Joy Burlap Canvas

Although it is a little early to be thinking about Christmas, I like to make a few projects early that I can either give as gifts or use as ideas for classes.  This summer I had run across some burlap wrapped canvases in craft stores (and I found some fun denim ones as well) that I decided I wanted to play with. 

As I looked through the Holiday catalog I decided I wanted to use some of the Home for Christmas designer series paper on one of the canvases, specifically the Silent Night musical design.  From there I added elements from the Hello December 2015 Project Life card collection and accessory kit and several other elements.

I wrapped some 1" Tip Top Taupe dotted lace trim, silver baker's twine and Cherry Cobbler baker's twine around some card stock that was covered with adhesive to create some flowers and swirls.  Then I added elements to decorate them like basic rhinestones, metal rimmed pearls and Winter wonderland snowflake embellishments.

I threw in some corrugated paper, distressed my paper with ink pads directly on the designer paper and Project Life card and also added ink to the Lucky Stars embossing folder and used it as a stamp on my paper.

Rolled a couple corners...

added some buttons...

And came up with this....
Here is a video about the new Hello December 2015 Project Life kit as well!
