I made this gift for my in-laws. This is a picture of the grandchildren together on our summer vacation. I used my My Memories Suite software to design the layout and then added the pictures and a quote I found about grandchildren, "The joy of grandchildren is measured in the heart." I printed this up and then gathered the rest of the supplies.
What I used:
1 8 x 10 canvas
champagne colored paint
What I did:
I had my helper coat the canvas with the mod podge:
Then carefully placed the picture on top and mod podged right over it:
I painted the sides and the parts of the canvas that were visible with a paint color that blended in nicely. Let it dry and then found a cute little easel to display it on.
This was so easy and so fun! I decided to make teacher gifts too - I bought much smaller canvases and I am turning them into ornaments. Right now I have them drying but as soon as they are done I will have a post for you.
