Your Hands

I got some canvases the other night, and just couldn't wait to work with them. They are 12x16, which is bigger than I normally work with. After driving home from my parents the other day, and listening to JJ Hellers CD for about 3 hours straight I knew that this was the first canvas I wanted to complete! I finished it in one night...... thats amazing considering the amount of layering, embossing, glazing, stamping, painting and texturing that went into it.....not that you can really see all of that in the pic :) I don't do enough art that is just for me, so when I do I really pour into it. I have another canvas planned with psalm 31 on it....... just have to find the right paper as the jumping off point. Here's the song that inspired the canvas, hope you are blessed by it. (you can click on the pics to make them bigger)

Not sure yet where I am going to put this canvas, I love how it turned out, but I am not sure if it goes with my house :)

Show the Love

In honor of Valentine's Day right around the corner Everything Scrapp'n thought it would be a great time to do a layout about a loved one. The challenge is titled "Show the Love". It should focus on your relationship with a loved one, or you can showcase a special relationship of a friend or family member. The prize is a $20 gift certificate to the store. Enter your layout by loading your creation in the gallery of our online forum & then link it back to the store blog post by 11:59 PM eastern time on Sunday, February 7th

I have scrapped this pic before but I just love it! this time I went to and played around with the photo effects, I settled on a old Holga camera effect. The bright papers go great with the dark black and white pic

The other night I was eating some yummy Dagoba Dark Chocolate squares and decided to keep the pretty pieces of gold foil that they were wrapped in..... this one ended up as a scalloped heart rubbed with antique linen distress stickles ;)

and of course, a quick little card for Valentine's Day with my scraps :)

The rest of the design team has some inspiration for you so hop along to their blogs. We're all using Nikki Sivils papers from the Everything Scrapp'n Store. Make sure you visit each of them & leave them some "love".





Thanks for Stopping by :)
