I made a wall hanging for my boyfriend's daughter who has a birthday coming up.  She has a husky puppy who I took some pictures of recently.  For this project, I was out of my comfort zone since I usually make cards.  I matted the picture like I usually do with cardstock.  I found a Plaid sticker stencil to put "ECHO" (the pup's name) in the corner and then sprayed the canvas with Ranger Meadow spray and peeled off the stencil.  I bought a dog collar and put a charm on it and put it on with glue dots. The charm has a rhinestone which makes it sparkle.  Then attached a Offray ribbon on the top.  I don't think I would pass as being a Tim Holtz, but I had fun.  I did show her a picture, and she said she has a perfect place to hang it.
