Distressed Photo Canvas: The Perfect Gift!

One of my best friends gave me this belated Christmas gift about a month ago, and I’m only just getting to posting about it now. It’s a distressed photo canvas! This is a photo from my wedding which she took and created this amazing work of art!

She is a fellow blog-reader and spotted this amazing project on another blog, Delia Creates. The how-to project is detailed here: http://deliacreates.blogspot.com/2010/03/distressed-picture-canvases.html

I can’t wait to try this out for myself! It’s a great gift idea or fun to do just for yourself. I love the textural results!

My brain is exploding with ideas! Distressed signs are very trendy right now – I could make my own! I love that bits of the image rub right off leaving exposed canvas throughout bits of the piece. The colors get a watery gradient going through them as well, so it almost feels like a watercolor painting.

For now, we have a great keepsake of a wonderful day. I love this photo. It was taken right after our wedding ceremony and looking at this picture takes me right back!

Delia Creates shows several examples of projects she has done so you guys can see a few more examples. I love that you can use this project for photos or artwork.
