Fun ahoy!

This week Canvas Corp released 2 brand new nautical collections. These collections, along with Canvas Corps existing line of papers, make nautical crafting a breeze. Color palettes range from coral to kraft to navy to light blue.


Fun ahoy! Today it’s a nautical feeling in the post with the new Canvas Corp navy papers. They have a great, modern mix of navy blue and coral and the patterns go well with any maritime project. For this page I used them to decorate the beach photos from last summer but you could do a layout about sailing as well or use the papers for party decor. Your imagination is the limit! The collection also mixes well with the existing navy papers.


I started this page by adding pieces of two patterned papers on top on a plain navy blue one. Then I applied some gesso under the placement of my photos and misted two different blues on top creating water-like effect. On top I then added delicate pattern using another mist and a circle stencil. I also stamped a few compases using the 7Gypsies “Under the sea” stamps. To finish the splashy, wavy like effect I then flicked white High Impact paint to the page.

I used the flags from the sampler paper as decorations on my page and also added a saying “ahoy” from there. The title is made using chipboard alphas from 7Gypsies. The layout is finished with a flair button, chipboard compas and a few epoxy stickers.

Thank you for visiting today! Please see the new papers arriving to the store from this link!
