Canvas wall hangings

Hi Everyone

Today, I wanted to share a birthday gift I am giving to a friend.  I have never created anything on canvas but I had seen several videos on YouTube on canvas art and Michaels had a sale so I thought I would give it a try.

I painted each canvas with acrylic gray paint along the edges.  Then I added pattern paper with modge poge to keep it adhered to the canvas.  I used some Prima stamps and Memento tuxedo ink and did some random stamping.  I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and texture paste to place some time pieces randomly on the paper.

On the first canvas, I wove some rose buds along a lattice that I painted first in red acrylic paint, then crackle paint then in gray paint.  I added a fountain with an angel in the center and two little bees at the bottom.  I added two angles on top as well.  Along the left side is a red vine with a large flower at the bottom.  I added a wooden scissor to the top.

On the second canvas I added a little ticket to the right corner and added a wooden scissor on top.  At the lower right is some Prima flowers and a wooden butterfly.  On the upper left are two little angels. Below them is a street light and a street sign that reads Memory Lane.  Under that is a little ticket.  In the center is a Prima frame with paper backing and a little angel on top.

It was fun to create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
