My first Magnolia Canvas


Good afternoon everyone! I just finished this project and I wanted to share it with you. I wanted to create a canvas/collage for my daughter, depicting her work and her interests. I wanted to include a clef with a bit of musical tape by Tim Holtz, but, alas, no room! I also utilized my Stampscapes stamps. The sentiment was a gift from the lovely Miss Sandy, whom we all know and love! I wasn't sure it was blogworthy and I sure would love to know what you think!

I'd like to show you a couple of 8x10 Stampscapes scenery artwork....used to do a lot of scenery stamping until I discovered Maggies. I have several on my craft room wall.


Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. Love and hugs, Christina

  11. Your daughter is going to love her canvas, it is brilliant Christina - so much detail. I had a chuckle about not fitting the tape onto it, you'll have to make another?!! I also love your scene's, that is something I'd love to explore one day, they look so beautiful. Gorgeous work as always. x
