In vino veritas a Cocktail Recipe Journal


Hello there! Have you noticed the new lifestyle collections by Canvas Corp? You can see them all in the shop but all of those are also going to be presented here in the blog as well. For example the project in this post is made with the Vino collection that has been introduced already. Click here to view the post about the collection (link).

As the name says, the collection is about wine. But even if you aren’t into the drinks themselves, there’s still plenty you can do with the collection! I myself am not a wine drinker at all. Red wine isn’t to my taste and I rarely drink white either. But what caught my eye in the collection were the bottle openers! Don’t you just love how there’s so many varieties of those tools? And how well they fit to a steam punk style as well!


For this piece I used the Vino collection papers, but there’s not much wine present in the cover. I cut a few bottle openers and the numbers loose from different papers in the collection and added some canvas also in the layers. To get the steam punk style feeling to the cover I added different mists and paints on top. The mists I added using a brush so that I could really get the color just where I wanted.

The little book can be used as an art journal but with the kitchen style theme it can also hold recipes or even be a food-concentrated travel journal!

Thank you for your visit! Wishing you a peaceful Easter time.
