Vintage/Modern photo canvas project.. So cute!!

It feels so good to create projects again!
I am oficially in my second trimester and happy! Let me just tell you the first three months....WOW... I was seriously in bed all day; tired, sleepy, cramps, sick... whew... glad Im over that! I did not have strength to create anything! I really didn't feel like doing anything but sleep! If you've been pregnant, did you ever feel like this? or did it just happen to me?
So im 4 months and 2 days! :) but whos counting really.. ha...ha.. So weird, my belly popped out exactly at 4 months. One day, I just woke up and saw my belly! I love this new experience that Im going through and cant wait to meet my baby.
Anyways, I wanted to share this super cute canvas project I finished today. It does take a while to complete but worth it! I love the vintage/modern look of it.
I made this project using an 8 X 10 canvas and a picture of my niece I took of her on Easter. I made it using a cool transfer technique using mod podge. I absolutely love how it turned out. I must say, its a little messy but the results are wonderful.
I used a wash-out technique to give it an antique look which I love. To give it a modern look I used some swirl designs, pink crystals and tulle bow!
I really love they way it turned out so I might be making a few more.
Enjoy the pictures of my project!
Also, visit my shop and check out new items Ive listed!

Oh my goodness, I love it!! What mod podge technique did you use? A tutorial would be nice :)I have 4 kids and I was that sick with all of them, its normal. Now the fun begins, when the baby starts moving and the anticipation will get unbearable.
