Ok, so you don’t have a ton of time to do a scrapbook but there are a few photos that you would just love to show off. Think outside the book. There are other options.
Who said canvas is just for painting portraits? You can cover it with scrapbooking paper (or fabric), arrange your favorite pictures, add some flowers and hang. Aside from the plain canvas that you normally see, I’ve picked up a couple pieces of canvas that will allow you to display objects as well. I don’t see this type of canvas often but I like it. You can put a picture in the indented part and decorate around it or just use the indention for an object that relates to the photo(s) that you’ve mounted along the side. Do whatever suits your taste.

Again, cover with paper or fabric and place the photo(s) to be seen through the hole or use that space for your journaling and space your photo(s) around the hole.
Why does each place require a photo? Use embellishments or journal.
What IS that you say??? 🙂 It is a small file that we used to keep on our desks with our most used points of contact. I personally have not done this, but it’s a cute idea for the office. I’ve seen it on a desk with photos instead of all those contacts that we now have computerized.
Now, look around the house; you may come up with other ideas when you open your mind to the possibilities. It’s ok to break the rules when it’s art.
SO, you’re using all those different pieces of paper and you have snips and scraps lying around. What do you do with those????
Hope this gives you inspiration to create!
