Embellished Canvas Book


CT Publishing was so nice to donate 50 of these blank canvas books for our cruise members. This is the sample I made for the class. I used Crafty Chica paints watered down to cover the pages, and then stencils with white paint. I then inserted batting and added blanket stitching around the edges and loaded each page up with appliques and stamped letters, trims, charms and ribbons.

On the cover is the Crafty Chica Studded Heart Iron-On ($3.99)

Pssst..see that “la estrella’ patch? That was an applique that did not move forward in the first batch of chica products. I have a little stack of them left over from the prototype phase, that I can use on special projects. I love them!

I have your heart applique on my jeans now I must order another one for my journal. I’m not gonna copy yours though I promise ;=) Can you let us see the pages? I would love to see how you used the watered down paint…have a good week!

  2. I forgot to mention, you can also make your own book with lightweight canvas from the fabric store! just measures out six squares and sew them up the side like a book and decorate away! i used batting inside every two pages and then used a blanket stitch to close the edges…sooooo easy and super satisfying!!!
