Putting Left Overs To Good Use

If you have not joined Scraps of Color what are you waiting for?  If you are on Scraps of Color and are not joining an event you are missing a lot of excitement!  I recently joined a few swaps and the ladies are creating awesome high end projects!  First let me share what I've been working on.  My inspiration started with Tiare's Art Party.  Although late coming in, I was determined to make it.  This canvas journal was left over from a kit.   The cover was painted and I selected paper to stamp a few clocks, used modeling paste with a brick template on the middle left, sprayed some Tattered Angels mist all over and distressed the edges.

Check out the back cover, which was inspiration from my blog Papercrafting Paradise.  Guess what?  There are 16 pages in all so you know a Sistah is inspired to complete it right?  I used watercolor pencils with this one.  It seemed a little difficult even with a coat of Gesso.  Maybe I'll try the acrylic paints on my next page.

Let me go back to what I was telling you earlier, because it all started with this blank canvas by Recollections.  I participated in the Altered Prima Journal swap and my partner Tia B's color was pink.  This kit had lots of pink and cute chipboard embellishments to work with.  Everything was used except the canvas journal.  So do you think I put the left over canvas in good use? 
By the way, this was the Altered Prima Journal made for Tia B.  Kevin Hart may say "Turn it Up", I say pull out those kits and "Use it Up"!

Thanks for stopping by, 


  1. Love it and I think I have one if those kits from Michaels (picked it up on clearance) gotta pull it out. Thanks for the inspiration, great work as usual!

  2. Great way to use up tthe leftovers! Very beautifully done. I always say scrappers are the original upcyclers ;) I just might have to pick up one of those canvas albums I keep eyeballing at the craft store.
