Happy Holidays my friends out there in Blogland. As I write this, I am on my way home from the Beehive Bazaar in Provo, Utah with my bestie Celeste and my bestie sister Jeannette. What a fun girl’s night it was. Ya know those nights when you have a billion things to do and you decide to bag it all and have a girl’s night, yea that was tonight. Anyhow, this is a fun craft that you can do in a myriad of ways. I chose to do it like this, using these supplies:
10″ x 10″ canvases
Brown Spray Paint
4 photo collages I made in Photoshop
I made these for my hubby’s office. If you don’t want to fuss with mounting your own pics, check out the Canvas People link on our sidebar and they make BEAUTIFUL canvases that don’t involve you doing anything other than uploading your cute pics. I made these BEFORE I knew about Canvas People and I love to do things like this so here goes.
STEP 1: spray the canvases brown or whatever color you choose. Spray just the edges and sides because the middle will be covered. Spray a light first coat, then do a second coat after about 10 minutes.
STEP 2: Cut out your photos so they are slightly smaller than the canvas. I rounded the corners on some of mine and not on the others, I’m random like that.
STEP 3: Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the canvas and stick the picture on. You don’t even need to let it dry to continue to the next step.
STEP 4: Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge over the top of the photo to put a nice finish on the top. Let dry.
Since Dave’s office isn’t the most glamorous place, I borrowed them back and photographed them on our piano. It’s so fun to go in his office and see these fun pics of our family. You could pretty much do this with any canvas and any picture.
I turned our Christmas Card into a wall hanging. It’s nice to use things we design for more than one purpose.
I have use the Parisian Flair Alphabet (“W” below) from Rhonna Farrer for just about everything if you couldn’t tell. I love the one of Q eating Dave’s face.
We are also excited for Crafting Chicks Jamie to be posting on REBECCA COOPER’s blog SIMPLE AS THAT today.
Merry Christmas to ALL and to ALL a Good Night.
