Smile What can I do with mounted canvas??

About a month ago, I was in a lss and I bought two mounted canvases...they are both 12x12...I thought I could do like a scrapbook page for each of the kids and give it to my mom for Christmas (they are her only grandchildren.)

Now, I'm stuck for ideas...does anyone have any canvas they have done that I can look at?? The clerk at the store told me I could paint the canvas and basically do whatever I wanted to, but I'm afraid to start, because I might mess up!!

HELP!!

I did some really big canvases (canvi?!) that were 16x20 because I couldn't find the 12x12 at the time. 12x12 is awesome because you can use a full sheet of pp as the background if you want. I painted mine black and did a bunch of basic grey/coffee themed things for my kitchen. The pics are a bit fuzzy (hard to take a good pic - the light in that area of the kitchen is just wrong!) Here's a link:

I used mod podge to stick the paper to it.

Prior to SCS, I spent a lot of time on Two peas in a bucket. There was a gal on there named Suzy West that became very famous for her canvas work. I believe she even has a book out.

Here is her website:

I bought some 12x12 canvases at a friend's going out of business sale to help her out. I stuck the canvases in the closet, where they've been for the past 6 months, b/c I didn't have a clue what to do with them. Thanks for the posts, b/c they helped me, too!

Yeah, I think it will have to be official...the plural of canvas is canvi...canvases is hard to type too! BTW, I loved the "spew" smilie from Gina. Hilarious!

Please don't let the dullness of my canvi pictures turn you off from trying this...they are very vibrant and funky in real life. I might try retaking the pics but I'd have to move the kitchen table to get close enough to the canvi! It's not something I'd make a lot of but I had fun doing them and I think a 12x12 would be so much easier...I had to do a lot of planning on the paper layout to make sure I covered the canvas in a pleasing pattern...one sheet of any of the wonderful and amazing patterned papers out there would really cut down on the work...you can just paint the whole canvas in any colour - I chose black because my kitchen table is black and the black paint hid the staples on the side of my canvi nicely. I *was* going to do more than one colour but decided to cover the whole thing in paper so there wasn't much point in brushing another colour over the black.

You won't regret it...just lay everything out on the canvas before attaching until you're satisfied with your layout.

Well there you go! Great minds think alike

I have some canvases that I bought at HL a long time ago that I STILL have not done anything with...sounds like a good winter project!
