Scrapbooking is an art!


I finished the canvas scrapbooking dealie that I've been talking about for months. I saw one of these in a scrapbooking store in the Sacramento area. The sample at the store was advertising a class. Because I'm not in Sacramento, I decided to see if I could make one without paying the $20 for the class. The silly thing is it was SO easy! The canvas is 12-by-12 and was on sale for half off at Joann's. I printed my own picture and used scrapbooking stuff I had in my stash. The whole project took about 10 minutes to complete and most of that time was spent looking at my pink papers! Now that I know how easy it is, I simply must do about a million of them. It took me longer to print out the 8 by 10 of Grace than to complete the whole project. If you can scrapbook, you can do this. I simply mounted my photo on paper and added the ribbon. To stick it on the art canvas, I used Red Liner Super Sticky Tape. Instead of using paint to give the canvas edge some color, I sponged some ink in a matching color along the edges. What fun!

Wish I could take the credit, but it was the Goddess of Paper, Carey who created this little goodie.

I guess I had a hand in creating Gracie.
