Canvas Journal Page Tutorial

Hi everybody! Have you seen Bad Girls Couture’s one of a kind journals? These beauties are crafted by hand by artisans in the USA. These journals are hardbound and they are 100% cotton. They are one of a kind and there are no journals on the market like them.

I love how each page is held together using ribbon. You can also add more pages to the journal! Inside the journal, you will find a variety of mixed media pages such as Kraft, patterned paper, pocket pages, cardstock, canvas, and transparency that include a zig-zag, stitched border. Most importantly, these journals are Eco friendly.  We take pride in saving the environment. Therefore, these journals are made from recycle materials.

Seriously, the entire journal is beautiful!  If you want to make these journals your own, the canvas cover can be painted or inked! There are no limitations when it comes to these beauties. Grab yours today!

Today, I am sharing a canvas journal entry that I created using some molding paste, paint, punches and washi tape. These size was so easy for me to scrapbook since I tend to scrapbook smaller sized photos. To begin, I mixed some of the Haute Mess Drop Dead Gorgeous paint with some molding paste to thicken the paint up a bit. If you do not do this, the acrylic paint will smear underneath the stencil and your design will not come out clear.


I used a paintbrush to frame the edges of the page. While the gesso was wet, I added a strip of washi tape at the top and bottom part of the layout. The gesso will act as a glue so I was not worried about the washi tape not sticking.

I decorated the layout using hand-made die cuts I created using a variety of paint and stamps. Look for a tutorial soon on how I made the flowers and butterflies next Wednesday!


Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful week!
