Vintage Beach Canvas

Project Number 2 for the Design Team call at

This project is a vintage beach mixed media canvas 12 x 12. I am almost finished with Project Number 1 (the retro pinup mini album you see before this posting) , and I will be doing videos on both projects when the mini album is complete. Both projects for the Design Team call are due August 10th so I've been scrambling to finish.

In response to questions about my sneak peek retro pinup mini

Thanks for your questions and comments. The pinup images are not part of the paper lines I used. I purchased most of these images on as png files (meaning they can be resized and they have transparent backgrounds). I was able to print them to any size I needed and I printed them on matte photo paper using my Epson picture mate ink jet printer. The paper lines I used were several. I used some Glitz Designs and also some stickers from Glitz Designs and transparencies. I will explain in more detail when the mini is done and I make a video. I also used two collections from Cosmo Cricket including The Early Bird collection, and the 1934 collection. Additionally I used paper and elements from Echo Park's For The Record by Bella Road. Basically I searched for retro paper lines and these were the best I found for the application I wanted. I am very happy about the way it's turning out. This mini is one of two projects for a design team call at I can't wait to show project number two! The two projects are due by August 15th so hopefully I will be finished!

Meanwhile I am also working on my New Moon tag, the second tag for the Twilight Saga project also at I had a brainstorm and this tag is going to be totally cool and different! Thank you all for your support! Visit me on You Tube as user asoulgirl for lots of mini album videos.
