The book of LOVE has music in it - Canvas - Scrap Africa

Morning Everyone, I am greeting you from the lovely San Lameer resort where I am spending a few days with two of my blog friends.

 It's also the start to a super new challange on Scrap Africa. This challenge is to use at least 1 chipboard on your project!

We received a package of Design Worx' chipboard embellishments.  The challenge at Scrap Africa this month is to use chipboard on your project.  I made a canvas for Laura as a wedding gift.  I wanted to use the music chipboard on the layout.  Here is the completed project.

 Supplies used:  Canvas: 12x18 inch; Pattern Papers - a mix of My Minds Eye Lost and Found, Bo Bunny and Flair Designs; Cardstock: American Craft; Chipboard:  Design Worx; Flowers: Prima; Bling: Prima; Stickels: Ranger; Title: Prima. Other: Mists, Texture Paste, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Glossy Accents, Glitter.
 I love how delicate the Silhouette cut doily is behind the photo

 I decided on this colour combination because I wanted to also enter this project for the "Scrap around the World" challenge.  This is what the inspiration board looks like.  The sketch was also used as inspiration for the canvas:

So imagine my surprise when I some of the wedding photos were uploaded and I saw that this was also Laura's colour scheme for her big day.

I first painted the chipboard with copper paint.  I then spread glossy accents over the entire piece and while wet sprinkled glitter onto it.

The title of the canvas was also Laura and David's wedding song.

This challenge is sponsored by Design Worx, who not only have sponsored the prize, but also chipboards for the DT to create with! Thanks so much to Yola for this super opportunity.
