How to Canvas Art Journal Pages for Summer

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today as I share with you my latest pages done in my Linnie Blooms Mixed Stitched book.  You can see the full posting I did here (post) for The Linnie Blooms Design Team.

I work in several journals and each one has a different surface or surfaces to create on.  In the LB book the pages are made of two layers of raw canvas with recycled paper in between, like a sandwich.  These pages are a joy for me to paint and do all sorts of mixed media things with.  This week I show a couple of pages I completed using paints and stencils.  Here are a few pictures:

                                                             2 pages in my journal
