Scrap Canvas 'Wall Art' ??







Well...it probably doesn't class as art...but they're certainly better than a plain old wall!!

Have now canvas 'scrapped' the kids as well as us, and decided to go for a 'now and then' scheme so 2 photos each,one fairly recent and one as a child.
Was easy for son and DD1, but was an agony trying to find a good recent photo of DD2 as she avoids the camera...or pulls a face...or pulls a hoodie up etc.etc....but after hours of searching the computer did manage it.
A very economic way of adding 'art' to the wall as well [cheapskate...me!!].
The canvases were only £1.49 each in Dunhelm Mill,all 4 canvases done with a lovely paper pack from Oyster Stamps that cost £2 [and there's enough left for a scrapbook page as well] plus some K & Co embellishments and brads from my stash.
I think I may be getting addicted...have found some more canvases in the roof...p'raps I'll do the dogs next.

You have done such a fabulous job here Jacky - I love how all the layouts are different, but they all co-ordinate with the papers etc. you've used - what a great set - way to go! I really should start scraping the kids :) xxx

Jacky these have come out so well, you really should enter them in to a mag as a great way to scrap on a budget! Excellent.
