Being from Irish ancestry, this weeks theme at Fab'n'Funky Challenges was right up my street and having celebrated many a St Paddy's Day with maybe more than one Guinness and a wee whisky, I was actually a little stuck as to what to make . . . I could of completed another page in my Irish Journal, made a card or even a scrap book page but still couldn't decide.
Whilst talking to Mum about her plans for Saturday she mentioned that she liked the canvas I made about our visit to the Guinness Factory (she saw it on her recent visit) and could I make her one . . . my problem was solved until I realised I didn't have any plain canvases !!! Luckily, I managed to source one ASAP and here is what I made for MUM using my canvas to create a near enough replica . . .
We visited the factory in August 2009 and had a blast. It took us all day to go around and obviously stop and sample a few on the way! All images are from a Guinness leaflet I still had or taken from the internet and printed on to Safmat, including some of the photos!
Mum relaxing with a glass (half pint) of Guinness. I have actually printed her on to Safmat and then carefully placed in front of those barrels to make it look like she is there for a "session"!
I also did the same with this photo of Aaron and he was over the moon when he saw it as he is . . . sitting on top of a roaring Guinness!
I am entering my canvas in to the following challenges:
Shopping our stash - food/beverage theme
My Graifco Challenges - St. Patrick's Day
The Crazy Challenge - no designer paper . . not a bit used. Just printed on to leaflets or used Safmat.
A-musing Challenges - St. Patrick's Day
Pile It On - St. Patrick's Day
Cupcake Inspirations - photo inspiration (Irish themed)
Have a great "happy hump day" everyone,
