Christmas Canvas

Today I'd like to share the last of my Christmas projects for my LSS. I LOVE going to flea markets and finding unique things to use on my projects and really wanted to incorporate some vintage items into a project for the store. I started with a canvas and built this tree with layers of fabric, tulle, and paper, then decorated it with flea market found objects, such as broken jewelry, vintage buttons, old coins, and antique lace.

Always an Adventure

Today I did something I haven't done in a very, very long time. I scrapped a LO, just for me, just because I wanted's hoping that this goes back to being a regular, daily occurrence like it used to be!

Always an Adventure:

The journaling reads "Today Mommy and Skylar woke up and said: 'I think we'll go ride a camel today. Sometimes that's just how we roll."

Christmas Mega Book

I love doing albums, but I hesitate to call them 'mini albums' because mine never turn out to be mini! For this Christmas project I wanted a big, fun surface. I decided to break out of the 12x12 mold and designed a book that is 10x15". The pages are custom cut wood. I wanted to mix together several different vintage-inspired Christmas lines, including Webster's Pages, Pink Paislee, and Girls Paperie. Then I added fun elements like fabric, tulle, vintage tinsel and lace, and that cute glittery reindeer!


Here are some of the pages:

I will post some more of the pages tomorrow!

This is a project I did for the Christmas release at Anthologies. I started with a plain wood frame and played with gesso, paint, and artists cement to build all of this fabulous texture and structure.

Angels with One Wing:

The quote reads "We are each of us angels with only one wing. And only by embracing each other can we truly learn how to fly."

My New Year's Resolution

Clearly, my New Year's Resolution needs to be to blog more!

Hi scrappy buddies! I know it's been a long time!

2010 was a wild ride - I found my dream job, as a designer/instructor at Anthologies, my LSS. That job kept me so busy that I had no time to scrap for myself, much less time to blog about what I was scrapping! Sadly, however, Anthologies is gone. The store closed and with it my dream job is gone. Although I hate this turn of events, I am anxious to get back to scrapping for myself (and blogging what I scrap) and I'm excited for what the future holds.

Becca Turner, my fellow Anthologies designer, and I are teaming up to continue teaching and bringing you more exciting projects! Please visit our blog to sign up for our newsletter and watch for news of upcoming events.

I'm off to buy myself some new image editing software, then I promise to create, photograph and blog for all of 2011!

More to come soon...
