Canvas Art

2 YEARS AGO........... 
I bought a package of canvases.  My husband was threatening to throw them out, if I didn't do something with them! So.... I was at Faithful Scrapper and Amy mentioned she was going to do something fun with a canvas, so I brought my canvas up the next day at lunch! I started by painting the entire canvas a dark brown, then I stenciled on a cute design with gold metallic paint.  We used her Cricut to cut out the letters of my last name and est. 2010-our anniversary year.  So I Modge Podged the letters on!  I wanted to add a little more detail, so I hot glued lace onto the bottom of my canvas! The last thing I did was use these flowers that Jennifer Sloane at Live.Teach.Create cut out with her cricut.  She used pages from an old book! We sprayed the flowers down with *Glimmer Mist* then let them dry.  After the flowers dried, I crumbled them up, and then un-crumbled and layered 3 on top of each other, gluing one on top of the next..... then embellished the center with a button and glued them in place!  It was such a fun project, that I could not wait to start the next one............(see below)!!!!!

*here's an up close pic of the flowers! Aren't they adorable!

This is the next canvas I made.......... the next day!
I think I'm addicted.......
This is our little cousin Brianna! She just turned 9 and this was her birthday present! 
I think she loved it......
