A Canvas Portrait

Hi there!

Wow - a whole 2 months has gone by since my last posting! So sorry about that but much has gone on and keeps me occupied ... and I have to say my mojo definitely left me in search of warmer weather!!!  Hahaha. We have also been extremely busy painting the house - we have one room left to do before we hit the basement!

I have one particularly exciting announcement that I'd like to make before I continue with my posting and that is my husband, son Josh and myself officially became Canadian citizens last week!  Finally after 12 years in Canada we became official - a very exciting and momentous occasion for us! :)

Well I've been wanting to do a bit of scrapbooking recently and I have so many school portrait photos that still sit in their packets!  So I bought 3 8x10 artist canvases and decided to 'scrap' each of the boys onto a canvas to put up on the wall instead of just putting the photos into a frame.

So here is Jacob - this is his Grade 1 photo.  I pulled out the blue & orange stripes in his shirt as my choice of colours and papers to work with.  I really love how it turned out - pretty simple but just enough to highlight the photo.  Can't fancy it up with flowers or the like so twill ribbon and buttons, along with staples, was the choice of embellishments!

Thanks for stopping in!  I appreciate your visits very much and thank you should you take the time to leave me a comment.

Until next time .... whenever that may be!!!  :)
