So it has been a LONG while since I dug out my Maya Mists and Canvas to play with. I decided that I wanted to see if I could create something cool with a couple of embellishments, my canvas and Maya Mists. This isn't my usual style of creating but doing something different is how you can expand and grow your creative process.
After a couple of evenings, I ended up with this album:
I will share with you some tips on how to work on Canvas with Mists and Salt so let's get started!
1. Maya Road Canvas Album (we have a bunch to choose from)
2. Maya Mists - I used Tangerine, Seafoam, Silver Metallic and Strawberry Metallic
3. Mister Bottle with Water (I used an old one from a mist I had already used up)
4. Masks, Chipboard Shapes (to create backgrounds on the canvas)
I also snagged an old cardboard carton from my son's juice boxes to use to contain the mists:
So all you do is take your canvas pages off. Then wet them under the sink and mist on them with the Maya Mists. Since our Maya Mists are such intense colors, use the water mister to soften the effect. If it is still too intense for you, rinse under the sink til it is the color you want it to be.
Just jump into it by experimenting in these ways:
Here is a look at several of the techniques in use on my pages:
I let the canvas pieces dry and in the meantime, I used similar techniques on some paper flowers, seam binding and velvet ribbons. When I was done, I came up with an album that looked like this:
Then choose some of your favorite photos and assemble your album! I decided to use some black and white photos as I wanted them to be the main focus of the album with all the color on the pages.
This is a lovely project you can complete in 2 or 3 evenings. Put everything back together and you are done! Enjoy!
