Altered Canvas

I have wanted to make an altered canvas for several months, and finally got motivated this week to make one as a gift for my daughter-in-law's birthday. Megan turned 21 on November 30!

My inspiration for this project came from this blog. Amanda Muirhead is a design team member for Pink Paislee, one of my favorite scrapbook companies.I began by spraying the canvas with Black Cherry Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.I used Pink Paislee rub-ons, glittered alphabet letters, border sticker, artisan tape, and pleated ribbon. My background papers are from Fancy Pants Roadshow collection and Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters collection. The black lace and rhinestones and pearls are from Prima. Flowers are from Prima and Kaisercraft. Just click on the photos to enlarge them.I'm pretty pleased with my first altered canvas project, and I hope Megan enjoys it! Happy Birthday, Megan!
