Hello everyone Candy here with another Off the page project. A group of my friends came to me and wanted to make an art journal, so I put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with.
I started with an A4 2 ring binder , covered it with some canvas that I pulled off an old canvas from my stash. Then I painted it all with some gesso this is to help prep the canvas and to seal it. I used a flower/swirl mask and some texture paste. Inside and out and then waited for this to dry. I used different coloured sprays and waited for it to dry again. I used a script stamp and archival ink and stamped here and there, then run the stamp pad over the outside, just to give it some colour.
I used the 12x12 inch round butterfly frame from Memory Maze, cut it in half and daubed some texture paste over it and dried it well. When it was dry I sprayed with gold and sepia sprays. The extra butterflies form the pack I coloured with the prima ink pads and glued one on top of each other.
I glued half to the front and the other half onto the back of my folder.
