A new year brings a new approach to my Project Life album. This year I decided to go in a new direction and make my own title cards and extra embellishments. I really wanted to add some texture and more of me into the project. So I am using fabrics. A combination of canvas, linen, denim, burlap, and a numbered pattern fabric.
When I came up with the idea to use fabric I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to make something so flimsy work in the pockets of project life. I did a little digging in my stash and found some Sticky-Back Canvas. It is a perfect base for my fabrics of choice. I just cut it to size, peeled off the paper backing, stuck the fabric down and trimmed. It provides just enough stability to fill my pockets with texture and fabric.
Here is a step-by-step look at making the sticky-back canvas work for me.
