This is a canvas you can make in a few hours (including drying time).
Materials - photograph, mica tiles, gold leaf (or other sparkly material), text (stickers, printed text, etc), tiles (or other embellishments), paint, glue
Step 1: Paint the canvas background with gesso and other acrylic paints. Leave to dry.
Step 2: Add your photograph (mounted, or edge with paint or a Krylon pen - example below).
Step 3: Add your background text. I used baby-oriented stickers. You can see that I also painted over them, so some of the words are clear, and others are semi-transparent. Then I added some gold leaf on top.
