Valentine Mini Canvas With Quiver and Arrows

This girl is a blogger in the making and no mistake.

My daughter recently started a notebook entitled “Blue, Purple, and Scarlett” in which she is compiling ideas for my blog.

Is that cool or what? Guess I can sit back and relax now that I have a project manager.

She showed me one of her ideas and ‘suggested’ I make it right away.

She drew a tiny quiver full of arrows with the words:  be brave.

That’s my girl. 

I took a mini canvas and covered it with Fiber Paste and sprinkled it with glitter just like I did with my other Mini Canvases.

A small piece of tea-dyed muslin was soaked in fabric stiffener and wrapped around a glue stick.

When it was dry it formed the base for the miniature quiver.

For the arrows, tiny arrowheads and…whatever the things are on the other ends… were made from paper clay and stuck onto the ends of toothpicks.

Red paint!

A few stitches to hold the quiver together.

A heart of paper clay stamped with handwriting.

More red paint!

The words were printed out using “Courier New” font.

The quiver was filled up with tiny arrows and one arrow was glued at the bottom.

This one’s for you sweet girl.  I Love You!   ~ Mom
