Scrapbooking Revisited

nadya & kelly purkeyThe day after the storm I drove to Crop & Create in Markham to take a class with awesome Ms Kelly Purkey. I had not scrapped in a while, so it was nice to plunge in and learn some new techniques.

The Countdown Has Begun!

Beautiful winter day. Snowed in. Kids home. Created all day.

The countdown to the Spring One of a Kind Show is on. Two months less a day — but who’s counting! The next couple of weeks I will blog more often, say less, show more. Please tell me what you think!

Canvas crazy!

If you are close to me, whether you like it or not, you are probably going to end up with a canvas from me. I love experimenting with different themes and really try to personalize the project to reflect the individual I’m making it for.

For my Mom on Mother’s Day, I created a canvas using a beautiful print by Toronto artist Nancy Falconi that I purchased at the GACAG in Sutton. My Mom loves elephants and so I chose the word “strength” to be the simple statement, reflecting her and one of the themes elephants symbolize. I used a wooden cradle frame with a chunky 2″ frame. It can stand alone or be hung on the wall.

On his birthday, I gave my buddy Mr Rock Star a Pearl Jam canvas made on canvas board. If you’re into Pearl Jam, this will make sense to you. If you aren’t — you should be. I chose this shape of board because I thought it would be conducive to the stick man. There is a lot going on in this canvas. The bigger the fan, the more you’ll see.

 

This weekend, Miss Know-It-All and I are off to the bustling metropolis of Buffalo to attend the Creative Keepsakes Convention to take some classes, volunteer and of course — shop!
