I created something different to donate for the FL CCW craft table, and thought that these decoupaged seascape canvases might be appealing to buyers. The aging process was done simply be lightly applying some distress ink to the original paper image. The fun was in finding the shells and twine and other items to coordinate with the image. Some of the shells were gathered at the beach near the craft show's location! The anchor was a find at Michael's. The backside is finished with a color paper to match the image on the canvas front. With the artist panels on sale, these were easy to design in multiple settings. The hardest part was using the hot glue gun to get that edging to stay in place! I look at dsp differently now as I plan to create some for myself that feature other themes.
