Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

July 12, 2008

I attempted a new project yesterday and today. I painted on a canvas for the first time. It was a lot of fun, and as you can see, it wasn’t anything too technical.  This is for a house warming gift for some friends of ours. The colors are very golden and umber. I painted it yesterday and today I put a decal that I got from Uppercase Living. Here’s the decal ready for application. . It took Jim and me both to get this on the canvas without ripping anything. But, the end result is fabulous.  We will bring it to them tomorrow. I really hope they like it. I’ve got a blank canvas here, I wonder what I could do with it????
