I wanted to use all the photos Celine sent me so even if she wants to take them out of the pocket and use them for something else, they are all embellished and ready to go!

layout by candice mclean
working with the canvas is totally inspiring me to try new techniques. here i used a lot of modge podge, scraps of some old basic grey paper, acrylic paint, texture stamps, charcoal pencil, basic grey rub-on, chipboard (backed some of the papers to give more dimension), a daisy d's file holder and ink. lots of layering here. love how it turned out. hope you do too jennifer.

Cheryl sent me a bunch of beach pictures from February... it just makes me realize how blessed we are to live in So Cal when other states are buried in snow. Though this is MY March page this is really my February assignment to be done in March.
I used Prima flowers, packaging, denim and crystal swirls for this page. Now I'm ready for my March assignment that I'll do in April... :)
Thanks for taking this journey with us!

It was so fun to design this layout, as she had supplied me with a great tittle "37 things to do before I turn 38" (most of which I want to add to my list of" to do's" )
my only dilemma was how would I get so much journaling on a 8x8 and still have room for all the other "stuff"
making a layout on canvas also brought about a little voice that kept reminding me- use fabric!
or something from your sewing kit, and that's when I realized I could list all her to do's on a spool!
Here's a picture of the spool unraveled , when we all meet to bind this fabulous book I am hoping we can attatch this to the binding or pin to the canvas.
I feel so very blessed to be aprt of this amazing, creative group, cant wait to see what shows up next.

I thoroughly enjoyed scrapping Angela's fun New Year's photos. I wish I could include them all. I reduced the photos in size so I could get several on the canvas page. On three of the photos, I printed doubles and cut out the images of one photo and placed it on top of the other to give it a 3-D look. I love my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists . . . instant color on the canvas. I love that Angela started off her "A Year in the Life of 'Me'" canvas book with New Year's photos. What fun!

Holy cow! I finally got my February layout done!! I had fun making a project with Elena's picture - and I'm in it! Tee hee!
Let me preface all of this by saying that this project is a little intimidating - not only because I have never worked in a canvas book like this before, but also because I am in a group with all these fabulous famous scrapping women, and then there is little ol' me. ;) I am honored to be a part of this project though, and I can't WAIT to see all the end results!!
Anyhow, Cheryl, Elena and I have a silly custom that has now become tradition every time we see each other, we take a "squishy face" picture! This is our most recent one from CHA in Anaheim... I painted the canvas with Kaiser paints, and then added some embellies! I think my favorite part of the page is the Hambly transparency under the flower button that I shrunk with my heat gun. And the new Prima flowers... I'm loving those too!
we decided to trim our pages to a 9x8 format leaving an inch for binding at the end of the year. the design area measures 8x8. something to keep in mind when designing your pages - anything in the 1" border could possibly be covered once bound.
february layouts soon to post.
