Good day! Valentine’s day is just around the corner & this has inspired me to create something sweet. The Canvas Corp Brands Crew has teamed up with the Words & Paintery Team with their January 2016 Challenge:
I love this color combination, & this month’s message. Here’s my Canvas Corp layout take on it:
How awesome is the Royal Blue & Big White Stripe paper? It really does give a big impact, & the best part is that all Canvas Corp papers are thick & can take layers & layers of mediums well. The Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists colors that I’ve used here are Barn Red, Graphite, Sapphire, & Tattered Leather. These colors are a great match to this month’s challenge.
Canvas Corp also has the best Canvas Sheets which come in an array of colors. You can even get the white or natural canvas sheets & add the color yourself. Some extra texture was added to the background with a couple of Cling Stamps. These are great quality, versatile & fun to use.
The addition of the strips of stars is one of my favourite parts of this layout, which came from the Royal Blue & White Stars paper. And of course the Black & Ivory Tea Cups Reverse paper is a favourite as well. The beautiful cups are so fitting with the sweet photo.
The layers behind the picture are Canvas Corp’s Black Paper Bags, C-Flute Kraft Paper, more strips of the stars paper & the canvas sheet as mentioned before. A piece of paper for journaling can be inserted in the black paper bag, & the Red Decorative Clothespin is the perfect little addition on top.
How cute is the cup on saucer that I’ve cut out from the Beans & Bags paper, & the “seal of approval” from the Coffee & Tea Labels on Ivory paper? The chocolate all over my daughter’s face is the seal of approval indeed!
Thanks so much for popping in &. You can check out the rest of the crew’s take of the challenge here. Enjoy the rest of your week. 🙂
