Pleasant Sunday Afternoon

It is so good to have some time to do a bit of scrapping again! We recently spent a lovely weekend in Sydney visiting Lloyd and Jodie. It doesnt happen often enough!
This is a quick layout (to get my mojo back!) for the Frosted Friday Challenge, to use only patterned paper.

These gorgeous papers are from the Kaisercraft  Lake House collection. The frame was cut from the Fancy Frames cricut cartridge.
Enjoy this wet scrapping Sunday!

21st Birthday canvas

My brother asked me if I would do one of my "arty" photo canvases for my nephews 21st? How could I refuse?!! LOL!! Anyway, it has been a nice break from cutting, cutting and more cutting stuff for my SENZ class packs!
I hope he likes it!
I started with a 18" x 24" canvas, glued down strips of patterned paper and then painted over it all with Lumiere paints. I then stamped on background stamps and the brick mask with texture paste. Next, I put down the photos and then added the embellishments. Nik is a keen surfer so I tried to create something that reflected this at least a little, e.g chipboard swirls, pumice texture paste and gesso.
I am wanting to get some of the challenges done over at Challenge Me Happy One year Anniversary Hoopla, so I am putting this in Norine's challenge - a birthday layout. A rather large layout, I know!! And she may decide it doesnt fit the criteria!
Now, I am going to stoke the fire, because the weather is yuk today and start dyeing metres of seambinding for the class kits.
