Sooo....I got this really cool Star Wars themed paper, chipboard and brads because apparently the discontinued sad. Anyway...Ethan's bedding is Star Wars and I decided to make him some wall art. I have many canvases so I thought that I would make this cute little individual canvas pieces....turned out pretty cute! But then I thought that I would really like it to be one piece of art....soooo....I painted a 16x20 piece of canvas black and sprinkled it with Prisma glitter (kinda like the Milky Way but not really because this is another galaxy far far away) while the paint was still wet. Then I used some silver paint and just splattered the canvas with it to give a stars and orbit feel to it....okay, I put that by a fan to dry and said to myself, "self, you need to use some homemade glimmer mist just to add that little Queen of Bling touch"

So, I listened to self and spritzed the whole canvas in gold.

Next it was on to adding the smaller canvases to the large where did I put that super tacky pink tape...not to be, I had this super industrial, super strong, heavy duty adhesive....worked! This will never fall apart!!!!!

OH WOW!!! Ethan is going to LOVE this thing! The sparkles and layered canvases are perfect. Love the sanding!

Now you have to tell me where you found this Star Wars stuff because I really need some. I have never seen the stickers, chipboard or papers around here.
