Just when I decided that I wanted to do my own striped art canvas (yes I’m still talking and not doing) like this one,
Â or this one inÂ a bedroom in Elle Decor,
I startedÂ reading all of this talkÂ about creating your own abstract canvasÂ or creatingÂ a dynamite grouping in a single eveningÂ like these canvases that Mrs. Blandings wrote about,
or making swell art out of red tickets,
Â via Blue Bell Bazaar
or framing fabric or wallpaper like this,

or making your own abstract or your own modern masterpiece like this,

You can see how I got a little distracted.
After finding thisÂ suzani on Ebay for my friend Kristin who wants to frameÂ one andÂ hangÂ it over her sofa, I told her why not just paint your own canvas, its cheaper, way more fun and all of the kids are doing it.
