The damask was actually a "mistake..." What happened was this: I ordered some damask, because I wanted to put strips of it (vertically) on the cupboards of our wardrobe. But, then it was going to be way too expensive to do that, and we weren't bringing our wardrobe to Ontario anyway. AND, when the one strip of damask came that I did order, it was mistakingly horizontally aligned instead. So...instead of ordering another strip, I decided to get creative...
The Prayer of St Francis of Assisi (see words here: http://www.prayerguide.org.uk/stfrancis.htm ) has always been one of my favorites! And, thanks to Heidi at www.treasuryofmemories.com, we were able to come up with this great formatting for the vinyl lettering.
I painted the canvas a variety of robins-egg blue colors, and brought in the greener color of our couch. Then, I applied the vinyls (such high quality!), and WILL seal it with modge-podge (but for now, there is ONE letter missing! oops!)
Thanks for looking - we finally feel like we have a complete living room now!
