"Journey" mini canvas

Greetings friends and happy Friday!
Today I have a sweet little canvas to share with you. It is just 2"x2"! 
These little canvases come in a 2 pack at WalMart with their own little easels. I painted the easel with Liquitex acrylic paint in Unbleached Titanium.
The canvas is covered with vintage tissue paper that had been gifted to me. I made the feather out of regular parchment paper that is used for baking and the bow is made from rafia left over from Christmas wrapping. 
Everything is distressed a bit with Ranger Archival inks in Sepia and Coffee. The key is by Tim Holtz, pearls and ribbon are from the wedding department at Michaels. 
Instead of covering the back as I usually do with paper, I just put pretty washi tape by My Minds Eye from the Indie Chic line all around the exposed wood. 
What do you think, isn't it cute?
I am linking up with the "Layer it on and Share a Word" challenge over at Frilly and Funkie.
Please check out my other pieces by clicking the

Have a great weekend and come back next week for the announcement of the new design team I've joined!

Aw, how sweet is this? I totally adore it. That vintage tissue paper is wonderful and the handmade feather and the raffia are beautiful shabby embellishments. So happy you joined in the fun with us at Frilly & Frilly for this recent challenge.

Hugs,
