Art Journal Canvas

Well I was resistant at first and I don't know why...I had not tried this "art journalling" before and I was provided a prefect combination of opportunity and inspiration from my co-designers at Scrap'n With Flair (those ladies are so talented) and the Art on the Severn Art Show I help organize decided to have some committee members show their work as well.

I used the Scrap'n With Flair July Plumeria Kit and some old canvases I had kicking around!  I also used mat gel medium and gesso to get the first few layers down.  Then added some great embellies some from my stash but most of the flowers, bling, pearls, jewels and trim were from the add-on kit. Then I played with adding some colour by using inks that came in the kit and some acrylic paint.

My partner and I just bought a house so we are going to put these in our new living room!  
Happy Scrappin!


  1. I absolutely LOVE these Steph, you did such a awesome job! From the looks of them I find it hard to believe you've never done "art journaling" before.
    It's funny how all the design team members are trying each others styles; and you nailed it!
