Swimmingly...on Sunday...

Note: these are not scrapbook pages!
These are actual canvas art canvases
the kind with a wood frame & canvas stretched over it
that normal people paint on...!


I have spent an entire day
after church that is
working on these...





They are art canvases
decoupaged and decorated
with scrapbook paper
stamped images
wooden embellishments
glass
fibers
and even a little bit of OKI beach sand!
Those big empty spaces
are actually hand-made photo pockets!
All most supplies are Close to My Heart
(thanks Geri! Ya can see I put that paper pack
to good use! ; )  )

Whew.
They were to have been a gift
for a baby shower
yesterday.
Oops.
I think
they are worth the wait! 

I won't mention
how many times I cut that crab
(and how many wordy durds I said while doing it!)
NOT for babies ears, I assure you!
But
they are finished!
I will deliver them
to the parents to be
sometime this week
or next.

For now,
it's time for a rum drink
a good book
and some rest!

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
Blessings,

What a lovely idea Sharon...You will also have to make a notice board - cover it with plastic and stick your embellies on - I bet that would look good too...Nice job
Thanks for all your kind words as always
