Create a reversed canvas memory art

The idea of this project is using a canvas on the reverse side.

First Start with cutting the front out of your canvas.

Then paint the back of the canvas frame with your choice of acrylic paint.

Choose a 12x12 scrap booking paper for the background. I used a new line of paper from My Minds Eye called "Good Day Sunshine".

Place ruler on your paper and hold down while you rip paper in two. This gives you a ruff edge.

Cut coordinating paper to fit your vinyl words.

Then distress your paper using Heart Attack by We R Memory Keepers.

Distress ink the sides using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed ink.

Add a strip of paper from your coordinating collection and distress the sides.

Glue to the front of the canvas so that it shows through like a shadow box.

Add photo, vinyl words and embellishments using photo dots to give the picture dimention.

And you have completed your Canvas Shadow Box!
