In this post: What do you get when you add gold and glitter to an ampersand on canvas? You make Gold Glitter Ampersand Canvas Art, of course!

Okay, I have to say this is one of my favorites in our recent plethora of gold projects! I don’t know what it is about the lowly ampersand, but I just love it! Its shape, its presence. Love! Anyway, we figured we were glittering up a storm already, so why not create a little art too.

  1. Shannon and Dean, I LOVE this!!! That frame is totally gorgeous, by the way, and the idea of the glitter ampersand is creative and cool! Pinning and sharing on my FB page today. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    1. Hi Abby. If in not gentle with the canvas, as in if I bang it or shake it, yes the gold flakes off. But it doesn’t if it’s just hanging there or propped up. 🙂
