Altered Valentine’s Canvases

Hello ribbon lovers! DeeDee here today, bringing you a set of altered canvases.

After The Ribbon Lady asked us to do projects for the May Arts booth at CHA I kind of got hooked on alter mini canvases, so decided to offer a class! Insert this set of canvases!

There’s lots of steps that go into these babies; stamping in gesso, drying, misting, inking, layering, etc. But today I’m sharing a short video on layering some beautiful ribbons with lace and a vintage button to embellish one of the canvases.
