Many times Plaid asks me to design projects such as frames or, in this case, a photo on canvas. They only require that I use the specific Plaid product they designate, and then I'm free to be as creative as I want, Yea! And I love to use family photos whenever possible.
This time, I used a picture of my grandson, Isaiah Michael. Adorable! He was actually 3 years old in this picture and earlier this month he turned 8!
The used Mod Podge Antique Matte, one of Plaid's new Mod Podge products.
I really like the time worn effect it gives to black and white photos.
In case you're wondering...ok, you probably don't really care, but for my family that may read this...I used an M (for Michael, his middle name) instead of an I for Isaiah. Yes, since it was a Plaid project I needed to make sure it photographed well, and the M worked better visually than the I would have, on this particular project :)
I love you Isaiah Michael!
You can make one like this too, you can find my complete instructions here, on Plaid's website.
I noticed, for whatever reason, a download for the template was not included with my instructions. So, If you want it, just send me an email and I will send you a file with the template I made for this project.
While in my local Michaels the other week, I noticed Plaid has a new display for their Mod Podge and paint products. I was so excited to find 10 images of my projects were used! How cool is that?
Next time you visit your local Micheals, you'll find this project with Isaiah Michael featured in the isle with all the Mod Podge and craft paints!
Well, I better get busy! I have several more paintings to finish this week and more Plaid projects due soon!
