A Twitterpated Canvas

Well, almost a canvas ;) I just need to mount this scrapbook page on a 12x12 canvas with Mod Podge. But you get the idea. When I was working on this week's Try Stampin' on a Tuesday Sketch, I realized that the sketch would make a really great scrap page. And I promised you all that I'd make one. So here it is :)

I was excited to use the Twitterpated DSP because the pink and blue tones worked well with my little girl's picture. That's her school picture from last September when she was about 5-1/2 years old. We're moving to a new home in about 6 weeks and I'm super excited to display this new canvas there :)

Tips & Tricks:

*Do you see those gorgeous little flourishes in the background? I used the large flourish from Flowering Flourishes and stamped them on the Pink Pirouette card stock in the same color.
*The Twitterpated DSP has some very varied patterns. I love how I could incorporate sweet flowers into the butterflies, but could use the a more neutral grey pattern as a background for my daughter's photo.
*I used the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder on some Vellum Card Stock (not the Paper, the embossing folder will just chew it up, it has to be the Card Stock) for the top and bottom butterflies.
*I find I don't use the strips of adhesive Rhinestones enough but they were perfect for the centers of my butterflies. Adds a bit of bedazzle to my canvas :)
*Some patterns in the Designer Paper have a vintage feeling to them. The Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon is perfect for vintage projects with a modern touch.
*I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score my Baja DSP on both ends. This gave me a raised piece of DSP for my journaling.

I hope you like my canvas. My daughter was tickled pink when she saw it ;) I hope this also showed you how easily you can turn a card sketch into a scrapbooking sketch. 'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
