today is another day for a great tutorial from our fantastic DT. This time Abby is going to show us a pretty canvas mini album.
“I wanted to repurpose some canvas sheets I salvaged from an estate sale so I decided to use them in a mini album. “
What you will need:
- Canvas sheets
- Card stock/Paper Collection
- Distress Ink
- Liquid Adhesive (your choice)
- Craft paint/inks
- Hole Punch
- Glossy Accents
I cut the canvas sheets into a 12×12 sheet.
Then I cut the sheet in half to create two 6×12 pieces.
Then I cut those pieces in half to create 6×6 squares of canvas.
I punched 3 holes in each piece of canvas for the binding.
I used a combination of Gesso and some craft paints to cover each canvas square.
I wanted to create some texture for the front cover so I added a strip of some textured tape.
Once the squares were dry, I did some light sanding on the edges to give them a distressed look.
For the cover and back page I adhered some metal rings using Glossy Accents.
Lastly I used some Distress Ink on the edges of all the canvas sheets before I began embellishing the pages.
I wanted to use some of the scraps of canvas I cut earlier in the mini itself so I used some sprays to create texture and background.
In the next few photos you can see how this looked once the page was complete.
To create additional texture on a chipboard element I was using on the front cover, I used more of the canvas.
Next I embellished each page with the paper collection I chose to use along with some flowers, embellishments and trims. Once all the pages were completed I assembled the mini together using some Jute Twine.
