Mixed Media Mini Canvas!

How has your weekend been? Ours has been very lazy, with lots of movie watching and crafting happening. The kids were out for the day today, at the beach with their grandparents, so I even got some lovely peaceful child free time :)

So as I was saying the other day, Em and I spent Friday night making canvases. I can't believe how much I loved it! So messy, but so fun too :)



I didn't even have to buy anything to make these. I've had the canvases laying around for years, as well as an old pot of Mod Podge, and everything else I've used is actually Kaisercraft. Sure is a different way to use the old scrapping supplies!

Look how teeny this canvas is!...


I made this other one too, which is a bigger size. I'm thinking I might make a set of these to hang up together, all with different little quotes on...


A bit of a size comparison...


I just loved the whole process of making these, and I think I will definitely be making more. I just love how much texture they have! I've got a few scrappy layouts that need finishing off first though, you won't believe it, but I've actually done another two challenges. I don't know what's wrong with me, lol!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Beautiful canvases!! I am just getting into mixed media canvases, I made my first one a few weeks ago. I actually have some friends coming over today to make them. So much fun playing with something new and different.

hey, thanks for stopping by my blog.

your canvases look wonderful. I have been teaching a group of homeschooling kids an art class once a month. We turned old books into our canvases. My goal is to be able to teach them how to do mixed media art one day. :)
