fabric, ink, ephemera, and paint
These are a great gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, baptisms, birthday… you name it. Once a general theme is chosen for the setting, the background is filled in using words or your choice: quotes from friends, Scripture, a favorite poem, or a rambling from me. All stages of this are approved by you, of course, before anything becomes permanent.
Each shape is hand-cut from fabric and secured to the canvas. Text is handwritten by me using archival ink. The completed canvas is coated with a light layer of Krylon ‘Preserve It’ protectant.
The 16×20 size is a standard size. You will find a wide selection of ready-made frames of this size at your local Michaels or Hobby Lobby to match your canvas. Personally, I love the barnwood frames with these… they make it look handmade but clean.
