i've had a number of requests from scrappers that read the SBM 13 - 3 as they showed some of my scrappy space in the mag. So here are some of the peg boards that were in the making at the time of the write up. I've got more coming but i am just cruising along there's not hurry!'s how i made them, was really easy old canvas (no canvas) frames and peg board ( from your hardware store) cut it  to size - nail  it on - give it coat of paint - adhere a hook.  And hang them like a picture.

 "you complete me"

....AUSSIE SCRAP SOURCE - make it yourself challenge...  i love the challenges that are being posted each week.... take a LOOK and play along...

Here’s how I made mine
  I drew a couple of clouds on card stock and cut them out and used them as a template and trace around them all over the background. I then outlined them all with a black gel pen. Once finish I colored them in with paint and also a white gel pen. Then I hand cut a banner out of scrappy paper and use it as a mask, using glimmer mist. Once the glimmer mist dried I used machine stitching to outline the banner.

What a bonus I actually had some plain paper copier transparency film. All I did was print a photo on to the transparency film, and then transferred it by rubbing it onto Kraft cardstock. The end result was more of a canvas finish. I like the result and will try this again. You do have to have the right transparency film to get the best result. 
The possibilities are endless!
