PB Kids {inspired} Easter Wall Decor

Recently, I was browsing through my Pottery Barn Kids catalog and I came across a super cute Easter sign.  I tore that page out and started to gather my supplies!  This sign sells for $49 at Pottery Barn kids, but I made mine for less than $10!!!!!

I had a 16x20 canvas on hand, so I painted it with a shimmery blue paint.  I liked the streaky, distressed look that I got with one coat, so I stuck with it.  I pulled out some Close to my Heart papers in the colors I needed and started browsing my Cricut cartridges for images.  I love that CTMH paper is double sided with patterns, so I can use the subtle "back" side to patterns and get just the right color!

I cut the chick from "Once Upon a Princess" using paper from Zippidee, Splendor and Olivia paper packs.  The egg was cut from Doodlecharms with Sophia paper, then cut in a zig zag pattern to resemble the broken egg.  I cut "Happy" from Celebrate with Flourish from the Sophia paper pack and Easter from Alphalicious in Olivia Paper pack.  I had cut the grass at the bottom from the same Olivia paper pack. 

Normally I would Mod Podge my papers down to the canvas, but I didn't want that look so I used CTMH's Liquid Glass---- those papers are not going anywhere :)

Here's Pottery Barn Kids' version (I used the "egg hunt" one for my inspiration)
