Elvis Canvas by Tonya Gibbs

My sister's birthday was this past weekend, and I decided to make her a canvas featuring her cute little Elvis basset hound for her birthday (OK - truthfully there has been some shamelessly begging for a canvas for a while! Lots of hints dropped on Facebook, bantering and teasing.) So that means it was the perfect gift, right? 

Elvis loves to ride around in his little wagon. My sister decorated it all up for the 4th of July parade, and he looks like a king sitting on his thrown. (Fitting for his name ::WINK::) 

Her home is decorated Americana, so I thought Canvas Corp's denim, and 4th of July product lines were perfect for this project! I used Canvas Corp's Denim 12x12 canvas for my base, and the 4th of July Words On White for the rosettes. The Flag and US Constitution were taken from the Freedom Sampler paper.  I accented the sides with the Red Jute Twine from Canvas Corp. 

The hearts were cut from the Sizzix Primitive Heart die, and then Tiny wooden tags that spell out his name were added as the title. 

I know the 4th has come and gone, but it is never too late to scrap those memories.

Thanks for stopping in today, I hope you guys have an awesome weekend.
