    Default altered canvases for my friend

    I finished these canvases for a friend of mine. they will be part of her Christmas present. MANY THANKS to Shannon for cutting me the cross and sending it to me (from the wedding solutions cartridge, I think). These are 5"x5" canvases that you can find in the kids crafts section in Michael's. Before altering them, they had a stamped on image that kids are supposed to paint (ex. basketball, truck, etc.) Someone on the cricut MB posted some of these that were winter/holiday themed.

    The butterfly, heart, "hope" and "love" are from Home Decor. The "faith" is from opposites attract. You can't tell in the pic, but the cross is popped up (in hindsight, I should have done that for the butterfly and the heart too...oh well!)

    Those are great. Did you use vinyl on them or paper and mod podge?
