Work It Wednesday

Here's a quick little idea for you all. It's not a new idea, it's a just a great idea and worth repeating. It is Work It Wednesday so here's a fun way to use up your stash.

Decorated canvases make great home decor items. It's really easy to do, you just need a canvas, some scrapbooking supplies, a little imagination, and some sort of adhesive. I love Decoupage so that's what I used.

The one shown above is a quick one I did using alphabet stickers to spell out one of my favorite quotes. Mine is very simple, almost plain but I like it that way. You can make these canvases in all different ways, you can paint them first, junk them up, add photos, buttons, or whatever you'd like.

For those of you coming to the crop we will have some Halloween Canvas kits available for purchase. And, if you aren't coming to the crop, don't worry they will be available for purchase in the store after the crop.

Another idea that was worth repeating. I used the idea after seeing something in the store last year. I had just redecorated my kitchen and needed something that I just couldn't find in stores anywhere I looked. I ended up usnig scrapbooking supplies and making a display that I then asked my husband to frame for me. Voila! A one-of-a-kind decoration that was just exactly what I wanted.

Can't wait to see the kits next week!
