Altered Canvas Art

Val and Kim had a wonderful project idea for us this month. I love to alter things, so this was right up my alley! :) They got this idea from the Hero Arts website, I believe.

We took a 4" x 4" canvas covered wood frame and covered it with the patterned paper of our choice and then layered on some text from an old book, white embossed a flourish and added lots of other embellishments inclusing this gorgeous white embossed lace flower that I cut out to make this pretty wall art. Now, I need to find the perfect place to hang my creation...

Here's a bit of an angle to show you the dimension of the project and you can better see the colour of the buttons in this picture.
Thanks so much for doing this with us, I look forward to making more of these in the future. :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
