Mixed Media Canvas

Now that we are heading toward the New Year, my mind goes directly to my resolutions. One of my resolutions is to clean up, simplify and make my scrap room pretty. I think I get more creative when my surroundings are pleasant and clean. So how about a little wall art?

I made these four "seasonal" 4x6 canvas art and left room for litle wallet size photos. I will line them up on my wall and not only have something I made to look at but also photos that I cherish.

I have Spring, Summer Fall and Winter. I used the Blick Studio stretched canvas on a 4x6 wood frame. I first painted the canvas then I started layering stencils, paper, foam stamps, and rubons.


I made these little tags to mount my photos and I matched them to the canvas.


 

 


These dont take a lot of time because they are 4x6, and you can make them any theme you want. For instance how about, Peace, Love, Happiness, and Art? That is my wish for the New Year.

Day 25 of 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

It's Day 25!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone!  Thank you for playing along with Beatriz from Amazing Grace and I.  We appreciate all of you and I want to thank for becoming a follower and leaving me such nice comments.

Today's Album is the Album that I am giving away!  I love the vintage paper from Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium collection.  In order to win this album you need to be a follower.  All the comments from 1 through 25 will be put in the bin for a random pick.  Good luck!







This is a pocket so that you can slip your tags, journaling or extra photos behind the clock.



This piece of acrylic has been emblossed and inked.  It makes a great easy page and adds interest to the album


This page has a pocket sewn onto the page to add extra photos and it also has a nice tag




This page has chipboard frames that I popped up so that you can slip either a photo in the frame or a tag.




The album was made with Bascially Bare. I love these albums because they come with different textured pages, in this case; the album has a canvas page, a felt page and chipboard pages.

For more pictures of this album go to my Youtube channel Kitsnbitscraps.

Thank you again for participating.  Be sure to go over to see what Bea has posted for Day 25.  Come back tomorrow - I will post the winner.  Merry Christmas and Happy Scrapping.

Day 22 of 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Merry Holidays everyone, and thank you for stopping by for Day 22 of our Christmas blog hop.

Today's inspiration album is another electic style album with a very intricate folding technique.  My girlfriend showed me how to do this and she found it from "just a few designs" so I'd like to give just a few designs credit you can check her out on you tube. 

I made this one a while ago and haven't used the folding technique since.  Anywho here is my version of this folding technique.  I personally do not know if I will do this again because the pages do not allow for much 3D embellishments and layers and I really like to add 3D.  If you add too many embellies then the pages do not close correctly.  Also there are A LOT of pockets so keep that in mind with the photos.

Please be sure to "hop" on over to Bea's blog Amazing Grace and see what she has for you today.






















I know that was a lot of pictures! Thank you for stopping by, see for Day 23!!
