December Reveals at APOS!

This months challenge to the Inspiration Team over at A PILE OF SCRAP! was to create a canvas. i was given a piece of riff raff, some chalkboard glimmermist and some beautiful purple smoochspritz.. Here is what i create. it was a lot of fun. i love how it ended with the whole 3D look.It is hard to see it in the picture but the way the canvas was painted originally (not by me) was with an non latex paint so therefore the sprays took a long time to dry. this happened to be a good thing cause then it allowed me to tilt the frame and let the chalk and spray to run across the canvas.. kind of gave the lower part of the canvas the 'blowing in the wind' kind of look.

the second canvas i made was  my Marathon canvas. it is a tribute of sorts to doing my first full marathon this fall. it was done with placing layers. i first started with some pages from the dictionary with words such as marathon, run, walk, achievement... as well as some pages out of the paper from PEI which listed all the marathoners registered for the run. i modge podged everything down and then i covered it with tissue paper from my sneaker box. once it was all dried i used a bit of the glimmer mist to give it a bit of life and sparkle. then it was the placing of pictures and trinkets and of course my medal.  a bit of distress ink along the edges and then i was completed!

so if you get a minute hop on over to the girls blogs or over to APOS! and check out the inspiration teams work for this month. i guarantee you won't be dissappointed!!!

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!!
