Upcycled Canvas with Canvas Corp by Jennifer Priest 13

I bought a set of two gallery stretched canvases in the home decor section at Joann’s for $5.97 each on clearance–each had black marks on them and they were a shade of peachy pink. It did not match anything in my house. But I figured the cost of the canvas alone was worth $6 and I could always paint over them.

I finally broke out the paint and decided to alter them! I recently redecorated my guest bath in a bird theme with robin’s egg blues, pretty sea foam greens, and a touch of warm brown. When I received my goodie box for the Tombow USA challenge with Canvas Corp, I knew what I was going to do!!

Here is the final result:

I received some gorgeous White on Kraft Damask CCP2722 patterned paper from Canvas Corp as well as a premade canvas flower. I gathered paints, inks, and other embellies to match the colors of my bathroom and went to town.

I used the Tombow 3D Foam Tabs to add dimension to the dress — I did not want a flat decoupaged look–I wanted this dress to stand out!! The beauty of Tombow’s 3D Foam Tabs is they have incredible tack and will hold, even in moist conditions like a bathroom. 

I die cut the canvas sheets from Canvas Corp using a Sizzix die and created more flowers to round out the design:
