We have a new-to-us RV that we're trying to personalize. The interior is mostly black and tan, and while pretty, I'm a gal who likes to surround herself with color! In removing some of the previous owners' decor, a little bit of wallpaper was torn from a small section of the wall. I found this 4" x 8" Canvas Concepts canvas while at Recollections this past weekend, and it was the perfect size to cover that awkward spot!
Our RV license plate reads "RVOKIES," hence the wording on this piece. I have to say, it just tickles me to look at it! First I Mod Podge-d the paper on the canvas with Paper Mod Podge. The interstate symbol and Red Letter Alpha were made using Cuttlebug dies and machine. The Happy Camper was embossed with silver ep, and the Happy Camper sticking his head out the window is from a clear stamp set by Doodlebug. Isn't that the cutest dp? It's called Postcard Paradise and is by Reminisce. Everything but the ribbon is covered in a few coats of Mod Podge.
I can't wait to surprise my DH with this -- I think he's going to love it! (Surely it will justify all the money I spend on stamping, don't you think?!)
Thanks for looking! Happy Trails!

Carole OMG this is just the cutest thing ever and by all means justifys all you spend and all the time it takes to come up with the magnificent work you do. He will love this and if he doesn't shame on him. It's great. Good luck on your renovation.
