Jessica- **BASICGREY**

Our last project for the week uses an older line from BasicGrey, Obscure. Altering the backside of a canvas is one of my new favorite things to do. It's fairly easy and you get alot of dimension when you layer everything with popdots. Don't be afraid to double or triple the foam dots up either!

Tomorrow, A Daily Inspiration will start a "12 Days of Christmas" spotlight to get your scrapping mojo back where it belongs. We have lots of gorgeous projects lined up for you, so stick around through December for lots of new inspiration!

Altered Canvas
by Jessica Summers

Art Canvas: 30cm x 30cm
Paper: BasicGrey Obscure- Evasive, Random, Flint, Define, Pose
Chipboard: Magistical Memories
Stamp: Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous
Ink: Ranger Archival
Paint: Making Memories
Start by painting the inside and outside edge of the wood frame with a coordinating color. Once dry, cut your background paper a couple of centimeters larger than the middle portion. Adhere to canvas. Measure paper to fit around the front edge of the frame. Cut corners at a 45 degree angle for a nice, finished appearance. Freehand draw and cut a volcano with billowing smoke. Distress the edges with ink for more dimension and adhere. Cover your chipboard and ink the edges. Use pop dots on the chipboard and photo. Layer 2 or 3 pieces of foam for more height. The grass is cut larger than the bottom portion of the frame. The extra overhang is then cut into strip and curled around a paper piercer.
