You will need some canvas...

Barbie is bringing the tutorial to us this week. You can stop by to check
 out her easy instructions. I have a roll of canvas from my oil painting 
days. I have washed a big piece  of it to remove some of the sizing 
and gesso but  it leaves some on it which keeps it from coloring 
evenly. Actually I liked the results of uneveness, it gives a sort
 of Monet look, my favorite artist! I cut a small piece off and 
stamped it with the Lotus Image from the Lotus Blossom Set.
 I used Tim Holtz inks to color it. The edges were frayed 
and stitched onto the mat The Fishtail was embossed with
 the folder. The top was cut with a MS 
checkboard punch. I  stitched the top together
and then cut and rounded the 
corners of the blue piece  and tied it all together.
 The base is a Lost and Found dp and the stripe is a recycle off
a piece of packaging that had the same colors in it.. 

Hope you all have a great weekend and would love to have you
stop over and join the Challenge too!
