LOVE Canvas! :)

I love love love using canvas on my projects. Back in March I wrote an article about using canvas on your layouts and cards. I loved seeing how others used canvas too. Click here to view that article.

Here's the layout I made for that article:


I mainly used the canvas as an embellishment and it even is placed kinda in the background. I lightly spritzed it with ink and stamped on it. Then layered it with all the embellishments around the photos.

Here are some close up's:



I used the fabulous Bella Doilies stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. LOVE this set! The papers are from My Mind's Eye. You can find the complete supply list here.

Life seems to be getting back to normal around here. Last night I booked my flight and hotel for a vacation to Maine this summer! I am super excited about...I've never been there before. Anything I just HAVE to do while I'm there?

Well, as always...thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

Your page is great! Where in Maine are you going? I was up there for the night over the weekend with my Mom! We go a lot during the summer, too. If you like lobster, there are SO many fabulous places to go! LOL! If you are in southern ME you can walk the Marginal Way and spend some time at Perkins Cove...Wells is covered with fabulous antique shops (and my favorite beach, too!)...and Arundal has a great flee market!
