Bubba Canvas for the LESSology Cover Challenge
Kids have interesting relationships with their pets. This pooch passed away when Lexi was four or five. She was old enough to remember riding on his back. She asked nicely for a framed photo of Bubba (aka Jasper) for her room after he died. I used this funny photo of him wearing a Wilson shirt and the heart frame you see above. At the time, it was silver and gold, tacky but pretty enough to make a small person very happy.
Fast forward to now when the frame crashed and burned. Short of having a new piece of glass cut, I decided to remake it for her on a canvas. The boxer beaded pin above is also recycled. I have been waiting to use that FOREVER and finally found just the right piece to use it on.
This fits right in with this month's LESSology challenge: Get Creative with Covers this month!
Loved brushing on some gesso, inking it up, adding some shimmer Modge Podge and then adding my cut out of Bubba, the metal frame, and flowers.
Love how the metal frame turned out so pretty with the green patina paint from Ranger!
Right now we are all enjoying my Bubba canvas which is hanging off some metal hooks I have on the wall that I usually decorate seasonally. It makes me want to make more and hang them at different levels. I am loving the chunky big look and the metal hangers.
