Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #13 - Let's Cycle.....Up-Cycle That Is!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Challenge #13 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!  Challenge #13 is to Up-Cycle something and make it useful!  We all tend to have a bottom shelf somewhere that has boxes, tins, pieces of packing material etc. that we just couldn't part with; thinking we would make it into something wonderful!  So go pull it out and let's Up-Cycle!


My canvas was stretched and sagging and I wanted to use it some way so I found a piece of corrugated board that was packing material and I pulled off the sheet of paper over the ridges and then painted some black acrylic paint here and there.  Our sponsors for the month of August are:  Canvas Corp and Altered Pages.   I used bits and pieces from each company to Up-Cycle the canvas.  I think it turned out pretty well and I love the craft and black colors!

 Below is a photo of the wonderful prize package from Canvas Corp for Challenge #13!


This would make a wonderful addition to your hoard, so get busy and Up-Cycle and come join us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous for the challenge!

I just love the color palette you chose for this wonderful canvas! The black and kraft go together so well! The corrugated board adds another layer of beautiful texture, too. Your work is always a treat for the eyes, my friend!

I have cupboards and drawers full of things that need to be upcycled. Great project for this challenge, Glenda! Love how you painted the corrugated cardboard and dressed up your canvas. I like the "create everyday", too. Now, there's a great idea!

Mona Pendleton said...

Gorgeous canvas! Love the corrugated cardboard background! The vintage image is darling! Thanks for the inspiration!

Christy Butters said...

Fantastic. Love the vintage image mixed with the black, the cardboard and burlap. Great mix of textures

Pamellia Johnson said...

SO amazing! Love your use of cardboard and burlap and your colours are fantastic! Great sentiment tags too! :)

Gloria Stengel said...

You are so smart! I always toss those saggy canvases back into the box and hunt for a better one! But you breathed life into it! I love this...esp. the cardboard background!

Amber Milone said...

Love the black and kraft color scheme Glenda! Really lovely way to repurpose a sprung canvas.

Tonya said...

I love how you up-cycled this into a gorgeous project! <3

So impressed with your solution to the saggy 'canvas' - I'm one of those who would have dismantled it and restretched it and cussed the whole time. LOL You make something super special from it. Very very nice work!

I really like the cardboard on the canvas! Love the combination of the Altered Pages image with the products from the Canvas Corp. Thanks for a great blog hop!
