Eight weeks to go

until the end of my first OU year and I'm four weeks behind *sighs* On the plus side I got one essay out of the way so I can move onto the next. I've had a productive day, one essay, several scrappy projects and other bits and bobs :D
As some of you will know, I've been away this weekend, in Manchester, so a quick recount for you. Jeff Dunham... FANTASTIC, that man is a genius and *so* damn funny! I got to visit Agent Provocateur and got some of the CUTEST lingerie (pics to follow later in the week) No scrapping though, hence today's activities. I've been planning my mini canvas for a while now, and here it is :D

The photo is of my mum taken not long after Dad and she got engaged. Dad's work collegues had been bugging him for quite a while and one Saturday she was dragged into town and into a passport photo booth.

I've used the April Go-go kit:
Canvas co mini canvas, edges inked in tea dye distressed ink
Maya road chipboard painted brown, then rock candy crackle paint and finished with Tim holtz tea dye distressed ink
Button and pin Jennie Bowlin
Photo inked with tea dye distressed ink painted with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle paint then peeled off in places
Ribbon from stash

I also had a look at the Monopoly CC on UKS and had a play with Angie's class, The Angel, Islington. I had great fun!

Used MME glitter paper (from the Penny Lane stack I think) Edges inked in Tea dye and Old paper distressed inks
Green Bazzil, edges inked as above and Olive Vine glimmer mist, stitching effect in brown journalling pen
Top frame: MME paper, but I can't remember which one! Inked with Old Paper distressed ink.
Pink paper is Crate, but don't know which one (again)
White chit chat thickers
MLS mini alphas in cream
random ribbons and bling from stash

Yes, fun was had along with inky fingers :D

Great blog...I've got two blank canvases, bought on a whim, that I can't decide what to do with. You've just given me an idea!

Lovely canvas and layout. I LOVE the frame around the layout and the dressmaker's dummy on the canvas. TFS. ~Glen~

Your mini canvas is beautiful Jenny...I love it... Can you tell me where you get the min canvas from as I am dying to have a go but don't want to buy a kit!!

Hmm.. Good question Kirsti. I know the company is is called Canvas Corps and thre a US based company. I'm not sure if any of the UK suppliers have them in at all. I'd email them, see if they have any UK suppliers or ask on UKS, see if any of the sponsors can get their paws on them .
