The Challenge - to use a 12 x 12 kraft envelope

The crew Team at Canvas Corp Brands was challenge to use a 12 x 12 kraft envelope.

I hope you will visit the Canvas Corp Blog to see the amazing finished projects! Mine is included in the video around the 2:10 mark.


12x12 kraft envelope

I decided to use mine to create a faux leather cover for an art album.

 I tore the envelope into pieces and crumpled them up.
 I smoothed out the papers and created a leather look using French Roast Color Wash Paint, Marigold and Rusty Red Glimmer Mist. Once they were dry I glued them to the album. I glided over the pieces with a black ink pad to accent the folds and edges.



Using Rusty Red Glimmer Mist, I added color to my modeling paste which I applied to the cover using a stencil.





And here is the finished album. 

 

This was such a fun challenge.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you check out the Canvas Corp store where you will find beautiful paper, inks and canvas for your crafting needs!
