It's a Journey

Hi, my dear blog friends, hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we'd love to see your JOURNEY - whether it's about your own creative journey, process, life in general, or your next vacation. This word is so inspiring, and conjures up so many images and thoughts we can’t wait to see how you interpret the challenge.

I created the mixed media cover of a mini canvas album for my vacation.

I love traveling and documenting my journey in a trip journal. This week, I decide to alter the cover of this Maya Road 4" X 4" Canvas Album Book with some mixed media elements to record my vacation.

To start this project, I took off the cover from the album because it's easier to apply mediums on the surface of this canvas cover.

The Mod Podge was applied on the cover to protect the surface. It is also a great gel medium to adhere the embellishments.

Use a pallet knife to apply the modeling paste on the surface to create the texture.

I then sprayed Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist and dropped Izink ink on the background.

The Prima Flowers and vintage trinkets were attached to add more interest on this canvas album.

Hope you like my creation and are inspired to create something fun and beautiful for your journey.
Supply List:

  12. You're certainly not afraid of getting your fingers inky and a messy space, and your efforts are SO worth it, I love the style you've created for this mini album!

  13. Meihsia...Your album cover is brilliant! I love the crackled look you've gotten with the fabric cover. The muted colors peeking out from under the white wash is very striking. All of the elements you centered on your cover look so wonderful I love the layered flowers and the bits of metal you've added. So pretty! <3 Candy

  17. WOW! This is especially incredible! I'm always amazed at your creations, but this one really "spoke to me," as cheesy as that sounds. I have that exact same album and have had no idea of what to do with it, so I was doubly impressed at how you totally transformed it. Thanks for the stunning eye candy as well as the step-by-step instructions of how you brought it to life.

  18. This is GORGEOUS! You have such a way with texture... I wish I could touch it!
