Canvas Corp. Brands - August Challenge

The August Challenge at Canvas Corp. Brands is titled, "Let's Visit the Cinema" and I've created three little journals to submit.

I love the romance of old Hollywood and that became the starting point for my creations.

The first mini journal features a "Classic Hollywood" image that worked perfectly with the 7gypsies - Odre Du Jour paper. I covered the front and back of the journal with paper from the 8x8 paper pad. I backed the Hollywood image onto a panel of  ivory cardstock and glued that to the front of the journal. I placed a strip of patterned paper from the Bo Bunny "Beautiful Dreamer" collection underneath the image. Over that I place a piece of  the 7gypsies new Architextures - Iron Fence embellishment. Love the old style look here! If you haven't seen or used Architextures, you're in for a real treat!

My next little book is pure classic Hollywood and features a movie poster image of the film, "Casablanca." The front features Canvas Corp. Brands Grey and Ivory Ribbon Stripe paper (no longer available) and a panel of paper from the 7gypsies - Gypsy Moments 8x8 paper pad. I backed the "Casablanca" with Canvas Corp. Brands - Black and Ivory Zig Zag Reverse paper and layered that onto the front of the journal. The top features the word "Passion" cut out from a piece of the Gypsy Moments paper. This film certainly embodies passion!!

The last little notebook features a movie poster image of the 1951 Cannes Film Festival. It follows with that old cinema romance I was looking for. I used Canvas Corp. Brands Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe paper to cover the front and back. Over that I layered a panel of Canvas Corp. Brands Black and Ivory - Paris paper, which coordinates so well with the Cannes theme. I adhered a strip of the Black and Ivory Zig Zag Reverse paper which really set off the film festival image.

I am really pleased with the way these three journals turned out. This challenge was great fun and the cinematic theme was a good way to incorporate something new into my work. 

I hope you take the time to check out the great papers and embellishments available from Canvas Corp. Brands.

Thanks for stopping today!
