1.   Paint the canvases so they can start drying. I did 2 coats for even coverage. Don’t forget to paint the edges of the canvases for a more professional look.

2.   Cut out the images and the letters. Then lay them out on the dried canvases for spacing. Glue the images and letters down lightly to keep them from moving in the next step.

3.   Modpodge over the images and letters. Make sure you keep your layers thin otherwise it will not dry very clear.

I would describe my design style as Modern Vintage. I find myself drawn to items with personality, a sense of history but with a modern sensibility. Outside of work, my time is mostly spent with my husband. Being married to your best friend definitely has its advantages; you have a partner to do things with! We like to take trips to the beach, cycling in the foothills, some thrift store shopping and spending time with family and friends. When I am not hanging out with the hubby I enjoy making crafts for parties and our home. Getting in the kitchen and cooking up a great meal is always rewarding for me.
