Boys will be boys!

Back again already!  This time for my Octopode Factory creation where the challenge this week is "boys will be boys".  Not a card this time but a canvas!  I love doing canvas art as you can so easily paint over it if it goes the wrong way - ideal for someone who can't always make their mind up easily.
The digi used is called "The Kid" available here and I just thought with that cute look, he would easily be able to get himself out of any trouble.
      I painted the background with acrylic paints and then stamped it and grunged it up a bit.  The digi was printed onto cardstock and coloured with my Copics, cut out and stuck to the canvas - ideal for any little boy's room :)

I had fun doing this one and have stocked up on some more cheap canvas from Michaels so watch this space!

I would like to put him in for -

Thanks for calling in today - the weekend starts now !!
