Unicorn Canvas Art Knock Off from Rosenberry Rooms

Rosenberry Rooms Oopsey Daisy Knock Off
Unicorn Art for Girls Room

My new friend and neighbor redid her daughter's room this weekend while she was with her grandma to surprise her.  Her daughter really likes unicorns and so she found this unicorn art that she really liked on Rosenberry Rooms 


I already had a 16 x 16 canvas on hand so I just had her pick out the tissue paper, cardstock and buttons she wanted me to use.  She also brought the funnies from the newspaper to use as the unicorn's mane, (her daughter loves to read the funnies) and the original unicorn artwork appears to be a page out of a phone book or something like that.  Here is my customized knock off version of the Rosenberry Room's Oopsey Daisy Fine Art for Kids Line.  I used yellow acrylic paint, modge podge, blue ink, glitter and hot glue for the buttons....
 

I added a bit of glitter here and there to bling it up a bit

I love the buttons she picked out for the Unicorn's Eyes

Check out the funnies....I love that feature







And when my 4 yo daughter saw me finishing this up, she begged to do one too.  We had these smaller canvases that she had previously painted on in her room that were just muddled paint colors so we added to that and together we made this one for her room and have another canvas she can't wait to make another one on...she had so much fun cutting pieces of paper and ribbons and painting on the modgepodge, dumping on the glitter...I helped very little...I got in trouble if I did any helping without her instruction! lol I actually really loved how she cut out diamonds with the blue paper and said they were stars and then made them sparkle with the glitter.....we haven't really done artwork together like this before and it was so fun to watch her mind work as it evolved.




Come back tomorrow to check out an awesome new giveaway!

Thanks! I love how this Unicorn art is not too cheesy/babyish either like other unicorn pictures out there

I think if I were Maria Carluccio I would have been upset that you did not give me credit for the original artwork. Please be aware of copyright infringement in your future posts.
