Not a card or scrapbook page

Hello Everyone, 

Is your life as busy as mine? Not a  lot of creating happening here at the moment! I thought I'd stop by and show you a fun project that a created a few weeks ago. 
You can just see the corner of a shelf that sits above my computer desk.....it displays a few pretty bits and pieces. But this electrical board ruined the whole look!

So........ I came up with this idea to cover it. The canvas sits right over the top.....no hooks, nails etc. It just balances on the electrical box, you would never know that ugly thing was underneath! The is canvas is 18 inches square.

I used a Kaiser stencil and gold paint to sponge the design onto the canvas. It looks yellow in the photos....but it really does have a beautiful gold shimmer. 

I'm linking up with Kaiser Saturday challenge # 3.......off the page creations.

I'm slowly finding my way to your blogs....

Thank you so much for visiting me

Happy creating 



  1. That looks wonderful Tracey, and I am sure it is shimmery in real life.. and yes the days are busy and flying by.. Second week of holidays here, so nice to be staying home.. I did go to the garden we went to last year to get some photos of miss 13.. what a difference a year makes.. she pouted and complained and I didnt get as many photos this year.. ah well.. teenage years can be hard to get photos.. hehe!! Enjoy the rest of the week!

  2. Fantastic job in covering up an eye sore! Hope you are enjoying your week and hopefully things will slow down just a little for you so you can create.
