Donna Downey Canvas Album - Alki Beach Style

So.. one of the July Label Tulip add-ons was the Donna Downey Prima Canvas Album. I loved this album from when it was first released and was so excited to play with it. This is my first 8x8 minibook, and as per usual, it is more of a maxi-book than a mini.
It is mostly made with the main LT kit and the stuff from the add on. I ended up having to throw a few things in there from my stash, and I think it turned out pretty good.

The cover is stamped all over with the infinity stamp from one of the add-ons in a light grey, and then I covered the fabric in gel medium to stabilize it and then cut it out like a patterned paper. To keep the little shell from breaking, I filled the back with glossy accents.

All of the canvas pages were inked and then machine-stiched in a random swirly pattern. Layers and layers went into the pages. I love this book and I hope that you will too. Here we go:

You can also see more detail shots starting here on my flickr pages.

Thanks for looking!

p.s.

I am going out of town from Friday morning until Sunday. We are going on a mini-vacation to Vancouver, B.C.

I may blog, I may not... I will be planning another minibook though :)
Hope you have a great weekend!
