Mixed Media Canvas

Recently, I have been on a pinning spree on Pinterest. I saw a pin that was a mixed media canvas that I loved, and that is what inspired this project. I used my paper scraps, Mod Podge, paint, ink, stamps, book pages, washi tape, vinyl, and a few different Cricut cartridges. This one was sent to a friend for her birthday, and the quote was one that she had picked out. I absolutely love how it turned out and I hope that she does too! I think that I will be making some more pretty soon!! Happy crafting!

Silly Boys-Layout #1

It seems like it's been forever since I've been scrapping and crafting! I had a few minutes this weekend and I put together this layout. I did have the pictures and paper picked out and it had been sitting on my desk for quite sometime. But as I was cleaning off my desk, I decided to get this one finished! These pictures are from last Easter. All I wanted to do was to take a picture of my three boys, all dressed up for Easter. Of course they were all sugared up from the goodies in their basket, so they had to get the sillies out. I got more pictures of them like this, than I did nice, sweet smiles, perfect looking angel pictures! But that is who they are and I want to remember them like this too! All the paper is from Echo Park boy collection. The banner is just strips of scrap paper, baker's twine, and my tiny stapler. All done in about 20 minutes! I think that I will have to do this more often. Take a few minutes to pick out the photos, then the paper, and when I have about a half hour to sit down, I can put the layout together. I've been so busy lately that my husband was jokingly trying to take away my craft room for lack of use! That motivated me to get in there and do something, lol!!! I also finished up a couple of more layouts and hopefully I will have some time in the next couple of days to show you those. It's nice to be back and thanks for hanging in there with me! Happy crafting! Pin It
