16 x 20 Canvas Project

Hi everyone, hope you are well and staying warm on this cold Sunday!!  This is definitely the kind of weather to scrap and that's just what I have been doing...  My DIL Angela wanted to know if I could do a layout using a beautiful poem that her brother wrote about Christmas as the focal point.  I have never scrapped using anything but a photo as the focal point before, but I wanted to give it a try..  She also provided me with a few older photos and a few newer photos of her and her brothers, their families, and her parents... a total of 8 photos!  Well I knew I couldn't get it all on a 12 x 12 without making everything so small that it would be difficult to read the poem or to see the photos clearly..  So while I was debating on how to proceed, I came across this beautiful Noel Kit from BoBunny, which uses a 16 x 20 canvas.. OMGosh, this was perfect..  I think the hardest part was re-arranging the photos and deciding where to add the bling and chipboard embellies...  The chipboard embellies came with the kit, and the bling are from my stash...  I couldn't be happier with this Kit.  It was perfect for this project and I would love to get a few more, but, looks like a lot of other people like it too.  I've been checking back with them and right now they seem to be out of stock.. 

This will also qualify for a few challenges out there--
Alphabet Challenge ~ J for journey  (I see this as a journey from childhood to adult)
By The Cute and Girly ~ Bling It On
Craft Your Days Away ~ Anything Goes
Rainbow Lady's Challenge ~ It's New To Me  (working on canvas)
The Crazy Challenge ~ All Things New (BoBunny Canvas Kit)

Thank you for dropping by!!
Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs!!

Love this project, Fern. I saw that kit with the red canvas after I had done my clock project using these same papers and a canvas that I just painted. I think they are loads of fun. Love your placment of photos and the poem. I'm sure your DIL will love it! We got a dusting of snow but that's about it. Just preparing for the cold, cold weather moving in. Doing a little scrapping myself! LOL

Oh this is just so beautiful Fern!
Oh the pictures and the poem are wonderful.
I love those yummy papers.
I wondered if you used Mod Podge or something to get it all to adhere?

Just beautiful-but how did ya do it on canvas-you'll have to post a "how to do" and let us know since it seems to be the question of the day. Love all the papers and embellishments so nicely arranged.

You just love a new challenge don't you?! heehee!! This is fabulous!! What a great way to display the photos and you did an outstanding job working around the poem!! She is going to treasure this for sure!!
Glad to hear the snow missed you...but I have to be honest... my kids were missing the snow from Indiana in a big way so this was really good for them! Now that they have played outside for two straight days I think they are ready for it to melt!!
