My first scrap canvas

Have you ever tried using your craft skills for home decor? I love to do this. Why not have a try at some scrap canvas.
Simply take any box canvas, you can pick them up at so many places really cheaply. Then paint your background colour in acrylic paint, I used a lighter colour, then the blue and painted a crackle medium over the top.
The photo was mounted on navy cardstock and ripped and chalked the edges. You decorate however you like, ribbons, flowers, brads, accents - you choose. The wording was cut from a Cricut cartridge, I think it was Joys of the Season!
Soon, I'll post the gorgeous "secret" canvas I made with Lindsay Mason - keep tuned in.
