Canvas Mini Album by Amelia Khalik

When I received my Nov kit, I was excited but at the same time nervous looking at this Maya Road Mini Canvas Album. I have to admit it was a challenge to complete a total of 12 pages! It took me several days to create this mini but it was all worth the effort. Canvas can be interesting, you can paint, embossed, stamp, mists, distress, sew on it or the easiest is to use rub ons or iron ons.

My mini album is a creation of most of the above, i will take you through some of the pages and a brief scrapping info.

Album Cover

I like my pages to look busy, you can see a lot of layering going on here, I prep the canvas by misting it and then add a layer of Doilies, Donna Salazar Pattern Paper, Lace, Key Holes cardbord using Tim Holtz Die Cut, Prima Iron Ons Pink Flowers, Rub Ons and finally the center denim flower is also a die cut from Tim Holtz Dies.

First Page

Mists the Canvas, Stamp an image, add Prima Iron Ons. Butterflies using Martha Stewart Punch.

Second Page

Again I mist and distress the background canvas, Using Tim Holtz Die cut a corrugated board and embossed. The handmade poppy flowers is from October Afternoon pp. Also added October Afternoon Rub Ons.

Third Page

Distress the background, stamp the chandelier image on a cardstock, cut and paste on the layers of paper behind my photo. Twirl a lace to form a petal and sew a button in the middle.

Fourth Page

I add an extra page by mounting a photo behind a transparency, add a bit of distress ink and stamped the transparency using stanz on permanent ink. Mists the canvas and i fussy cut the numbers from Fancy Pants Numbers Bracket pp.

Fifth Page

Matted my photo and punch a border using Martha Steward Puncher and Donna Salazar pp.

Sixth Page

Again I prep the canvas with Distress Ink. Layer with Donna Salazar pp, add paper flower on top of Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Button.

The rest of the pages are decorated using the technique above. You can view the entire album at the store. Hope this will shed some light on how to create your next canvas mini. Have a great week everyone..:)
