Summer Memories Canvas

We're celebrating summer!

Not hard to do when you have temperatures in the high 90's and 100's to remind you that summer is still here!

Today's project is perfect to use for all those special photos you've gathered from a visit to the beach, trip out of town or just summer memories around your home.

So grab some photos and get busy crafting a special canvas to celebrate those memories!

Select several photos of various sizes. Layout those out onto your background paper to determine how they'll best fit. Once you've laid these out, start adhering those down.  
Next decide on what embellishments to use. I selected some that helped conceal lines between photos and add interesting details that also fit the theme of the photos.

Add some dimensional letters and embellishments for interest.

Don't forget to include some real items from your trip such as seashells to complete the canvas!!!
