Canvas and LO

Hi all... it's been a busy week here creatively and I've got about 5 or 6 projects on the go at the moment... and I'm loving it!
I finally managed to get some good light to photograph my canvas and LO from last weekends class with Yolande so here are the results :)
Canvas: The boys! The theme was masculine so I had to do a please with my sister since I don't have boys and she sent me some gorgeous photos of her hubby and son. I loved doing this project and it will be winging its way to by BIL for his birthday in October.

During the class I cut out the 'boys' letters from denim but when I got home they just didn't seem to work so I did them out of chipboard instead. I painted them and doodled in white pen... a new skill for me... here's a close up:

The next class was a titled 'Friends and Flowers'. I had the perfect photo of my DD's and I really enjoyed this class too.... what's not to enjoy about being childfree in a scrapbooking class??? I made another change to this LO as well.... sorry Yolande! ... originally the colours were black and white with loads of pastely coloured flowers but once I got home it just didn't seem right so I made a whole new set of embellishments and did it in black, white and red! Really love the colour combo and the whole LO came together really well!

As for the original embellishments... they have found their way onto another project! Will let you know how it turns out!


  1. Oh, I love that canvas! Stunning! The chipboard letters look great, it's a great technique to paint and use white pen. I've just finished a page and I did the same thing, LOL!

    The layout is lovely too - such a cute photo!

  2. Wow Shell...these projects of yours are just fab. Am loving your style too...your BIL will be gobsmacked by your pressie..its fantastic:)

    Don't ever apologise - love it when people take a project and make it there own. Love the red, black & white - and look at those stamps - knew you'd love them!
