How to use Art Canvas on a Scrapbook Page

Hello Crafty People!

This was my “LIVE” for today. Grab a snack or a cuppa and watch me create a scrapbook page using the Art Canvas Seahorse as an artful embellishment. Here’s the finished scrapbook page.

 

HERE’S THE VIDEO

 

SUPPLIES:

Art Canvas – Seahorse and dew drops – Robin’s Nest
Art Chalks – Color Z Chalks
Alcohol Markers – Spectrum Noir (CT3, CR1, CR2, GB5)
Spray Sealant (clear, gloss) – Krylon
Copper Stickles – Ranger Ink
Water based blue ink pad -Adirondak Earthtones Stonewashed
Background paper – Colorbok
Shell Stickers – K&Company
Palm Tree Sticker – Jolee’s by You
Misc: photo, solid cardstock for matting photo, scrap cardstock for template, photo copy for mask,
adhesive, PC to print title, cotton balls
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
1. Photocopy the canvas art, may need to use a darker setting.  Cut out the copy to use as a mask for the background technique. Adhere to the canvas over the original picture with sparse dots of a dry adhesive.
2. Create a wave template from scrap cardstock. Place on the canvas approximately 1″ from bottom. Using a cotton ball apply the darkest blue chalk over the edges of the cut out waves. Continue to move up in 1″ intervals and repeat applying the dark blue chalk.
3. Using a clean cotton ball, apply the darkest turquoise chalk to fill in the rest of the white areas of the background.
4. Leave the mask in place and lightly spray with sealant.
5. Using all colors of alcohol inks, randomly color the entire seahorse. Don’t be blocked in by the geometric designs, by having multiple colors in one block, the results will be super!
6. Out line the entire seahorse and all the geometric shapes within, with copper Stickles. Using the Stickles as an adhesive, adhere the small round black dew drop in place for the “eye”. Set aside to dry.
7. Create a word processing document, change the size to 12×12 and create a title “Life’s a beach”. The font used is “Lovely Home” size 80pt. Double check printer orientation and print directly onto the 12×12 background paper.

8. Adhere the canvas to the background paper.

9. Select your photo and matte with turquoise cardstock, adhere to the background paper as shown.
10. Embellish further with Palm tree and seashell stickers.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you’re inspired to get crafty today!
Craft on!
