Today I'm back to show you some photo's of the canvas I through together very quickly.......record time for me!
Late Saturday afternoon Derek arrived with this huge box of photo's, wondering if I had a spare "HOUR"! He wanted me to do something with them as a display for his wife's surprise birthday party the next day, which we were going to as well.
Look at all these photo's...........different sizes and so many different colours! Notice the bottle of wine......that's to bribe me!
 Here are some photo's before editing.
 I raced to the shops and bought a canvas. I changed all the photos to black and white and adjusted the size as well, which made it a lot easier to line up. I left a white border around the photo's then mat them with black.

 And here is my completed canvas a few hours later.  This photo was taken at night, I found it really hard to get a good picture with out shadows. I used Kaiser Fifth Avenue paper to decorate, I kept it all very simple, there was not time to  do anything else.

The photo below is a close up of stamping I did on the canvas. I used a clear stamp without the acrylic block and wrapped it around the edges of the canvas. It really softened the look of the bright white canvas.

 I wasn't sure if I could throw something together in such a short amount of time..............Looks like I can work under pressure.......... I've already got an order for another one, but that's not until September.

Thank you for stopping by , have a great week everyone!
Be back Soon
