Canvas pictures

I made a couple canvas pictures for my good friend who now lives in Germany with her hubby and two kids.  It was simple and didn't take much time.  I looked up lots of ideas and found that printing a picture off my printer with tissue paper was the easiest since I already did that making coasters for Christmas.  I mod podged the canvas first, then laid the tissue paper over it, cut the edging off and mod podged it again when the undercoat was dry.  I then painted the edging with acrylic paint to roughen the look up a bit and then mod podged it again.  The tissue paper gave it a textured look!  You can do colored or black/white.  Hope you enjoy!
