Blog swapping sure sounded like fun to me,

and there really couldn't have been a better time for me to blog swap with Stacey.

I love to craft but haven't completed projects I set out to do,

lately I've been creating items like these


I had a project in mind and am so glad I finally did it.

Recently I took some photos of my kids and really wanted to have a canvas made of the best one.

Well it was hard to decide, which photo once I began uploading.

Then I had an idea,

instead I planned on making my own photo canvas with all of them,

I even brought my husband to the same spot so my son could get a couple photos of us to add to my project.


I had the photos printed, I did not print them myself for fear they would bleed with this project.

I began with a 16x20 canvas.

I selected 16 (4x6) photos, then trimmed off one inch from each photo to make them 4x5.

I applied mod podge all over the canvas and then placed each photo onto the wet mod podge and slightly over lapped the edges so when they dried it would be easy to brush over the tops without lifting and edges.

I used the Matte finish and I love how it came out.


I had started with a brush and wished that I had used a sponge brush. You can see the brush
marks on the top row here, but only when the light hits it in a certain direction.


Otherwise it really is quite invisible.

Now to find a happy home for it.

Thanks Stacey for helping me get my project done. Sometimes we all need a little inspiration.

Now I just need to dust off my sewing machine and make one of those

camera straps I saw your tutorial on.


Thanks again to Diane for this great project! I am loving it. As soon as you throw pictures into a craft, I am SOLD!! She did a great job on it. I am so glad she shared it with us! Don't forget to check out Created by Diane for all of her yummy creations!

that is so cool! I think there is even a mod podge that when it is applied right it looks just like canvas. I wish I made food that looked like that...
