Red, White, Kaboom Blog Hop

Welcome to the Red, White, Kaboom! Blog Hop! Happy 4th of July! We hope you are having a great holiday and thanks for spending a little time with us today. You should have come from Connie. If not, go back and start the hop at Alicia's blog. We hope you enjoy our creative efforts we have to share today. Enjoy your holiday!

For my project today I decorated a canvas with vinyl:
I purchased this design in the Silhouette store.  I cut it out in red vinyl.  I ungrouped the image and copied the diamonds.  I cut the diamonds out in blue vinyl.  I transferred the red vinyl to a flat 8x8 canvas.  I layered the blue diamonds on top of the red diamonds.

I love making my own holiday decor!  These canvases also make great gifts!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Here's some blog candy from Alicia at Golden Goddess Designs for one lucky winner!
The rules:

Melissa R. - I do not seal my canvas, but I use mine indoors. Other people seal with a layer of Mod Podge especially for outdoor use. Thanks for the great question!
