Give any current photo a time worn look
by creating this monogrammed antique photo canvas. All the pictures we take
nowadays are so crisp and clear. It is a complete contrast to how pictures used
to look back in the day. While it’s great to have clear photos, a vintage image
is nice to add to your collection. Debbie Saenz created this adorable project
using Apple Barrel paint and Mod Podge. This is a very simple project that will
only take an hour to make.
