My Project For The Day


I have been wanting to make something that I could display pictures of all of my grandchildren. This happens to be a 12x24 artists canvas with six 3x3 small artist canvases glued down. I Mod Podged pictures of my grandchildren that I printed off of the computer onto card stock. Lettering is made from vinyl. I painted the large canvas Apple Barrel #2609 goose feather. The small canvases are painted black before glueing down the photos. I also rubbed a black stain around the edges of the large canvas to give it an aged look. I still need to buy some wide black ribbon to attach to the back to hang it with.
