Me and my Poppy.

Happy Sunday peeps, hope you are all having a lovely day and for my U.S. friends a safe long week-end as we honor our military.

Today I have another scrapbook page I created today using week 3's sketch for this month over at Sketches in Thyme and would also like to enter it into Lasting Memories week 4 challenge, anything goes following this month's theme and for my theme I choose Strength as my husband is certainly the strength of our family.

This photo was taken yesterday with my husband and our 2 1/2 year old great-granddaughter on his backhoe she really thought she was big stuff and of course just the fact she wanted to get on it melted her Poppy's heart......I used DCWV Blue Citrus.....title stamp is CTMH  and I just love that wooden frog and mason jar.....and this little sweetie likes ladybugs so had to add a few of them.

Looks like I am stuck on yellow as my last few project have had yellow somewhere on them.

The first thing I did was add the stencils using stencil paste, the word Dream, Friend, and Zig Zag down the side are from Club Scrap, and the Brick Wall is Stampinback which Della has in the I added Gesso over the entire canvas, after that all dried I started adding color with Gelato's and Distress Inks stamped the following image directly to canvas with more distress inks, Large Script Background, Dots from Half Sheet 122A, and the circles from Remember I stamped Large Owl and Large With This Kiss on paper colored and glued to the canvas....printed Soar under owl, added buttons, flowers and gems.

Hope you have enjoyed my post today I have done a couple of canvas before but never like this. Sorry but my owl is upside down tried stamping him directly to the canvas didn't work so well so
