Beautiful!  Miss. Cellaneous, how did you do that?

Glad that everyone seems to like the horse wall art. I would love to say that it was terribly complex and I could only do it because I am so uber-talented, but that would be a giant fib.

The canvases are 16x20 and I already had them from a previous project. I covered the canvases with Amy Butler fabric just using a staple gun to attach to the back. I used an online template for the horse which I found at this wonderful website: http://www.pinkofperfection.com/2006/02/drawn_and_quartered.php.
The metal of the horse is roof flashing* that I got at Lowe's. It is really easy to work with and can be cut with a pair of desk scissors. I just traced the template on the metal using a sharpie. I attached each metal piece to the fabric using heavy duty craft glue. The trim is just some cording I found at Walmart attached with hot glue.

BEBG, I am so glad you like it. I loved making it. It looks great on your wall!!!

*If you are ever using roof flashing, be careful. It is often sold as a long roll for about $5. When you release the roll, it can spring open very quickly. The edges and corners are sharp! Having said that, it is a great medium to work with. Cuts easily, resists fingerprints, lightweight, etc. Have fun with it!
