Before and After

 Canvases from Hobby Lobby.  Plucked from the clearance rack.  10x10, with deep sides! Loud designs, enhanced with gems...so fancy!

Before:  

Gems picked right off!!!

After:


Some closer ups:



I love how they turned out!  I painted right over the existing designs, not bothering to prime first.  That way I could purposely let some of the original patterns and colors show through underneath, which makes the finished artwork much more interesting!  Hard to capture on camera, but it's a really neat effect!

{I still have all 6 of these.  Email me at paperprayers@hotmail.com if you're interested and I can tell you what the sides say!  $45 each.}
