Stampendous Maya Road Collaboration

The Stampendous! design team got to play with some cool Maya Road goodies this week and I got really creative!! The base of my project was a Maya Road Canvas Album. I've never done a canvas album before, but after slapping some gesso on it, how different from my art journal could it be??!!

Step 1: 
Mix gesso with ink or ink sprays. (I used Dylusions Sprays)

Step 2:
Paint gesso onto canvas album. 

Step 3: 

Once the gesso dried I stamped Cling Sewing Elements with brown Archival Ink in the background and drew my girl on top with a Stabilo pencil and Gelatos to add colour. 
(The title was stamped with Vintage Lower Case stamps; stick pins by Maya Road; Prima trim and Kaisercraft flower)

Page 2: 
This page was a lot of fun with the addition of stencils (Crafters Workshop). Once the stencilling was done I stamped Cling Classifieds in brown Archival ink onto the background. I used some chipboard pieces from Maya Road's Hand and Heart Chipboard set and painted them with silver DecoArt Metallic Lustre. This page was really just me putting a blob of pink in the centre, doodling around it, and sticking the chipboard down. So simple but I love it! lol... 

Here's a third page: 

That's all I did for now - but it was a lot of fun and such a cute little album to share with others... 

And, of course, there are prizes!! Maya Road will have one grand prize you can win by commenting on their blog, liking them on Facebook, and commenting on their Facebook page. We’ll have three prizes for the week comprised of a Maya Road alterable book (I have two chipboard and one canvas), Some MR chipboard or other embellies, and Stampendous EJK08 White Encrusted Jewel Kit – perfect for covering chipboard with blingy goodness and Stampendous CRW092 Cling Artist Elements and SSC1122 Elegant Borders Perfectly Clear Stamp™ Set. Readers will have until Sunday night September 15th to comment on as many of our team blog posts as they can. Monday we’ll choose three bloggers at random from the week and each blogger will choose one winner from her comments. Winners must have a United States mailing address.
