Glam Gams

I have been really into sequins lately. I just can't seem to get enough. I have been attaching them to all sorts of things. I'm currently working in a DIY sequin hat post, have started embroidering sequin patches for fun, and of course, I adorned these fishnet tights with them. Sequins are such a unique way to add a bit of fun and energy to your favorite clothes, accessories, and craft projects! I always recommend sewing sequins on for a sturdy hold, but using a strong fabric/craft glue works as well. I used glue on this pair of stockings because I knew I would only be wearing them a couple times here and there, and am not too concerned with them being snagged and falling off. 

Let me know what you think about this crazy pair of legs I have going on in this post. Would you ever wear sequins tights like these?

Pretty Pink House of Dreams

I am always on the hunt for bright colorful buildings and walls around town. They always brighten my day, and are the perfect backdrops to use for photos. Luckily, the little town I live in prides itself on street art, and most of the original Pacific NW houses are usually painted in bold flashy colors. 
I've passed this vintage-house-turned-salon many times, and have always admired it's structure and landscaping, but it wasn't until they gave in a pretty pink makeover that  I really feel in love. Pink, purple, and red are some of my favorites colors, and the combination of all three together is just pure joy to my eyes. 
Every detail of this place is so amazing. From the painted heart shutters, to the garden full of matching flowers, there is not one thing I don't find magical. I even got to see humming birds flying around, which is always an added bonus for me! 
This was the perfect place to come to cheer myself up on a gloomy summer day (I mean, did you see how dreary the sky looks in these pictures?) It was also the perfect backdrop for my new french bulldog printed dress and donut clutch! I can't wait to pass by this little place again.

Dress: Iya
Clutch: Asos

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! Today is usually a low key day for me, but this year I have my family visiting, which means a decorated house, lots of homemade food, and playing around with sparklers and smoke balls. I'm also a huge workaholic that always has to stay busy, so it's nice to take a few days off to enjoy life and the summer heat. How are you spending your July 4th holiday? Comment below and let me know if you have any traditions.

Wear The Canvas on Instagram

It may come as no surprise that a lot of bloggers have started using Instagram as a form of micro blogging lately. I know that I have found myself doing just that. For some reason Instagram is just an easier way to tell the story I want to tell, share images of my life, and connect with people. I have been blogging on and off for 5 years, and have never connected with as many people through my blog as I have with my Instagram account. It has also has been helping me a lot with my photography skills, which is something I am always striving to make better. 

If you like to see pictures of bright and fun things, get product sneak peeks, or just really like confetti, I highly recommend following me! You can find me on IG under the name @wearthecanvas . And if you decide to check out my feed, or follow along, make sure to not be shy and say 'hi!"

National Doughnut Day 2015

Happy National Doughnut Day! Today just happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Did you know that I absolutely love doughnuts? I'm also really happy that they are very trendy right now because that means I never have to feel bad for indulging in one!
Because today is about celebrating doughnuts, I decided to make a doughnut pinata! I've had this really strange urge to make a pinata lately, and what better shape to make than a fat, colorful doughnut?! There was definitely a learning curve for me, and I am a little sad that I didn't have any pink paper on hand to make pink "frosting," but I actually love how it turned out!
How are you celebrating today? Are you going to eat a ton of doughnuts? Maybe you'll wear your favorite doughnut themed piece of clothing? Comment below and let me know!

Coral Florals

I have been kind of absent from blogging lately, due to creating new items for my store relaunch. And even tho I'm really excited to finally get my new, handmade products up, I really just can't wait to focus more time and attention on blogging. I wanted to share this floral crown I created for a boho photo shoot I'm styling tomorrow. I have never made a floral crown with silk flowers, and I am really happy how it turned out. Plus, it was way easier to make than if I were using fresh flowers, or paper ones I created myself. 
I used the extra flowers to form a backdrop on the wall. It's so dreamy and different, I wish I could leave it up all year long. It also got me thinking about how this would be a fun and uncomplicated way to spruce up a wall, and create a backdrop for parties or event. All you need is flowers, washi tape, and scissors! Now, I  want to throw a party and due it all over again!

Happy Cinco de Mayo 2015

Happy Cinco de Mayo party people! I hope your day is one giant fiesta! I made these shorts especially for today, because I just love dressing festive for different holidays. I really wanted to make  something with an old Mexican poncho, and thought shorts would be fun! Turns out I was right!

DIY Confetti Nails

Hey lovelies! I have a question for you. Does this confetti look familiar? That's right, it's the same from my DIY confetti post I did last month! Well, I thought that I would put it to use, and give myself a fresh new mani. You can create this look too, it's so simple and fun! Read on...
-Clear nail polish
-White nail polish
-Small paper confetti

Paint a base layer on your nails with the clear coat. When that is dry, paint on the white color. 
Add a tiny drop of clear polish to one end of the toothpick. Then, quickly pick up a small piece of confetti with the toothpick and place it on to your nails. Use the other end of the toothpick (that is dry) to tap down the confetti, and spread the clear polish underneath. Let the confetti dry for a few minutes, then add one or two clear top coats.
This manicure is pretty awesome, especially since you can match your nails to pretty much any party theme that you like! I chose to match mine to this tassel garland I made. What do you think?

p.s. Let me know if you try this look out! You can send me photo, tag me @wearthecanvas on Instagram and/or Facebook, and don't forget to use #wearthecraft when posting your pics!
