Monday Jillibean Canvas

Happy Monday

How was your weekend?  Ours was jammed packed but fun!  I finished my Christmas shopping and I was able to get a jump on some wrapping when the boys were out.  I am feeling pretty good about things now.  Usually I am done but Jack couldn't decide what to ask for.  He is my difficult one because he doesn't play with toys.  He loves sports and sorts.  He has never been a big game or toy player- he wants to be outside playing football with his friends or riding his bike and scooter.    But we are finished and that is a relief!!

Last August (it seems life forever ago) I worked really hard for Cord Scrapbook Studio with the Winter Tortellini Soup by Jillibean Soup.  I made a TON of projects and I can FINALLY show them here on my blog.  So for this week I am having a Jillibean Week!  My first project is an altered canvas.  I really stepped out of my comfort zone with this one!  First I made some snowflakes  using my Silhouette and then made a mask and sprayed my canvas with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  I then rolled paper up to different lengths and   glued them on to the canvas.  I added some burlap as my tree stump and buttons to decorate.  I really love how it turned out!
supplies
canvas- Michael's
paper- jillibean soup
buttons- random, jillibean soup
twine- the twinery

I want to thank all of you for all your super kind comments you left on Friday.  You all are the best!! Thanks again!!

I will be back tomorrow with a new Jillibean layout.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

I love the colours and the texture to this piece. Beautiful.
My middle daughter is the one that is hard to buy for. She is really laid back and never wants anything.
