This weekend I was anything BUT productive however, I did complete my first pinterest project and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!!! I got the idea inspiration from the THIS BLOG that i found through Pinterest. I've been holding on to this idea for quite some time as I am a TOTAL procrastinator. Having to do everything myself with a toddler and run our house, I have neither the energy nor the time for crafts. Saturday afternoon was a different story and when my cleaning bug left and my artsy bug came out, i fed it!
I only needed a few things:
1) Stretched canvas (i chose a 16x20)
2) Mod Podge Canvas
4) picture blow up to cover your canvas
5) scrap book paper
6) Acrylic paint
|Here's my canvas, photo, and scrapbook paper|
|Blown up photo that i got from Wal-Mart for $12|
|scrap book paper on the sides is done first i forgot to photo this part of the project|
|This finished project!!! I love the way it turned out!!!! 16x20 looked so big in the package but not on our wall :) The hubby loved it too.|
You can also do acrylic paint on the sides once everything is dried to mesh the gaps from the paper and the photo but mine fit perfectly that i didn't need any but with only a photo and not the wording i would do this! The next time i do this, i might try a larger photo to STRETCH it over the sides instead of the scrap book paper. While i liked the look of it i didn't like it that it didn't fit my large canvas with one strip i had to cut two.
