For my dad

I made this canvas for my dad for his birthday from a photo he has of his Aunt and Mother. It was a poor copy and I had to do some work in Photoshop to getting it looking this good. I printed it on canvas paper from OfficeMax and then put it over cardboard to make it like a little canvas.
I also added paper over a 5 x 7 canvas I purchased at Michael's. I glued the paper on with Mod Podge and then covered over the paper with the same. I also used van dyke brown ink to antique the edges of the canvas and little photo. After inking, I sprayed with a sealer.
After attaching the little canvas, I added the victorian scrap aroundit. The word "sister" is made from antique school letters and inked . The two daisies are also antique.

I hope he likes it!
