Sail With Me Altered Canvas

Hello fellow scrappers,

Today I want to share an altered canvas that shows my daughter's
favorite past time, the beach.  She loves anything that has to do 
with beach and lucky for us we live only five minutes away to the closest one.  

I had taken this photo of her and I knew that I wanted to
place it on a canvas.  I had put off working on it for awhile
because I really didn't want to just place the photo on paper and glue
it down on the canvas.  As I was walking by the frames section at Walmart I came
across the perfect solution for my photo, a 4 x 6 frame.

I was so excited to start working on my canvas that I completely
forgot to video tape each step I took in creating it, so sorry about that.
On the YouTube video I explained what I did but if
you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment and I will gladly answer.

Here is my YouTube video.  I show you all the products I
used in making my canvas.

Here are some close up photos showing some of the textures of
the stencils, cheesecloth, inks, etc.
