Don't know what SITSgirls is, well it's a community of 40,000 plus women who support each other through this crazy thing we call blogging.  It's pretty awesome actually.

If you are visiting from SITS, welcome.

I had this post planned for today and then got that good news that I was today's featured blogger so I wanted to give a BIG WELCOME to those of you that come to hang out with me.

Look at what I'm going to show you how to make today...

I made this antique looking photo canvas with a few simple craft supplies. All you need is Canvas, Mod Podge, Scrapbook Paper, Foam Brush, and Craft Paint

Oh, and your picture! 

I printed the words of "The Mr." and mine's song on a piece of photo paper with one of my favorite wedding photos. I also choose to do an 8x10. You know start small in case it doesn't work ;-)

First, I cut some trim out of scrapbook paper and made a border around my canvas with it using mod podge. 

Then I used spray adhesive to attach my printed photo to the canvas.

I lightly sprayed the canvas and let it sit for a minute until it was just tacky enough to attach my photo to the canvas. 

After I let this completely dry for about 30 minutes I put a couple layers of mod podge over the whole canvas. Let the mod podge dry completely between each layer.

After it was completely dry, I just took a sea sponge and just started dabbing some craft acrylic paint around the edges and across the photo. 

 That's all there is to it and now you have a cherish-able gift for anyone. 

If you are new, THANKS for visiting.
