Miss Alaina Joy. How many of you remember this song from your childhood? So appropriate for this young lady who brings such joy to our hearts. 
You'll find the instructions below for how I created this cardboard canvas.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspiration

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing some more gorgeous Backyard Blossoms from Heartfelt Creations. It has been so good to work with these beautiful blossoms. I can hardly wait till our flowers start blooming; the irises and peonies are full of buds.
Don't you just love these gorgeous colors? So summery! I've started using watercolor pencils; I love how the colors blend. These flowers are very versatile; you can leave them flat or shape them and make them more dimensional. I die cut the flower from craft foam but only used it under the stem and leaves. I used the flower shaping tool to cup the flower heads and then added pop dots in the center to raise them up.
