Poetry and a Prize!

We have a new challenge for you at Scrap that Poetry!  The poem is an Irish Blessing - perfect with St. Patrick's Day coming up this week!  It's a bit of a long story, but it looks as though I may have lost the last two years of my photos due to computer problems.  I'm heartbroken, to say the least.  So what do I do without photos?  Create an altered canvas instead of my usual layout :).

I painted the canvas with a combination of white wash and light blue acrylic paint.  Then I layered masking tape on a self-healing mat and cut out the hill shapes.  I adhered my hills, then painted them green.  I made my sun and flowers from rolled fabric and burlap. 

I printed out my journaling, cut the pieces, and outlined each strip.  Then I hand-doodled around my border.  Now I just need to decide what ribbon to hang the canvas from :).

And guess who is sponsoring Scrap that Poetry?  Precocious Paper, of course!  You could win a pair of Dyed Cardboard Flowers, a set of Bridal Satin Blossoms, a pair of Lace and Felt Flowers, and a Bouquet of Fabric and Felt Flowers.  I've pictures some sunny yellow samples here, but the winner will have her choice of designs :).

I'd love to see you play along!  Thanks for stopping by :).  Tessa
