the 2012 theme for our LDS young women :)
This is a super cute, easy little craft tutorial you can use for gifts... or whatever!
I made these to use as our birthday gifts for all our young women this year -
they seem to really like them... so read on if you'd like to learn how to make them!
First I used a 4x4 stretched canvas...
used Tulip dimensional slick paint to "write" the word SHINE!...
and glued a small wooden sun to the canvas (you could easily freehand a sun also)
*note: I tried using puffy paint also, and the slick version was much easier
After doing the same thing to multiple canvases,
I chose several pastel colors and painted over each canvas.
(and yes, we eat a lot of garbanzo and black beans, thank you very much)
I used two coats of paint on each canvas and let dry fully...
Then I painted each canvas with a coat of glossy Mod Podge.
*Note: glossy acrylic spray instead of Mod Podge would also work
"Arise and Shine Forth!"

You girls do indeed SHINE! And we love you :)
