Altered Canvas

I am entering these projects in the "Inspire Me" challenge at Organized Chaos. It is hilarious that she is the one that "Inspired Me" to do them!! Hahahahaha! Check out her originals here!

I made these altered canvases for some dear little ones!!

I painted 16x20 canvases with a base color and then mod poCheck Spellingdged layers of patterned scrapbook paper for matting pictures or in one case Bible verses. I cut out the names with the Cricut Calligraphy Cartridge (inspiration & inspiration blackout) and the various shapes and sizes of stars with the Plantin Schoolbook cart. I also wrapped grosgrain ribbon around the canvases where the papers met.





To achieve a 3D look, each individual piece was mod podged prior to being mod podged down to the canvas! If that makes sense??!! I curled the ends of the stars with a pencil for more pop.
These were a lot of fun to work on!!

  1. Thanks for entering my "Inspire Me" blog candy challenge!!! I LOVE how your canvases turned out!

    At the current time, you are the only one that has met all the entry requirements, as all others linked so far have not submitted any projects. So, if there aren't any other entries, consider yourself the owner of a brand new CTMH stamp set!!! :)
