I don't know about you, but I LOVE photo canvases! I can't get enough of them!
I not only love the look of the photo without a frame, but I also love how easy they are to hang. There is no hassle with finding matching/coordinating frames or even nails (they are so light you can hang them with a simple tack!).
I have ordered several canvases online for myself and for gifts, but they can be a bit pricey. I really wanted to do a canvas collage for the wall with a group picture of all of the kids plus an individual shot of each kid, but I didn't want to spend the $$$ to order 5 canvases so I decided to try a DIY project :o)
I LOVE how it turned out!!!
The process was simple and pretty quick!
I started by painting the sides of the canvas and the edge of the front of the canvas black.
After the paint dried, I applied a layer of Modge Podge to the front of the canvas and carefully
placed the photo on the canvas.
Let the canvas dry completely and then apply a layer of Modge Podge to the top of your picture. If you don't wait until it is dry, your picture will wrinkle.
After the top layer of Modge Podge is dry, you can use a fingernail file to help "blend" the edge of the picture to the canvas. That part is optional :o)
Of course, Jonah fell a couple days before and had quite a boo boo on his forehead...thank goodness for Photoshop :o) Ha!
I can't wait to do more!!
