Hi! It's Candy Spiegel returning as my second time as a guest designer on the Linnie Blooms blog!

This time I wanted to share the Stitched Canvas Book I created ... well, decorated anyway. The great thing about this little book is was all sewn and ready to go when I received it!

I started using my Copic Airbrush System and plastic stencils to create the background.

To keep things neat, I placed the book in an old box and used Removable Glue Dots to hold the stencil in place.

After the stenciling was finished, I airbrushed a few colors around the edges of the book.
Then, I airbrushed a piece of Linnie Textures and added it to the cover.

Then, I added a Sizzix peacock die, flowers, ribbons, fibers, Dew Drops, charms and more.
Here's another detail shot ...

For the inside pages, I used papers from Graphic 45 and Webster's Pages. I continued airbrushing the pages throughout the book to tie it all together.

On this page, I airbrushed the Linnie Textures for the right side of the page, then used it as a stencil for the left side of the page.

I hope you enjoyed this peek inside my little mixed-media booklet. Visit my blog at for more inspiration.
