12 x12 Canvas Art workshop

CTMH just released another Home Décor Workshop which includes a painted canvas, Chipboard, and embellishments to decorate a fabulous 12”x12” all canvas. 

Watch this video to see more.

Of course, I usually try to use my extra embellishments if possible, so I used another plain 12 x 12 canvas I had in my stash and created another canvas so the I had two in slightly different color schemes.

Now you can order the Canvas Art Kit on your own through an order placed with me or online on my website. However if you are like me, sometimes you  need a special night set aside to make sure things get done, then come to my workshop and get more bang for your buck.

 Not only will you create ONE canvas, you will also create another 12x12 canvas using the left-over supplies for just $50 (that’s just $25 a canvas). I will supply the additional canvas and extra sparkle flourish and twine so you can make TWO decorated canvas.  I think these would make a perfect gift for Mother's Day or a great Home Decor item to decorate your home.

Fabric tips Home Decor Frame

One way to add texture, color, and pattern to a piece of home décor is with fabric. The new Chantilly textiles make it easy to embellish with fabrics that include the beautiful colors and patterns that are typical of Close To My Heart. In the frame décor featured on page 16 of the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book, pieces of Pear damask and Buttercup polka-dot fabric from the Chantilly textiles, as well as burlap ribbon, add a little something extra to a standard white frame. Follow these simple steps to incorporate fabric into an embellished frame that you can hang anywhere.

1. Determine how long you’d like the finished ribbon and bow. This is based on the size of your frame and if you’ll be hanging it. If you are hanging it on a wall or door, you’ll need enough ribbon to wrap around the top of the frame a couple of times and still have a long strip coming out the back of the frame.
2. Cut enough strips of fabric to equal your desired length, making sure the strips are about 3½" wide to wrap around the burlap ribbon.
3. Sew the short ends of the strips together to create one long strip that equals the finished size you need for the project.
4. Fold the long fabric strip around a piece of burlap ribbon of the same size and secure temporarily with a straight pin.
5. With a sewing machine, carefully sew four straight lines down the length of the fabric-wrapped burlap ribbon. This will keep the burlap from moving around or bunching up inside the fabric.
6. Loop and hot glue the fabric-wrapped burlap ribbon around the top of the frame a couple of times so that it is nice and sturdy for handling and hanging.
7. Tie the remaining fabric-wrapped burlap ribbon into a large bow. Fold the tails of the bow into a wave and hot glue to the frame to secure the shape.
8. Embellish frame with accessories, as desired.
Easy, isn’t it? Now you have a beautiful piece of fabric-embellished home décor that you can show off to friends, family, and especially your customers! 

Check out the Chantilly and For Always textiles in the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book to get your creative juices flowing for more project ideas with fabric.
