Inked Up Canvas Mini Album


It's my day to share what I made for my Imagein Crafts dt challenge project. I REALLY love this project. I have been anxious to make something with Purple. It's so hard to find paper with purple as a main color. Authentique Paper has done a fabulous job with their Remembrance collection, so I had to create something with it and my Imagine Crafts products (they coordinate soooo well with Authentique products!). 

Gather your supplies. You will need a blank canvas, I used a canvas book because I wanted to make a mini album, embellishments, paper, walnut ink, fireworks, dew drops. 

Begin spritzing your canvas. Get messy! This is the fun part because you can just go wild until you reach the look that you desire.   

I decided to add some stenciling, so I misted over my houndstooth stencil. 

After that, I sprayed a little more walnut ink & fireworks in various colors to get a nice blend. 

Next you will need some stamps. I don’t have many background stamps, so I chose a few versatile stamps to use throughout my book.   

Start stamping all over the place. It’s good to be random, especially if you are planning on covering up parts of your canvas with paper, photos, & embellishments. 

You can also add stencils to the inside of your book (if you do a book). This works on any canvas, I just love the idea of a canvas mini album because every page can be a new project in itself. 

Be sure to stamp with a darker color so you can see your stamped images. 

Once you are finished misting and stamping, take a heat tool and dry your canvas or if you don’t have a heat tool, you can let it air dry. 

Your canvas book will be different depending on the colors and stamps that you choose. Once it is dry, you can begin adding in the fun stuff to make your project come alive. 

Embellish and add photos and you have yourself one awesome project! 


I added photo mats to the inside and embellishments  I didn't add my own photos because I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep this one as a gift or not. It's always good to have a sympathy themed card or gift on hand.
