Don’t be discouraged…

My mom recently had a medical emergency that has left her hospitalized for an indefinite amount of time.  While in the hospital she is receiving wonderful cards with encouraging messages.  There is not much space to display those cards.  I created a 12×12 canvas to hold some of the cards along with a message to encourage her.

Steps to create the canvas:

  • Paint the canvas yellow
  • Add strips of leftover Dotty for You paper
  • Stamp in spaces using a background stamp
  • Ink the edges of the canvas
  • Seal the canvas using a clear matte medium
  • Add a few embellshipments using pop dots
  • Add texture paste with a stencil in a few spots
  • Punch holes in the bottom of the canvas
  • Add ribbon
