Who ever said that a LO has to have a photo on it..Some of the most beautiful LO's we have seen do not have pictures. But the message it portrays is inspiring, as in this beautiful LO created by our very own Jan Conners (Msjan1). It is actually a piece of art created on canvas. Imagine this piece displayed on a sofa table sitting in a beautiful decorative Wrought Iron book stand. beautiful.
Jan describes how she created what was once a plain white 12×12 canvas that she picked up from the clearance aisle at Michael's.She used the die cut lamppost and the word inspire to complete Robin's SGC October Challenge. The lamppost was painted with metallic gold paint and then embossed with black embossing powder. Some of the embossed powder was rubbed off for a distressed look. Then Jan added vellum undeeath the lamps and filled the lamps with GA to make them look like glass. The inspire was painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint.
The papers & Tim Holtz bookplate were from Robin as a prize for winning the RR Challenge last month. Thank you, Robin. The RAK was gorgeous Jan exclaims!! She also added some lace and ribbon from her stash as well as past Swirlydoos kits. The Prima flowers and bling were from her stash, Robin, and past Swirlydoos kits. The ?Prima leaves were also from her stash. The key is a Tattered Angels embellie from a past kit. The canvas was inked with Tim Holtz distress inks and then stamped with a Prima stamp. Jan then added the fence she purchased at Joanne's after painting it with more Tim Holtz crackle paint.
Wow..So many wonderful techniques used to create this wonderful Canvas!! A refreshing alteative to the traditional scrapbooking page. We love it Jan. Congrats on the challenge creatively done!!

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."October 18, 2010 at 4:10 am #65572October 18, 2010 at 6:51 am #65574
