My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Marilyn Rivera has prepared a wonderful step by step tutorial for you showing how she created her canvas using the May Off the Page Project and Limited Edition kits!

Here's Marilyn:

"Hello! This month I worked with the awesome "Off the Page" kit, this kit comes with a canvas and I will show you step by step how I did it...

First, I did a sketch, then I made some fussy cutting from the Lyric papers from The Limited Edition Kit and selected the photos. I painted the half of my canvas with acrylic paint.

I painted the other half of the canvas in a different color.

Then I marked the area where my photos go and then I used a stencil around the area my photos are going to be in.

Then I paste the lace from the kit, like in the photo.

I covered one of my photos with the "Prima Antique Mirror" from the kit, I love the effect...

I paste the photos and made some fussy cutting from the Prima cards from the kit. Then I selected the stamp and I started stamping along the division of both colors.

It should look like this...

Then I cut the Vintage Trinkets clock in half.

Now, it's time to decorate with all the beautiful flowers and embellishments from this kit.

It should look like this...

I used the Alphabet Stickers from the Limited Edition kit for my quote.

I used my precision pen to write around my alphabet.

Then cover the photos and the area and start to spray with the Maya Mist from the kit.

with my fingers I spread a bit of molding paste in my canvas and then sprinkled the micro-beads to create a fantastic texture effect...

And this is the final result.....

I hope you guys enjoy and this inspires you. If you want this awesome kit you will find it...HERE.
Until next time!!!"
