Live~Laugh~Love: Canvas Art

I had a package of small canvasses that have been sitting around for a while.  I wanted to do something fun with them.  So I grabbed some paint, some scrapbook paper, some vinyl, some ribbon, and went to town.

The first thing I did was to paint each canvas and then cut a piece of scrapbook paper just slightly smaller than the canvas.  I did a little layering with the papers and inked the edges a bit.  Then I glued them onto the canvas.

I cut the words: Live, Laugh, Love out of vinyl on my Cricut.  I used the Storybook cartridge.

I decided to attach each canvas together by tying a piece of ribbon through holes that I punched with my Crop-A-Dile.  I also added an eyelet to each hole after it was punched.

 This is the end result:

I am going to link up to some of THESE LINKY PARTIES and join in on some of THESE BLOG HOPS this week.

Hope to see you back on Wednesday for my Wandering Wednesday Blog Hop and on Thursday for my Thrilling Thursday Linky Party where you can link up YOUR creations :)
