I decided to add a little bling and went through my scrapbooking supplies and found some specialty brads. They work great on canvas. Just cut a tiny spot, insert brad, and spread the back open. I chose to fill in background with black
and painted the sides of the canvas with black. I wanted to add a word so Bloom seemed appropriate. I really enjoyed making this and will make many more. I have made black and white doodle fabric and dyed with Rit dye. As of right now, I found an old cabinet door, painted it white, and doodling it in a permanent black marker. I will leave this one black and white. Will blog about it when completed.
ALSO, I have quite a bit of OLD scrapbooking supplies and decided to go through them and recycle them in some way. I got my husband to make me a picture frame out of some of his scrap wood. I then painted and distressed it. In my cache of supplies I found rub-ons and stickers and some really pretty paper. I cut the paper and affixed it to a piece of foam board leftover from another project and proceeded to "decorate". I added sticker quotes and glued on buttons (another of my favorites) for some added dimension. Here is my finished project . . .
