Favourite teacher scrapbook canvas

We have a fantastic music teacher at our school, Tegan always thrives in her lessons, and she has really developed her confidence these last few years. This year Tegan got to perform with the choir and sing solo in front of a large crowd at our performing arts awards night, and also at the opening of the new Performing Arts Centre, and she wouldn't have had that chance without Mrs Van's help. As a thank you I decided to make a scrap canvas, and yes, it's black and red!!

I used a retired piece of DSP for the background and then added some red glimmer paper with stars punched out. I liked the negative of the punched image so used a Top Note die cut frame to highlight a photo too. Spinner Wheel from 'Take  Spin' stamp set worked really well as it describes everything that we love about her teacher! A mini vintage tag finishes the project off.

This is a really simple project to create using any size canvas from an arts supply shop, this one was about 8 inches big.
