Ella & Daphne Mixed Media Canvases (2Crafty DT Reveal - Part 2)

In part 2 of my 2Crafty Chipboard DT reveal, I have 2 more mixed media canvases to share, 
these ones created for my nieces, Ella and Daphne.

Ella loves the colour purple and this canvas is as purple as it can get!

I used some of the pretty Flowers Frames.

As you can see by the image above, 
I used a LOT of different mediums on this canvas, 
giving it a thick pasty feel.

 The Graceful Butterfly is the focal piece and represent lightness and 
all that is sweet and pretty, just like my niece.

Along with the Flowers Frames, I added some more relief with a couple Leafy Swirls.

Again the Dainty Alphabet set was used to spell out the name Ella.
Now on to Daphne's canvas...
Where Ella is all about purple, Daphne is in love with pink.

Again, some Dainty Alphabet to spell out the name.  This set is a definite must-have as 
it comes with multiple letters and can last you many projects.  I also added a piece of the Floral Spray, tucked behind a cluster of flowers and adhered perched two cute metal owls on it.

 I used half of a Jenny's Bracket Frame in one corner of the canvas.

I adore kites and I absolutely wanted to use this one, from the Kites set,
on Daphne's canvas, along with this very fitting quote.

I have so enjoyed creating these canvases, almost as much as layouts and 
2Crafty Chipboard was the perfect add-on embellishments.  
I know that I will make many more.  Plus, they make such nice heartfelt gifts. :)
