Themed Thursday - Bird Canvas Album

Greetings PWP fans!  Dana here today sharing a 3x3 canvas album for Themed Thursday.  I enjoyed working with the Bird Melange Cling Stamp Set so much for my Blog Hop piece that I decided to use the set again for this project, which also has a bird theme.

I added color to my canvas pages with Faber-Castell Gelatos. I scribbled Gelatos directly onto my craft mat, spritzed with water, blended with my finger, and then gently pressed my pages into the puddles of color.  To help the canvas pages absorb color, I lightly spritzed each page with water before I dipped them into the Gelatos solutions.  Once the color was to my liking, I steeped a tea bag in hot water and then added several drops of tea to each page, which helped to give my bright new canvas pages an aged feel.

After my pages were dry, I stamped the text, bird and feathers for my short story with Archival Ink.  All the stamps used for this project are from the Bird Melange Cling Stamp Set, except for the feather, which I borrowed from the Holiday Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set.

Thanks for joining me on my first flight today!  

Until next time,

Supplies: Canvas Album: Maya Road; Stamps: Paper Wings Productions; Gelatos: Faber-Castell; Ink: Ranger; Other: Tea, Twine
