Ho Ho Ho Canvas Mini-Album by Jowilna Nolte
For our Festive issue we have gone traditional with a slight twist. Our cover is adorned with a painted layout from the new Prima Paintables range. We added a mini-album made from two canvasses attached to each other with hinges bought from the hardware store. The album was inspired by Wilna Furstenberg who loves using art materials in her scrapbooking. The canvas was painted using acrylic paint mixed with Gum Arabic to make it transparent and allow some of the canvas to show through. Patterned paper with a festive Christmas wreath, a chipboard flourish and sticker attached to the front finished it off. Because the hinges caused the canvas to be slightly raised from each other it left room for quite a few pages to be inserted. The pages are filled with Christmas quotes, stickers, embellishments, cards and photographs. The spine is decorated with ribbon wrapped around the inside and a multitude of bows in different colours tied around it. We used a combination of the traditional red and green colours but added some blue, brown and yellow for fun.
Patterned paper by 7Gypsies, Basic Grey, K&Company & Prima. Beaded wreath by Designs Unlimited. Flourish by Enmarc. Stickers by Making Memories. Blue glass baubles by Home Etc. Other: Ribbon, hinges, canvas & acrylic paint.
