Paper Artsy Canvas Transfer Experiment - Thorndon Hall Sketchbook
Here's another example of something I made using the canvas transfer experiment which I showed on the Paper Artsy blog here. I love the colours of the old Thorndon Hall papers and I have a stationery set I made a while ago so I wanted a matching notebook. This is another of the Reeves A5 canvas covered ones. By the way, Royal and Langnickel also do one. I used some of the older Paper Artsy stamps and layered them up on the canvas transferred background using different neutral shades of archival. For the flowers I stamped them on acetate and them painted them from behind with Fresco paints. I die cut the letters using a memory box set using more Thorndon Hall canvas transferrred paper. The tags on the spiral binding are Thorndon Hall transferred onto some canvas tags from Papermania.
There's a great prize up for grabs if you join in the Paper Artsy challenge before the end of September. Details are here.

Lucy, this is gorgeous! I love that you used some of the old PA stamps. I have a yearning to go back to some of the old favourites and I think I will soon. I do love the effect of acetate too - another technique I would like to return to. Finally I love those dangles and the nibs on the back. This is a beautiful project and your image transfer experiment is a great idea! xxxReplyDelete

Gorgeous Lucy! Love the pretty blossoms!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous cover, the pink flowers show up great against the subtle background. I have been meaning to try out the transfer with the PA papers, such a fantastic result on canvas.ReplyDelete
