2012- "Creative Minds-Enter into the World of New Beginnings"- Altered Canvas using handmade Shabby Chic Treasures


I came across a YT video by SACrafter making the Prima Shabby Chic Treasure windows, doors and shutters.....So I decided to give them a try.......These are the windows, doors (red-below ) and shutters That I made (pictured above )......I used Corrugated Cardstock by Canvas Corp, LLC. .....They come in 12x12 sheets...I found it very easy to work with ..and it saved me time of  stripping and cleaning a cardboard box.  I also did the crackled technique on all of the pieces....I finally decided to make a "Red" door and just had to incorporate it into a project......I altered a canvas...and used one of the red doors...

Okay....I'm off to make more....to make them or for instructions you may want to check out SACrafters YT videos..I did not follow her instructions totally ...but was able to create them using the basis of her instructions........She does a great job with making these.....Thanks for the inspiration lady......
 



This is the canvas I made using the handmade Shabby Chic Door.......

Ms. Dee, you are incredible! I love what you've done with the windows and doors - especially in red! That canvas is beautiful - you did a fantastic job - looks like you crackled the page too - marvelous! you've inspired me to try these out once I get the crackle paint from M's.
