Life and Live DIY Canvas
Transform a favorite photo into a brand new piece of DIY wall art with some serious attitude.
We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
In the Designer's Words: "This is " All about me" altered canvas made with new Plaid Mixed Media paints and mists and Plaid Mod Podge as the texture paste. I never scrap myself, but this was a good photo (actually one over another photos) and it shows my tavel mood and my favorite colors."
Make some DIY wall art that you can hang with pride when you check out this mixed media craft idea. The Life and Live DIY Canvas is a craft project idea that combines a canvas with scrapbooking techniques and supplies to make an unlikely picture frame. If you have a photo with a ton of attitude that you really want to show off, add it to projects like this to add as much personality to the piece than is in the picture. This canvas art idea would look lovely in a home office or a teen’s bedroom.
