In my last blog post, I showed some burlap projects that appeared in the Fall issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.  Today, I have another one to share.  Here is a burlap canvas photo display I created for this wonderful photo of my mom (left) and her sister Rose (who passed away in February).

I snapped this pic with my iPhone in June 2013 when we celebrated my Aunt Rose’s birthday, and I am so glad I did! Do you know what they are laughing about? They think it’s hilarious that my little iPhone is actually a camera! I also made a layout with this photo for my mom, and it is featured in this Canadian Scrapbooker webisode.

This canvas and wood stand is from the Dollar Store. I altered the wood frame with Clearsnap black Surfacez ink, which works great on both porous and non-porous surfaces….pretty much ANYTHING.


I covered the white canvas board with DCWV burlap (12 x 12 size).

The red and cream roses are made from May Arts Burlap Wired Ribbon. I folded the burlap ribbon in half and then rolled the roses and glued closed with Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac. The burlap leaves are cut freehand from more DCWV burlap.

I used a Graffiti Stencil with black gesso to create the roses design along the bottom.

It’s so easy to transform a plain canvas into something with wonderful texture using burlap!  To see more fabulous projects using burlap, pick up the Fall 2014 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine on newsstands today!
