Thanks to good hubby, I got my printer ink yesterday. I printed off the test photo, and I got it onto the canvas.
This is a HUGE learning project for me. I like the photo and the way it printed off. I did not, however, take enough care with how it was put onto the canvas. There were bubbles....LOTS of bubbles. Bummer. I am going to find a good squeegee and see if I do a better job next time.
I will also paint the canvas next time, before I put the photo on there. One person did paint the edges of her canvas, and I can see where that looks WAY more professional and classy.
Other than those boo-boo's, I think it came out quite nice.

In the bottom photo you can see the back of the frame - and you can actually see the photo thru the canvas! Huh.
I had an idea to put black ribbon around the edges, and tried, but it looked
I also got a couple of decent photos of the hummingbird that hangs out. He/she was sitting on the fence and didn't fly away when I walked down to take the photos, or when I walked back up when I was done with photos (I didn't show the photo of the photo canvas that I took while it was hanging on the fence post. I liked this one better). So I used the porch railing to steady my elbows while I took some more photos.
And here is what I baked this week. I had the recipe in my recipe book where my hand written recipes are. It was in my own handwriting. I'm pretty sure it was a recipe my mom might have used, but not positive. In any case, it was SO easy. And they are SOOOOO much better than store-bought-out-of-a-box!
Ok, well, it's time for me to chat on IM with my cousin, so off I go. Just wanted to share what I've been up to. I will be doing some more crafts quite soon....I have a couple of more super ideas that I hope work!
Take care! I'll be back...................
