Today I’m sharing this cute little mini canvas with you! This 4×4 natural canvas is from CANVAS CORP BRANDS. They have a variety of sizes of blank canvases, but these little 4x4s are perfect for photos, paints, kids crafts, or home decor! I chose to use this little canvas as a way to showcase one of my daughter’s 9mo photos.
First, I took the little canvas and added some Mod Podge in order to hold some patterned paper I have. After I added the glue and my paper, I added a little more Mod Podge over the paper just to make sure it was securely adhered down.
I used some of this fun woodgrain paper that I grabbed on sale at Hobby Lobby. I tore it to make the edges look worn and tattered. I added some to the bottom of the canvas, a little on the top, and I also made sure to wrap it around the sides.
I also spritzed them with a little IRIDESCENT GOLD GLIMMER MIST for some more added shimmer!
Next, I grabbed my JUTE CORD from CCB, and looped it around several times and then tied it off to create a circle “frame”. I then used some BRUTUS MONROE CRAFT GLUE to glue it down onto my canvas. In order to hold it in place while drying, I set my acrylic stamping block on top.
Next was the fun part- embellishing! I layered my flowers on around my jute frame, and also added a little butterfly that I stamped and embossed on vellum. I used the BRUTUS MONROE BUTTERFLY SENTIMENTS stamp set along with one of their new colored embossing powders- EMERALD. Such a gorgeous color!
I then added my little 2×2 photo, and a clear sticker that reads, “love”.
I really love the soft look of this canvas and how it turned out! I love finding creative ways to display photos. This little canvas is on one of my shelves in my dining room hall!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Until next time,
