Trying to catch up for christmas.....with a canvas

Having flu 2 weeks before christmas is not to be recommended......not feeling well enough to get out of bed for 2 days 2 weeks before christmas is not to be recommended......feeling exhausted for a further 3 days is not to be recommended.....so now I'm trying to catch up.....thank goodness all my christmas cards were already made!! 
I saw a handmade canvas here on Pinterest......and wanted to make something similar of the littlies for S.
I used a large canvas and 3 small ones......the large one was painted off-white with black round the sides.....and the small ones just black.....the photos were stuck on.....and then the small canvases attached to the large one......with a heat gun.....I'm just hoping they stay attached!!!
Final addition was the words....from a variety of sticker sheets.....not quite sure why the camera thinks 'giggle' isn't black!!
Now just hoping she likes it.

I'm sure S will love it. Is 'giggle' a very glossy black? Sometimes the reflected light changes the colour of things.

That is so cute!! I'm sure she'll like it. Hope you are feeling better - I had the flu right before Christmas last year, no FUN at all. Sending prayers for that you're healthy & well for a FUN Christmas week!

It's wonderful, Jacky! Such a nice idea and a neat job.....I love using hot glue guns, they are an amazing crafty invention and I am sure these will stay put! I hope you are soon fully recovered from the dreaded flu.
Happy weekend.
