Vintage Bezel Canvas

Good Morning, I am so happy you stopped by today!
Why is it when you are older the days go faster and the list gets longer?  I am trying to keep up with everyones blogs but then the day is gone and another one goes I apologize to you for my slow visitation on your blog.  I love to visit you but it is taking me longer with my older son and his wife living here.  Busy all the time, even the sweet dogs are demanding, hehe.  I love it, we are having fun!

We have a new challenge today at 7 Kids College Fund

The challenge is anything goes with a twist of Vintage.  Your main items should be something that is being sold in the 7 kids College Fund Store. Simple!

Here is my canvas

Here are the two bezels I made hooked together

Up close and personal looks of each bezel

The sentiment and bottom of the canvas

Here is my husbands grandmother's lace, I have a little bit of it and it is over 100 years old so this was the perfect canvas for it.  I love the scallops in it. 

This is a Webster's Pages Key

Side view of all the textures of the Prima flowers. Some of the embellishments are metal and some are fabric or paper.  Most of them are Prima.

You can see a hint of the stagecoach and horses from the paper under the embellishing.

I tried to embellish without covering all the lace, the lace did well with mod podge on it and I think it will help preserve it more.

I have been photographing outside on my front porch. It sits on a wooden rocking chair. I like it.
In this photo you can see the glitter around the edges of the canvas.

Thank you for visiting with me today. If you have any questions about how to make the canvas just email me and I can help you out.

Have a great day,
