Wedding Canvas Collage

Wedding gift for my nephew Mike's 7-14-12 wedding to Katie.  I scrap lifted the idea from Manglesen's craft store in Omaha, NE.  The Manglesen's sample used pictures of the bride and groom from their wedding day. 

12"x24" CREATIVE ART TREE 13 oz. Cotton Duck Artist Canvas.  Thin 5/8" Stretcher Bars, Vinyl words purchased from Manglesen's craft store in Omaha, NE.  PAINT ALL CANVAS AREAS with a paint color of your choice.  I used WARM WHITE Acrylic paint by Americana .  Allow to dry completely before adhering photo's to canvas using Modge Podge.  Place vinyl saying to the right of the canvas area 1" away from the edge. 

  Picture of bride & groom taken from the SAVE THE DATE card.  Take photo copy of picture on regular photo copy paper.  I took my SD card to Kinko's to reprint copies on copy paper.  It cost 59 cents a picture gave a much more vibrant color than my home printer.  Mod Podge (matte finish) the picture to the 4"x4" artist canvas.  Gently rub the picture to the artist canvas.  Be sure to make edges stick down on the artist canvas using Modge Podge.   Allow to dry and ad a coat of MODGE PODGE to the top of picture.  Use E-6000 clear glue to adhere the 4"x4" canvas to the 12"x24" canvas.

I cut the letter "D" from TIE THE KNOT Cricut Cartridge. Place vinyl initial on one 4"x4" canvas. Adhere your favorite embellishment.  The flower and leaves were from Prima Flowers.  The silver metal heart with the word "Love" was on the candy that was handed out at the bridal shower on May 19, 2012.   See close up in next picture.

Can't wait to give this to my God Son Mike for his wedding to Katie on 7-14-12!!!  Hope you enjoy!
