Canvas Project

I am joining the fun over at Strut Your Stuff. Stop by and check out all of the great bloggers that are sharing fabulous is so inspiring.
I came across a blog awhile back (called Treasury of Memories) and found some great ideas usuing painters canvases. I love the idea of using so many different mediums to create ways to display photos. By using canvases, paint, scrapbook paper and embellishment and then adding vinyl lettering the possibilites are endless. There are so many really adorble embellishments that are used in scrapbooking that it only seemed natural to adapt them to other projects.

For this project I started out by paint the canvas an antique white. I then cut a piece of foam core that I painted black, glued down some scrapbook paper and then Mod Podged a photo that I printed off of my computer onto cardstock. I then added some ribbon to the left side of the photo and added a cute little metal flower.

Next I glued the foam core piece to the canvas.

I then cut some vinyl lettering and applied it directly to the canvas. To finish it off I wrapped the same ribbon I used above horizontally around the canvas and added a cute little buckle.

I also have joined the linky party at Life as Lori. Great stuff over there, check it out by clicking on icon below
