Easy Canvas Idea Board


idea board feature corel

I made this easy idea board for my studio with a gallery wrapped canvas I got at a garage sale.  I can use it to keep track of new sayings I have discovered and inspirational ideas.


memory board start

I got the canvas at a garage sale and the white wasn’t perfect so I covered it with a nice coat of gesso (a thick white acrylic paint that really covers imperfections.)  I have a collection of floral themed die cuts which were perfect to decorate the corners and some pink and white bakers string to make the strands to attach my inspiration pieces.


idea board finished

I used hot glue to attach the die cut floral pieces after I wrapped the canvas with the baker’s string that I pulled tightly.


idea board back

I used hot glue to hold the baker’s string in the back of the canvas.

This is hanging on my wall in the studio and I got a bag of the little clothespins at Dollar Tree to attach “today’s inspiration”!
