Last week when I showed you my spice rack to bead storage redo - I asked for you to please ignore the flower print sitting up on my shelf. I got it for a $1 back in May and wasn't sure at the time what I was going to do with it.  I mean - don't get me wrong - it is adorable but not really my style. 

So last week when I shared the pics with you guys, I had already decided to make one of those fabulous dollar store art print redos that everyone has done around blogland! Like Carol @ Frugal Life Project.

Or these that Tricia @ Hicks in Hendersonville did which I LOVE!  Tricia's basically like a neighbor to me - she just lives down the road!  We are going thrifting one of these weekends! 

So are you ready to see mine?  Well for starters, I took my little flower print canvas and painted the edges black since the print overlapped around the edges.

Next up, I grabbed the mod podge and put this adorable piece of 59 cent scrapbook paper and decoupaged it on.

So here you have it!  In 15 minutes you can have a customized piece of art for $1.59!  Perfect addition to my lovely shelf!

I think it looks great over my craft station

You have to try this out for yourself!  It is super easy and takes no time!  Would you do multiples like Carol and Tricia or just do one?  I would love to know!  And if you have done your own art project like this, link it up over on the Frugal with a Flourish Facebook Fan Page!  I know we would all love to see it!

Hi Jess! Oh, how creative you are! I love what you've done with the little canvas! That's a nice little craft desk too!
Thank you so much for popping in to see my little kitchen.
Be a sweetie,

I love these. I'm using a similar idea, using the square canvasses. I plan on using them to spell out my daughter's name above her bed. Hopefully, this project will get somewhere soon.

Oh, yay! Another linky party! I'm heading over cuz I did some feng shui canvases. I'm loving using scrapbook paper and then painting on top of it. Gives a whole 'nother texture!

Love the patio idea! For so many that are in the service they have a small patio in the back of their homes or at the the base that I was on when visiting my son. This would be great!!! You have wonderful ideas!
