Hello, Roadies...Dina here to share a little canvas mini album I did for summer CHA. Maya Mist and canvas are a match made in heaven, aren't they?
When I mix & match Maya Mist colors, I make sure to use colors that don't turn brown & muddy when they mix. Colors that turn brown when mixed together are blue and orange, green and red, and purple and yellow. Instead, I use colors that will make another nice color when they mix. I used Fig Magenta and Lemon Metallic. When they mix, they make a lovely orange. I also used Popsicle Blue and Lemon Metallic. They make a cool green when they mix.
I started each page with a swatch of white acrylic gesso (just covering about 1/3 of each page). When you mist over dried gesso, you get a different look than than the canvas. You get a tone-on-tone look without any work. I love techniques that are easy!
I used Silver mist to mist the scalloped chipboard frames. I decorated the album simply with the You Are stamps, the new Vintage Kraft Flag pins, and Vintage Wood Birds. I couldn't resist adding bits of Ecru Mega RicRac, too.
Hope you can find some time to get inky this week!
