Valentine Canvas

I made a Valentine Canvas for Altered Pages, and it's on their site (here) as a kit! There are lots of awesome collage pages here, as well as stamps, papers and lots more! Come take a look!

I made this canvas because I had a canvas that I made a few years ago that I didn't like, and it was just sitting around. I had a brainstorm one night as to what to do with it, and I came up with this:

It will probably be a Valentines gift for hubby! I painted over the canvas, and you can see some of the previous design coming through the paint, which is awesome! If you buy the kit you get everything you need to make it, including the (new) canvas! You could always do a quick collage on the new canvas, then just paint over it to let the design come through.  

Thanks for looking!

Love vintage Valentine's! This is gorgeous Linda! He will love it! I emailed you, but not sure it got to you. You were asking about the "Valentine.." stamp. It's from Tim Holtz set called "Love Struck". Thank you for visiting and your comments and pinned!! Love your journal pages too. Very inspirational! Go Canada!
