Canvas Decorated Frame

Last Saturday, in the Home Décor class, we played with many different styles - as shown in the photos on our Facebook Page

As part of the class I was teaching Jeanette how to decorate a canvas.  Jeanette decorated a beautiful canvas and I did this little beauty.  I was so pleased with it that I have framed it and it now sits on the dressing table in our new bedroom.


As you would expect, I used our favourite paints - Jo Sonja's.  They were applied in a very unusual way with credit-style cards (old ones of course!).

The base colours were then enhanced with some printing (again using the paints) with various items that were kicking around in the workshop - milk bottle tops, bubble wrap, gauze etc!

Finally a die-cut heart was added.  The heart was cut from a page of an old dictionary.

Now, not wishing to put you all off of your dinner, I was very romantic.  If you look very carefully you can see why I picked this page - a dedication to the man in my life!

I hope, you too like what I have achieved.  If you too would like to have a go at this, check out the Home Décor classes on alternative Wednesday afternoons or, the 2nd Saturday in each month.
