Old picture re-do

I had a set of pictures that went with the old decor of our living room, but not the new...I wanted to breath some new life into them to match the new look : )

I had purchased yards and yards of fabric that was originally going to go on the walls. It never made it up, of course. Then I was going to make curtains with it...that didn't happen either, haha. living room decor it is!

I just quickly cut a piece of fabric off that was large enough to cover the picture.

Then, lined it up on the canvas where I wanted it, and glued my heart out! Only on the back so no lumps and bumps would be seen.

Trim off the excess fabric in the back!
(yea, it doesn't looks so pretty, but no one will see it)

And voila two matching pieces!

Now, I just need to find the perfect place for them.
I thought I had a spot in mind, but tried it and didn't like it.

Love it! I keep meaning to do something like this, but I can't make up my mind as to what fabric to use.

I have just made a wallpaper panel in a similar fashion to this. There is some thing very satisfactory in making things for your home that no-one else has in theirs.
They are lovely.
much love
