Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival

Hello everyone!

Jayme Loge here today!

For my day job, I work in a school as an education assistant. In previous years, my assignment has been to provide literacy support to several classes. This meant working with several teachers and a rotating group of kids. Due to student needs, my assignment this past year has been in one classroom. It was a wonderful experience to work closely with one teacher and student group. I decided to get the kids together to work on a special end of the year gift for the teacher. They ended up creating this wonderful canvas!


Supplies Used:

Canvas- Michaels 16×20

Stencils- Donna Downey (Keyhole Splatter, Bubbles, Halftone Dots); Tim Holtz (Speckles, Lace)

Paint- Ranger Dylusions

Stamps- Frog’s Whiskers Ink

Ink- Clearsnap

We worked for weeks in a secret location, kids giving up their recess time in turn so everyone got a chance to contribute. The best part was when we presented the canvas to the teacher; the students couldn’t wait to tell her which part they worked on. They were so proud!

“I was on the plop and stick team!”  (Placing squares of paper on the very bottom layer.)

“I swooshed white stuff around!” (Applied gesso.)

“I was on the team that put stuff on with the thing-a-ma-jig!” (Texture paste and stencil.)

“I tore up paper for the trees!” (Kinda ironic, if you think about it!)

“I painted the letters so they would match. Mrs. Loge didn’t have a matching set!” (Out of the mouths of babes…)

They were delighted with their creation, and most were surprised with the end product their layers were a foundation. It was so cool to see them figure out how their part that may not be obvious still added interest to the canvas, and made it unique and better.

I’m going to miss this group…
