Dawn's Canvas Project

 Hello, Memory Bound friends! 
In today's post, I want to share with you a great project Dawn, one of our store owners, created using several small canvases. If you'd like to create a unique and personalized wall decor piece, you should consider a project like this. It's very striking and really makes an impact in a room!

Dawn used small pre-made canvases (in a variety of sizes) for the foundation of her project. She adhered black and white photos from her daughter's recent wedding to most of the canvases, along with some patterned paper and embellishments. Then she hot-glued the canvases together in a circular form -- almost like a wreath -- by overlapping some of the pieces.

Dawn created the letter "J" by cutting it from heavy black chipboard using the Typewriter font from our Accu-Cut die cutting center. She covered the chipboard letter with Glossy Accents to give it a shiny finish. I love how the letter looks!

Dawn used the Documented line to decorate her canvases. The 4x6 text pieces in this line ("These are the Moments...") fit perfectly on the canvases. The muted colors work beautifully with her black and white photos and blend well with the textured canvases. Of course, you could choose any paper line which matches your home decor.

With the holidays coming up, a canvas project like this would make a wonderful gift! If you'd like to make one, stop in and take a look at how Dawn put her project together. We've got everything you need and would love to help you get started! 

Thanks, Dawn, for inspiring us with this beautiful and meaningful project!
