Hi all!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far - it is cold and rainy here, but I don't mind, that just gives me an excuse to hang out in my stamp room - lol! So, I finally can get back to Scrapbook Saturdays with this sample I made for my upcoming Scrapbooking on Canvas class. (POSTED ON SUNDAY THIS WEEK BECAUSE OF WCMD)This is not the actual one they will make but it is similar - this one is more for my home decor and has a proud place in my family room! These are pictures I took of the my three kids right before Zach went back to school - I love seeing my kids all together with smiles on their faces! These are some of my favorite ones so I want to display them. I also got to play with my BigShot dies for the leaves - I totally love that machine!!! I stamped the paper with the Sanded Background stamp before cutting them out so they really do look like leaves (click on the picture for a better view)And, of course, no project would be complete without some stampin' going on so you will see that I stamped on the canvas itself and then the Chipboard letters as well. All in all, I am very happy with how this came out and will be doing a few more so that I can hang a grouping on a very large wall that needs some personalization. There are some elements to this project that are not Stampin' Up! as they don't carry them - they are the paints, which are acrylic and a mixture of three different colors, the Mod Podge, which I used to seal the project, and the canvas itself. Everything else is though!! I will leave you with the recipe - I am off to pick out my papers and pictures to take on my trip - this will require some planning since you now have to sell your firstborn in order to take luggage on the airplane and I am trying to keep mine to a minimum - but gosh, I have to take some things, it IS a scrapbook cruise, lol! So, I will be busy doing that most of the day but will be back tomorrow with another class project to share! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
