WHAT’S UP DOG?

Hi everybody! I have a fun canvas journal page to share with you today! I’ve been itching to scrapbook this photo of me and Goofy from Epcot! When we went to Disney, I made sure the guys knew that I NEEDED a picture with Goofy… I didn’t care what else we did that day, but I needed my picture. LOL

Initially, I was going to leave the left-side alone and use it for another page, but after thinking about it, I decided to use my inks and a stencil to add some fun flowers in the colors of yellow, blue and orange to kind of blend in with the colors on the right-side of the art journal spread.

I made a video of the majority of this spread. After I finished, a few hours later, I still was not happy with the layout… so I added a few more embellishments which you do not see in the video.

I had some stamps from Jillibean Soup and one said “What’s Up Dog?” Totally perfect for this page. I was so excited. LOL

You’d think I had a mad crush on Goofy or something with all the hearts, but I just like hearts… and I happen to have a good amount of them in my stash. I have been all about using up my stash lately. Every time I turn around, there’s a new collection that I want, but I am not buying. LOL

More hearts and buttons to pull this journal spread together. I am much happier with this page with the added embellishments. What do you think? Have you seen these Art Journals in the shop? Check them out! They are fab! Click here to see the video!https://youtu.be/BoGc-_YUbSI

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!
