"Silent Night," Altered Canvas


Aside from my passion for Graphic 45 paper collections, I've been collecting various music printed papers. These work so well as a backdrop for the various flower projects I enjoy creating.

One day while at my local scrapbook shop, I picked up several sheets of music papers. I didn't take the time to see what music titles they were. One was a shimmering white glitzy sheet...it turned out to be music for "Silent Night." After this discovery, I knew the only flowers to work on my canvas with this sheet was the poinsettia. I found a great  video showing how to use the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to make this flower. To make your own, go to:

The small bud at the top was made from the spiral cut flowers, so popular now and those leave were from the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge.

Xmas holiday is a bit early, but it's fun to get an idea and run with it!
