Authentique Paper and Canvas Corp are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Canvas Corp products!
After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Canvas Corp blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!
Welcome Authentique fans! Today is my turn to join the fabulous Authentique-Canvas Corp. Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share this project with you today, which literally.....went to the dog!
Daisy is my special Saint. We rescued her in 2005, when she was 18 months old. She had been locked in a backyard for most of her life to that point, with little access to her human family. She came to us just dieing to be loved, and we loved her right back!
She's got the best expressions, and she's such an original. Which means she's perfect for Authentique's "Original Collection".
To create the shadowbox effect, I used the backside of the "Stretched Canvas" and "Stretched Burlap" mini-canvases, and covered the edges with paper and more burlap.
For the roses, I cut a circle of burlap, and used the pre-made "Canvas Minis" circles. I cut a spiral in each and twirled away. The leaves are cut from more burlap, free-hand.
To create the burlap ruffle, I took 1" wide strips cut from a 12x12 "Burlap Fabricpage" and crunched and glued them around the edge of the canvas back.

When I received my box full of great stuff from Canvas Corp, I really have to think what to made with it... after a little time to think... I knew I wanted to make with my photo tray, a big mini album ! I decided to use the "Peaceful" collection because it really looks great in my home, and I made this album for my hubby so I didn't want it to be too feminine!
Here is the front of the album- I covered the whole photo tray and I used pieces of chipboard for the cover. The & sign is a piece of big wood
The inside of my big mini album
I printed directly on the patterned paper
The little stretched canvas is great to use in the tray!
I don't if I've mentioned this before, but my mother in law, she's 86... she makes these beautiful doilies for me all the time! Isn't she great?!
