“Mum’s Canvas”

As you know if you read my blog, I am flat out with my Age Care course and not having much time to play in my scrap space ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I am enjoying the course and finished Module 5 Assessment ๐Ÿ™‚

I have had the flu this week and not feeling that great, also my Aunty passed away and I was unable to take mum to her funeral ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I was feeling a bit better today and I was itching to do something crafty. I had some photos of my mums family and I wanted to put them onto a canvas for her to brighten up her room and hopefully cheer her up ๐Ÿ™‚

The canvas I decided on was quite large and I wanted to have a few photos on it! I decided on the four that looked the best and off I went ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I painted it all over roughly with some Kaiser blue pain then I had fun adding some layers and texture with some stamps and texture paste. I had fun using a Kaiser mask, crafters workshop template, and some bubble wrap to get some depth ๐Ÿ™‚ I used some Tim Holtz chipboard, D-Lish flowers and bits and bobs from my stash as well ๐Ÿ™‚

004ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  I used these family photos, taken at a family gathering a few weeks ago. As mum doesn’t remember she has photo albums in her wardrobe, I thought this would brighten her room up and she can see it everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

005The flower cluster is gorgeous flowers from http://d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au/ย  I buy white ones and then I just colour them with Distress Stain and Glimmer mist to match my project ๐Ÿ™‚ The Tim Holtz chippy and the leaves I bought from a couple of lovely sellers at the Aussie Scrap Garage Group of FB ๐Ÿ™‚

I am hoping to do a bit more scrapping will see what happens ๐Ÿ™‚
