This is what I made for my Dad for Christmas. His parents' farm is a century farm and I wanted him to have some memories of it. G&G plan to sell the acreage this spring.
This is the completed project. I painted the canvas with the Barn Red paint, then tried to make it look distressed with my vanilla craft pad and the basic brown ink with a sponge.
The Twill stickers say:
"Other things may change us, but we start and end with Family."
"Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to."
The others say: Count your blessings, Family, Abundance, Blessed, Enjoy, Together.

This look s awesome! Our local scrap store has offered a class on this, but I wasn't able to go. Do you mind sharing what you used to stick the photos on and did you protect them with anything after?
Again, awesome job!

I didn't take the class either, I wish I would have! I have read so many different things, I didn't know which was best! I used sticky strip (wonder tape) or what ever else they call that stuff! If is the double sided super sticky tape. I figured that would be the best way to stick it to the canvas since you can use it for ribbon. I didnt' seal this with anything. I didn't want to ruin the pictures. I read somewhere that you could mod podge but I didn't feel that was a good choice for this. It may not last forever but I'm sure he can enjoy it while it does. These are pictures from my digital so I can always print more!
