Welcome fellow crafters! This is the first of (what I hope is many) blog posts. I had a million things to share then when I sat down at the computer, I couldn’t think of anything articulate to say…..so, I will simply outline what I hope this blog accomplishes and what I hope my readers and followers get out of it.
I wanted to have a place where I could share my creations and invite others to share their creations. Paper Canvas Creations LOVE all things paper! I create cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art, and I have been in love with paper, stamps, stickers and embellishments since before I knew what any of this was. I find art relaxing and therapeutic, whether I am creating it or admiring it at a museum, gallery or on the web.
My goal is to post at least once a week and in each post I will include a sample of some project I am working on along with a challenge, technique, tutorial or contest. The projects will change from week to week and be one of either a card, layout or altered art. I am looking forward to technique driven challenges, those are my favorite.
I belong to a group of incredibly talented “Scrappy Girls” that challenge me and make me go outside my comfort zone. I recently participated in a tag swap. We do these quite with new and exciting themes. The last one was “Steampunk Tags”. I originally was not going to sign up for this one because I do not do too much in the way of steampunk, but I love the creativity of the other members so much that I had to participate (if I wanted to receive the tags I had to make tags…). I am posting some photos of the process and the finished product. This is my very loose interpretation of “Steampunk”, ENJOY!
