Art Canvas for my Grandson's room. I wanted to do something that I have been thinking about for a long time. All the states are cut from retired CTMH papers using the 50 States Cricut cartridge, cut at 5". I took a 16x20 art canvas and swiped my Cranberry ink pad across it to make the stripes for the flag background. Star Spangled Blue dabbed to the upper corner symbolized the blue star background. The edges of the states were distressed with Chocolate ink before being glued to the art canvas with glue dots. The letters were cut from the Cheerful Seasons cricut cartridge at 1 3/4 inches in Chocolate.
This was a lot of fun to do, I was so happy the my daughter was able to be down for a visit to help me piece the puzzle together. I was going to leave it as just a canvas and hang it as such, but after completing this, she (the mom) feels that it needs to be under a glass or acrylic covering of some kind, so I'll be looking for a frame to put it into where I can have it under cover.
