Altered Canvas Apron

Hello creatives, Sheila Rumney here to show you just how easy it is to create wearable art that is just your style using the Burlap and Canvas Apron.  Aprons aren’t just for cooking, you can use these wearable art aprons to your next artist retreat, to hang or display in your home or while crafting.  For this apron, I gathered vintage lace, handkerchief, millinery, buttons, burlap, Plain Jane Baseboard and assorted Glimmer Mists.   By using the Plain Jane Baseboard and Glimmer Mist I was able to easily change the color of the vintage millinery to coordinate.Step 1: Wet the vintage millinery then combine Plain Jane Baseboard in Sandy Beach and Atlantic Glimmer MistContinue to apply to achieve desired look.  Let dry.Step 2: Paint on Copper Token Glimmer Mist around the edges. Let dry.Step 3: Start sewing handkerchief, burlap and millinery on the Burlap and Canvas Apron.  Then continue to embellish with vintage finds, lace, and buttons to complete.Supplies needed:
Burlap and Canvas Apron
Assorted Glimmer Mist and Plain Jane Baseboard Paints
Canvas Corp Burlap
lace, millinery, vintage buttons, embellishments, thread and needle.
I really love how this apron turned out just to change the color of the vintage millinery.
You will be amazed at how combining different colors of Glimmer Mist with lace, fabric, burlap and millinery can customize your next art project.Enjoy creating!
