“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 😦  I am enjoying the course and finished Module 5 Assessment πŸ™‚

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 😦  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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚Β  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 πŸ™‚ I used some Tim Holtz chipboard, D-Lish flowers and bits and bobs from my stash as well πŸ™‚

004Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  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 πŸ™‚

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

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

“One Little Word -Feburary Challenge!”

So glad its Feb, that means another challenge for my One Little Word class with Ali Edwards!

This month was a surprise and I have really enjoyed doing my challenge! This month was to create an inspiration board about our word πŸ™‚ Cutting out from magazines things that appeal to us and arranging them in a collage as a layout or a canvas! I chose a canvas as it came up really great and will be cheerful on my wall πŸ™‚

As I don’t buy much in the way of magazine except scarp ones I used images from some old ones I had to show what inspires me to create! πŸ™‚


I love, story telling, family history, I am a product junkie, photography,journaling, artists and layouts! πŸ™‚ If you click on the image it will enlarge and give you a closer look!! I used Mod Podge to glue and seal it and finished with a border of Washi! πŸ™‚

How are you going with your one little word project?
