This is my first time as a Blogger! I must warn you...I have terrible spelling....even with spell check!!!
I have always dreamed of having my own little shop and in February 2012 that dream came true. I have a little shop called "Vintage Treasures". It's located in the quaint courtyard at Whippletree Junction in Duncan, BC. I fell in love with Whippletree the first time I visited there in 2008. I have met some wonderful people here. It's become like a second home.
I love treasure hunting for unique things that can be repurposed or upcycled and crafting of course.
I will keep you posted on projects I'm working on.
Today I tried a technique I saw online. Where you print an image onto tissue paper and decoupage the image on a canvas. I came across an image I knew Leola (a wonderful fellow merchant at Whippletree) from leolasstudio would like....so I thought I would make it for her.
Supplies: Canvas, tissue paper (taped onto cardstock), Modge Podge
|Image printed on tissue paper|
I love how it turned out. I antiqued the edges and gave it a top coat of decoupage. It makes it look like a real painting on canvas.The picture does not due it justice. Leola loved it, by the way!!! Such a lovely lady :)
Well that's it. I DID IT!!!! Blogging has begun. Big sigh.
Until next time
