Canvas Art

Many of you have seen these as you shop at the store, but we never did get them all posted out here, nor have we explained their purpose.

Carolyn & Annette saw that in the Ranger booth at the CHA last winter, they had challenged a lot of the designers to show how they distress. People like Heidi Swapp, Tim Holtz and others took an 8x8 canvas and decorated them. They had been given the additional challenge of using only certain colors of Ranger products. The display was quite outstanding. This caused Carolyn to think and to challenge our design team to do something with an 8x8 canvas. The only instructions our team had was to do something with the canvas.

As you can see, each one is different and each one is so cool-each in it's own way.
Several people have asked about how to do things on canvas and we have started to put classes together to teach some of these canvases. The first class is on the Owl Canvas.

The artists for the canvas art are (left side top to bottom): Sherri, Heidi, Annette, Susie, Isla (right side top to bottom): Betty, Brook, Joanna, Carolyn, Mary Lou

I think the the canvas challenge was one of the most exciting challenge that we have done. It really pushed us out of our comfort zones.

I can't tell you how many times I wanted to ask about the canvas was but didn't want to ask a stupid question! Nice job, ladies!

how could it be a stupid question Kimmy P? They are a little different up there in front, I would think it would be reasonable to ask questions about them....
