I have had a project bookmarked for quite some time that I wanted to do.  I also had a canvas I made for summertime that I was never very happy with so I peeled off the vinyl lettering and repurposed the canvas in to something new.

Here is the inspiration piece from
 V and Co.

Here is the summertime canvas BEFORE...

And here is what I ended up with.

First I peeled off the old lettering then I mixed some beige paint with some dark brown paint to give it a textured look.

I cut out different foilage and flowers from some vinyl on my Silhouette

And began placing the vinyl on the canvas until I was happy with it.

This is what I ended up with but wasn't quite in love with it.

So I added this cute saying.  I have a friend who has been under the weather for awhile, I thought maybe she would like to have it.   Shhhhhh, don't tell her.

I'm in love!!!!
That is darling. You are so creative. Way to repurpose! I didn't know you could do that with canvas, obviously I'm not much of a crafter.
