Scrapping on Canvas

The kitchen is my favorite place to be as long as I am not cleaning it or doing the dishes. But of course many of you readers know that my second favorite place is my craft room. I find it so relaxing to be in there being creative. I love being locked in with my worship music making projects to decorate our house with or to give away as gifts.

Here is one of my lastest projects which was also used to decorate our house for love day. Its a scrap page of me and hubby. I started off with a black and white picture of the two of us. I knew that I wanted to use a black and white back ground but to add some elegance to it I wanted to use a splash of red.

To get the black and white picture to stick out I placed it on the red paper. To keep the embellishment simple, because this was a gift for my hubby, I made this rosette from a scrap of the paper and the swirly thing is cut out from the Cricut (home decor I think)

For the journal block I used Song of Song 1:1-4 (because it talks about kissing :)
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth
for your love is more delightful than wine pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you! Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.

Then for the title which is also from Song of Songs and what we had engraved inside our wedding bands; My Lover is Mine and I am His

So great looking scrap page eh....well its not finished yet to make this a decoration cause lets be honest its too nice to put away into a book that will hardly get looked at I decided to put it onto a canvas.

I really love putting pages on to canvas cause its a cheap way to decorate your house. I purchased this canvas at the dollar store for $1.25. I used black paint to paint around the sides of it (giving it depth) then using modge podge I glue the page to the canvas and put a thin coat all over the page. Oh and one last thing I added the embellishment after I did the Modge Podge!!

So for more creative ideas check out I love nap time.
