TRIPLE TROUBLE - CORRUGATED PAPER, LACE AND METAL

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much for joining us again for another adventure inspired by the lovely Candy Colwell!  I was thrilled when she suggested we create a piece using corrugated paper, lace and metal as I have been dying to create a canvas using an old photo of my great-grandparents' wedding day!  These three elements definitely spoke to me for this project!  Here it is:


I was extremely pleased with this canvas and hope it will be a keepsake I can pass down to my family!  To see a step-by-step tutorial for this project, please visit my blog here.

I hope you have had a chance to see Annette Green and Cheryl Grigsby's Triple Trouble creations.  They are definitely inspiring!  Now we would love to see your projects too!  Head on over to the main page here and share your creations and ideas!

Don't forget to check every Tuesday and Friday this month for more projects from the rest of the gals here at Creative Carte Blanche!
