modeling paste mixed with paint really added texture and it gave a delish look!

These great Classy Corners really finish off the canvas.

A few tri-dots of Baby LeCreme Pearls accented the title.

I also picked up this cute envelope holder at the dollar store... cute, but could be cuter.

Now with just a few products, we could dress this up for sure! 

This is so much cuter, don't you think?

Up close and personal...

I am much happier having this sit on my desk.
