Want2Scrap, Graphic 45, and Art Glitter Blog Hop!


Want2Scrap is teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Want2ScrapGraphic 45, and Art Glitter !



After you check out my project head to the Want2ScrapGraphic 45,  and Art Glitter blogs.  

It has been such a quick summer, it is half over and all I hear is back to school. I  have not had to time to catch up with a dear friend  and her darling little guy. So since I was thinking about them I decided to make a canvas for her new son Max. Proof that they have been on my mind...and after this post is done...I am going call and set up a lunch date.


These canvases are now my favorite projects to make!


Of course I also had to dig into some of the new CHA Summer Releases.  These Chipboard Angel Wings are one of my new favorites.


I used Clearsnap Smootch to paint some of the wooden stars. The Art Institute Glitter was perfect. I used it to great tri-dots all around the canvas. I also added it to the Mod Podge for a hint of sparkle throughout the canvas.


Of course the perfect base for all of these fun products were the gorgeous papers from Graphic 45. The Little Darlings release was absolutely perfect for this and gorgeous to boot!


Now you need to pop on over to Keely Yowler's Blog and see the fabulous creations she has to share! Remember, do forget to stop at the manufacturer blogs too!
