Teachers gifts

Hi folks and today I thought I would share my teachers gifts from this year.  If you had seen a previous post from What's on your work desk Wednesday you will recognise these canvasses.


This is a 6" canvass with frame from my local craft shop.  I have painted the frame white then sanded it and added Vintage photo distress ink to give a shabby chic feel.  The canvass is painted red with Fired brick distress stain then I've added red gingham card from Kanban.  The apple is a sizzix die and "Teachers cannot live by apples alone," was printed on the computer.  I've then brought it all together with a little distressing again with Vintage photo.  Together with this canvas a bottle of wine was wrapped and tagged with "Grapes help too!"  I have it on good authority that teachers enjoy a wee drop of wine to unwind at the end of school term.  LOL.  Where as parents need a drop throughout the holidays!  :)
