Cross Canada Blog Hop -10/15/12- My Creations Canvas Journal

Welcome to our October Cross Canada Blog Hop! This month our project is the My Creations Canvas Journal. This product can be found on page 132 of the Current Idea Book, purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant for only $8.95.

In this hop, you will see how our Crafty Canadian Consultants have decorated their Canvas Journals! We hope you enjoy our blog hop today!

Today our blog hop starts in Nova Scotia with me, Michelle S. So if you are just starting our Hop then you are in the right place. This is a circular hop, so where ever you start, we are happy to have you follow along. We hop to inspire you with our creations.

I really like the La Belle Vie paper packet, so I used it as my inspiration for this design. First I distressed the whole canvas journal with Blush Ink. Then using stamps from 3 different stamp sets, January's SOTM "Happy Valentine's",Jardin, and a retired stamp set "Butterfly Wings" and using multiple color inks, Slate, Ruby, Blush and Black, as well as Sweetleaf Markers, and a retired Tulip Marker to create the random stamping. After I had all my images on the canvas, I then distressed it further with the Slate ink.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Joanne's Jags Scrapin Corner blog.

Here is a complete list of the blog hop in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own version of My Creations Canvas Journal. Join us again on November 5th when we showcase a series of 3 Christmas Cards made from one of exclusive lines of My Reflections Paper Packs.
