A Canvas for Millie!

  Good evening Lovelies! Well today was officially our last day with Millie as a family! Tomorrow she meets her new Mummy and Daddy for the first time, so things change tomorrow! We had a lovely day at home, baking cookies for her new Mummy and Daddy, the neighbours kids came over to play and say goodbye! All very very sad, my hubby and I have been sitting bawling our eyes out most of the evening, this is the hardest part of being Foster carer's.

I've had a go at doing a Canvas, it's my very first time and I have to say I'm pretty chuffed with it! I have of course made it for Millie's new bedroom, which they have decorated in lilac!

It's only about 5"x3" I bought a pack of 4 for £2.99 a few months ago, not really knowing why I bought them? But thought they were a bargain, I'm soooo glad I did now! Could be another obsession lol? Anyway I started by using texture paste through a Dylusions stencil, I coloured it and all the flowers and butterflies with Pan Pastels! I hope you like it? Thank you for taking the time to visit, I'm entering it into http://panpasteluk.blogspot.co.uk/?m=0

I absolutely love it and I'm sure that Millie does too.

You've picked a tough thing with fostering, but it's a very worthwhile one and must be so rewarding knowing you're doing what you can to help these kids out.
