Altered canvas for friend's bridal shower

This was super quick and easy to make. I put a few coats of paint on it over the last couple days in between doing other things. Tonight I sat down with my Gypsy and planned, cut, and glued the letters in less than an hour...and that included measuring to make sure things were centered, etc. Only cost a little over 5 bucks (about 5 for the canvas which is 8x17 and the paper I already had but was a big stack for 5 bucks)

That turned out great! I made a similar gift for my SIL for Christmas but I forgot to take a picture of it to share here before I gave it to her. I didn't think to use canvas, though! I used a wood plaque thingie. I like the colors you chose - nice and neutral so it can fit in well with anything!

That is beautiful! What font is "family?" This project would be so awesome to attempt, but I'm such a numpty with my Gypsy it's frustrating! You did a beautiful job!

Thanks ladies. The font for family is opposites attract - the main cursive font - welded together

I make something close to this for weddings and baby showers. It's so much fun! I usually do the same thing and I put their last name with family underneath (in opposites attract) and sometimes I put the year of their marriage.

You did a great job! Love the canvas idea!
