Canvas Inspiration with Suzanne!

Good morning! 

Suzanne here to share my canvas project with you :) I have never worked with canvas - let me tell you, you NEED to try it if you haven't either! Quick Quotes sells canvas in varying sizes; for my project I used the 12x12 variety.

I wanted to make a home decor wedding present for my friend who is getting married in 2 weeks. I used the new "Summer Breeze" collection:

I inked the edges of the canvas with Very Berry Powder Puff Chalk Ink. These inks cover the canvas SO nicely! I used patterned papers from Summer Breeze to create 3 photo mats and the background. My sentiment is the half page vellum "Families are Tied Together".

I created my "heart strings" for her wedding date using the purple gingham ribbon and diecut hearts using the same patterned paper. The numbers are her wedding date :)

I hope she enjoys it, as much as I enjoyed making it for her!  Happy crafting.  : )

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Summer Breeze collection kit
