Faux Canvas

I had some fun making a project for the adult day care my Mother goes to. We made a Faux Canvas with a spring theme.


 We used  the bottom of a box (these were from a grocery store) that is 9" x 12. They were painted with Gesso.

 The grass was punched out- 6 per 8"x11 1/2" cardstock. the trees were cut using the Silhouette- a design from the library in the Make the Cut program (tree23),  The clouds- Memory Box dies in Marina Mist SU CS. The bird is a unbranded die from China cut out in red SU CS. The flowers are from various punches- I put double sided sticky tape behind the clouds, the bird and back of the flowers so they could be added to the canvas easier.  I am not sure if it was easier or not- peeling the tape off the shapes- or if it would have been easier to glue each piece.

 We made a total of 13 or 14- here are a few of the faux canvases:

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, I adore these! What a fantastic idea. If you don't mind, I'm going to borrow it and use it at my local seniors center where I teach a craft class each week. The ladies will love it. :-D
