Patriotic Canvas

Remember this 3" x 3" patriotic page I made for a local art group swap? They were swapped out a few weeks ago and that night's project was to assemble them together on a canvas. Since I was unable to make the meeting, the gals painted my canvas and I received it about a week ago.

I arranged the squares from everyone on the canvas and glued them down with Zip Dry (love that stuff!). The canvas is 10" square and painted an antiqued brown. The glass knob at the top came from JoAnn's $1 bins. The center square was made by Trisha - she used a felt star and added all kinds of do-dads, including letter beads spelling out each of our names. Each square is so unique but they all coordinate well andI l ove how it all came together!
