Sweet Sentiments Altered Canvas – by Heidi Blankenship

Published by at 8 00 am under Alterables,Graphic 45,Home Decor

Today Heidi created a gorgeous altered canvas project with the Sweet Sentiments Collection by Graphic 45 in the 8×8 size and a variety of beautiful laces. The Graphic 45 papers work up so well for fairly easy altered projects such as this one, and Heidi is showing us some step by step photos over on her blog, so be sure to click in. And we do have another equally as beautiful and NEW pad in stock by Graphic 45 that I’ll be showing you further down. It’s the Botanical Tea Collection and it’s even prettier than the name would imply, so be sure to scroll all the way down.  Now, back to Heidi’s altered canvas:


Isn’t this gorgoues!  A little craft paint, fussing cutting and gluing is all it took to alter this 8×8 canvas to create this gorgeous item of home decor.

You can find Heidi’s post here with some helpful photos and tips.
