Family Altered Canvas

A few weeks ago I discovered wooden words, covered in colorful prints, in a dollar bin at Michaels. These are a good size and quality to be a focal point on a canvas. My daughter-in-law's mom loves the color green, so that was my choice, a plaid with some green. I got some 12"x12" canvases on sale and painted one navy blue. Two 5"x7" canvas boards were painted green.

I made a flower from Recollections "Floral Embellishments" and adhered each of my items to the navy canvaswith Glossy Accents a product by Inkssentials. My daughter-in-law's mom can adhere any pictures of the family on those two green panels and show off, what a wonderful family we have. I really enjoy finding new ways to use the many diffwerent size canvas that are available. Have fun!
