All Racing Blog Hop


Welcome to the All Racing Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the start of the 2013 Nascar Season. I love racing in any form and I found some wonderful crafty ladies who share that love with me. We have all created a project having something to do with any form of racing.





Our wonderful sponsor for this hop is, Nikki over at http://www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com/



She has graciously offered a $25.00 gift certificate to her store. To be eligible to win this you must leave a comment on all the blog posts.

My project today I made a 
Canvass wall hanging of Kasey Kahne using pictures I got off Yahoo images.


I painted the canvass black and then covered it with checkered patterned paper


I wrapped red gross-gain ribbon around the sides using hot glue.



I matted the photos on red photo mats then adhered them to the canvass.

I off set the photos to give it some interest and to fit the pictures best.


I painted the back of 3 Glass accents or bobbles with red glitter nail polish.


I adhered the glass accents with Hot Glue and that finished off the canvass.


Thanks for racing by make sure you speed over to Ashley's Blog.

  4. My husband is a die hard Jeff Gordon fan. This would make a neat gift for him. I could include pictures of the reces he went to. NASCAR session is when I escape to my scrap table. Too much yelling ;)

  8. I have seen this canvas idea before and keep forgetting about it! Thanks for the reminder! I really like the ribbon around the edge being the same color as the mats so it all coordinates beautifully. The nail polish gems are just perfect! Great job ~ Go Smoke! lol
