Canvases

I made these canvases for Mother's Day Gifts this year.  I purchased the 8x8 white canvases at Hobby Lobby and used acrylic black paint to coat them.  The smaller canvases were also purchased at Hobby Lobby in a 6 pack.  I printed out pictures of me and my sisters and then used Scrapbook Factory Software to make the family title and printed it out also.  I attached those to the smaller canvases with Mod Podge and used a coat over them to seal the picture also.  Once they were dry, I used hot glue to attach the smaller canvases to the larger canvas.

I also made these smaller canvases that are sized 6x6 for one of my grandmothers and for my sister.  For these, I printed a picture out using a polaroid frame background and used Mod Podge to attach the pictures and seal them.  I love how it looks like a large polaroid picture.
