Julie Walton's altered canvas with the January kit

Julie Walton is our visiting therapist at I AM A Scrapaholic this month - Yeah Julie!
She decided to alter a 12 X 12 canvas with the products in the January kit and it came out AMAZING! She's included step-by-step instructions on how she made this beautiful artwork below if you'd like to create one of your own.

Thanks for your amazing inspiration Julie!!

Close up

12 x 12 canvas
Modge Podge
Paint & Brush

From the January 2009 kit:
Paper – Websters Pages
Cardstock - Core'dinations Cardstock

1. Paint canvas your desired color
2. Crinkle up your chosen paper, tear if desired, flatten paper back out
3. Apply a coat of Modge Podge to the canvas
4. Apply a coat of Modge Podge to the back of your paper
5. Press the paper to the canvas and smooth as best as you can. You do want some dimension so it doesn’t need to be completely flat.
6. When this is dry sand the entire thing to your liking
7. Cover the die cuts by applying adhesive to the front of the diecut, pressing it to the wrong side of the paper you have chosen. Cut around the diecut with an exacto knife. Sand the entire die cut.
8. Apply your photo and the diecuts to the canvas by applying Modge Podge to the backside.
9. Add gems, adhering with Modge Podge.
10. When dry apply a coat of Modge Podge to the entire project
11.Add ribbon when dry.

Hang and enjoy!
