Prima Canvas Album - the inside canvas pages

After the last tutorial on the canvas album, it is now time for the details on the inside canvas pages. For each of these canvas pages, I just repeated a basic process. I painted each page with white acrylic paint as a base.

Once that is dry, I painted each page with a mixture of colors to suit the photos I plan to use.

For the blue page, I mixed white and blue paint and painted a thick coat on the canvas so I had a thick layer of paint that formed a circle. When the paint dries, you will notice that paint has form a harden texture.

For this page, I painted only the bottom section. I wanted it to look like grass.

I added flowers and some ribbon for my flower page.

For this particular page, I mod podge pieces of paper onto the canvas before I painted it with white paint. The paper gave the page more texture.

With so many pages, I just couldn't paint all the canvas pages. I was tempted to mist a few and I love the results.

Using the backing of a sticker as a mask, I managed to create a dreamy feel with a mix of blue and sliver mist.

I used the cute little Maya Road chipboards as mask for this page.

The details from the Heidi Swapp mask really come through with the mist.

Other than using arcylic paint, I've used some crackle paint on this canvas page. While the paint was drying, I sprayed the page with some Maya Mist.

I hope I've given you some ideas to play with your canvas album. Do share with us your creations.
You can view my completed pages at the gallery.
