Without further delay here is my project using the May Mixed Media Kit, which features Prima Resist Canvas Mixed Media Covers.


Although I love the Dylusions sprays in the kit (I was so excited to get my hands on the new White Linen!!!), I wanted to use my new Lindy's sprays to make a seaside Guest Book for my Mother-In-Law's birthday for their cabin on the ocean.  We get the most gorgeous sunsets there. I did use the White Linen on the inside, and am saving the Turquoise for another project.


The dunes were made by layering and crinkling canvas tape and masking tape.
