Altered Canvases

I got these white canvases from Michaels a few weeks ago.  They were really cheap, like $2.00 a piece.  I painted them and then used my LSG Starburst Stains to glam them up a bit.  The first canvas is for my classroom.  I don't have anything to hang on my wreath hanger for May, so I thought I would create something. 

I painted the canvas with Calypso Blue paint by FolkArt and then sprayed it with LSG Dark Chocolate Truffle.  The paper collection is Stella Rose - Gertie by My Mind's Eye, my current favorite!  I got the bingo card at a flea market a few weeks back with my brother.  I got a bundle of them for $5.00.  I love how big they are.  The floral spray is from a clearance bin at JoAnn's.  The large red flower and burlap leaves are by Prima and the other flowers are from I Am Roses.  

I created a second canvas for my Mom.  She has lots of blue and white birdcages in her office, so I used that as my inspiration.  The Tradewinds matstack by DCWV was a perfect match.

I painted the canvas with linen paint and then sprayed it with LSG Dark Chocolate Truffle.  The flowers are from I Am Roses and Prima.  I used my Martha Stewart Oak Leaf punch to fill in around the flower cluster. 

 The bird feather is by K&Company.  I love how it turned out.  I can't wait to give it to my Mom!

  1. Mom's canvas looks really nice. The Emily Dickinson quote makes it feel complete, too. She was so weird but in such a beautiful kind of quaint way....? It has good balance, too.
