I am a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful and energetic children. Crafting is my form of timeout and quiet time.

I have been meeting with some other ladies weekly to do some creative projects at Erlinda's house. This week Erlinda found a Canvas work of art that she liked so much, that she shared the pictures with me. So we both decided to see if we can copy it with our own flare added to them. The canvas is approximately 11x14. I added a base card stock to hide the canvas. I also used the beautiful black designer paper that I got out of Erlinda's paper stack. We did cut the letters with the Storybook Cricut Cartridge. I printed on the computer the verse on the bottom left, onto vellum. I added 1/2" solid black ribbon across the whole canvas and added some trinkets to it. I did add some red Stickles the the center of the circles on the black card stock. It gives it a subtle look of color to the paper. I cut the tags from Tags Bags Boxes and More cartridge. I think I cut them at 5" tall. They have to be big enough to hold a wallet size picture. I also inked all of the light card stock with Tim Holtz distressing ink. The pictures on the left side had a very white background, so I used the same distressing ink and inked the background so it wouldn't stand out so much. I added black with white polka dot ribbon on the tag. I also added photo corners with Stampin Up's Photo corner punch, it softened the look of the picture a bit. The picture tags are actually sitting in a pocket, which is really cool. You can add more pictures as you collect them. I think this was a great project to do. I started this Yesterday and finished it this evening. I think it took me a total of 5 hours to complete.
I hope you all have a great Tuesday evening. Please leave your comment, I would love to hear what you think.
