Scrapook Canvas with Acrylic Paint


If you've followed me for awhile you've heard me say that all the mixed media techniques I use in my art journaling are transferable to any paper art.  This includes scrapbooking.

This is a canvas board I purchased from the art store, however you can buy one at any craft store as well.  I painted the background with multiple layers of gesso and acrylic paint.  I used a combination of Golden Fluids as well as Liquitex Basics.

Once I was happy with the layers I stamped a hand carved stamp multiple times with Archival Black ink.  From there it was all about the embellishing with Prima goodness!



The beautiful baby is one of my nieces, I just love the expression in her face!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  :)
Much LOVE! xo
