*{Happy December!}*

Welcome to December scrappy friends!!! It's going to be a beautiful month here at LCOM...our Marketing Team has some fabulous things in store for you , I am sure!!! :) So keep your eyes peeled!!!

I am kicking off the month with an altered canvas I created....and I know many of you have heard of sucks hours out of your day and you don't even realize it!!! It's craziness, I honestly can say I have had hours fly by and it made me think, holy cats I need to get off the couch and get the laundry done! Which leads me to my next thought, that I am thankful for the simpleness in my life. :)

My canvas was inspired by an actual pin...this pin:

Pinned Image

It inspired me to create this using great products available from LCOM:

I created this canvas using the following products:

A 12X12 canvas (I had on hand)

The Twinery in:

American Craft Thickers...which are sold out. (However if you are inspired to create something like this...there are a ton of other Thickers available in the LCOM shop!!)

The canvas is using crackle distress paint, Tim Holtz...again had that on hand, but we do have some in the store, just sayin' :)

....and as always my doodling is via my signo gel pen and my trusty sharpie.

I hope I have inspired you to look everywhere and anywhere for ideas...because there truly is inspiration everywhere!!! Have a great Monday!!!
