Fun with canvas and paint

I've discovered a new scrapbook surface... CANVAS! I buy various sizes of canvases on sale at my local craft store, create something fabulous and hang it on my wall. Viola! Instant wall art! My most recent canvas was painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints from Ranger (these are da bomb) to look like clouds in the sky, toned down a bit with random strokes of gesso, then covered in Tattered Angels' Glimmer Glam. I matted my photos with papers from Bo Bunny's Et Cetera line, added journaling pieces from the same line, and finished it off by using Distress Stains on two swirly pieces of canvas from Prima. It's the new focal point in my guest room and I love it!
