Thank you for being here G45ers. Today we have Aneta Matuszewska bringing us a perfectingly distressed French Country – DCE canvas and tag. Through her use of gesso and ink, Aneta has complemented the rustic aesthetic of the paper with a beautiful vintage look that makes it feel like this could have been a treasure rescued from a trunk out in an old barn after years of being lost and forgotten. Discover it for yourself below!
French Country Canvas & Tag
By Aneta Matuszewska
“Hello my dear blog friends,
Since I saw this amazing collection I knew I’d be making a shabby french-style canvas and tag. The outcome didn’t surprise me because that was exactly what I had in mind.
Crafting with G45 is like having your dreams come true:
To make your project shabbier, add a very thin layer of gesso on everything.
I’ve splashed a few drops of black ink for more vintage look.
Graphic 45 Supplies:
Thank you so much for all the love and have a crafty day!
Xoxo” ~Aneta Matuszewska
