Canvas Home Decor

EDITED:  Skip on over to Quick Quotes for the "Frame It" Challenge.  Because mine in a canvas, it has 2 inner frames and the is a frame that holds "remember" on the front cover.
Hello friends!  I've been busy working on some "fun" projects, ya know the  kind you can do 'just for fun'?  I'll have 21 projects at CHA this year so that was keeping me busy.  They're all done and in the mail.
I've been working on a canvas and because I had been gifted some Glimmer Glam in shades of purple and blue,I decided to make this fun canvas book.
I've added an extra layer of canvas to the cover and cut it a bit to expose some lace.  Heat embossed WOW Embossing Powder on parts of the canvas and on the edges of the canvas.  "Remember" and "These are the moments I want to remember" are Quick Quotes.  I've made little canvas straps for the canvas to open like a book.
Stamping and heat embossing on canvas with WOW Brocade Stamp and WOW powders.
Heat embossing on metal book plate.

Your canvas project is beautiful. I am seeing more uses of the back of the canvas. It gives a really nice depth to the finished look. Blissful and Creative 2012...
