Here is a cropped section from the canvas I showed above so you can see how I stamped onto the canvas after I printed it on my new Canon large format printer I recently bought. I just ran the canvas 8 x 11 sheet through the printer and was amazed at how much detail you can see. I sprayed it this morning with Krylon Matt Spray and you can see how vibrant the image became. Now I want to do a 12" x 12"!
After I printed my photo on the canvas sheet I used our Flourish Stamp set and red ink to stamp the flourish designs to match the building's red door, #13 and Esperanza lettering. Then I got Scott to use his staple gun to attach it to a canvas frame I bought at the Dollar Store. Oops, don't look at my dirty stamps as I never clean them.
I just found some random canvas sheets here in my stash so looked to find a good source and I'm happy to say that Canvas Corp has an amazing array of canvas goodies and they are have pillows, yardage for big projects (I saw a headboard) and they are coming out with purses, pendant packets and more!
There was a big festival during our stay and I was so upset I forgot my camera but you can see some of the carnival costumes HERE residents of every age wore. Loved this bar down on the parade strip by the ferry terminal.
The cemetery in town is all above ground and has so many beautiful statues and colorful decor honoring their loved ones.
We did BB Q's on the boat and went into town for dinner a few nights. We loved Penny's restaurant CoMoNo and ate there twice and had fun at her rooftop bar upstairs afterwards. Great grilled fish and salads!
When we walked along the seawall we came across an area hit by a hurricane in 2005 and this hotel that just had a spearart.be project done. It was amazing!
Lastly, back on the boat at sunset. It was an amazing vacation but it was a little sad to see that their tourism is hurting so much. We saw places to rent from $60.00 a night, the food was great everywhere and we felt safe - not to mention it was like paradise!
Don't forget to leave a comment here to be entered to WIN 2 Large Clear Art Stamp Sets, a package of Fancy Chipboard Frames and Mixed Bottle Caps. I will announce a winner this Monday.
