Day 10 of our 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

My project for today's edition of the Blog Hop is a Custom Canvas.
These are 8 x 10 canvas frames, with printed designs Mod-Podged onto them.
Here are the steps for creating your own:
Cut tissue paper exactly 8.5 inches wide, and about 13 inches long.  Fold the ends over a piece of regular copy paper and tape securely.  This will allow the paper to travel through your printer.
Choose your 8 x 10 artwork, and place it into a word document.  Print it onto the tissue paper.
Cut around the edges, leaving the 8 x 10 final image.

Use Mod Podge, and a sponge brush, and a framed canvas.
Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the canvas.

Carefully place the tissue over the canvas.  It is important to start square, and lay it down evenly, because it will become wet tissue!
PAT (do not rub) the tissue into the Mod Podge to see the canvas texture. 
 It will dry very sturdy, but it is very fragile while it is wet. 

Add embellishments and hang or set it on an easle. 
This is a perfect project for seasonal designs, family pictures, and subway art!

I hope you have enjoyed these projects, as well as the others from the blog hop so far.
Please be sure to leave us some comments so you can be in the drawings for the four prizes that will be given away on Dec. 17th.
