LOVE the Zutter Canvas

While out on a ride one day I stopped at a little store in Warner, NH called WingDoodle. Wow...what a gem of a store! While taking it all in I came across a product by Golden, Fiber Paste. It spiked my curiosity so I bought me a jug of it!! I brought it home to play with. As it was time to for me to begin creating my August Zutter Zister projects I knew what I was going to do, so I pulled out my.........ZUTTER CANVAS ART BOARD COVERS......I think they are my favorite Bind-it-All cover, to work with, by far!!

So the creative process began!! IMPORTANT NOTE: do not gob on tooo much Fiber Paste on the side you are going to bind!!

I proceeded to smear the cover with Fiber Paste....and let it dry. Now, before I added anything else to the cover, I pulled out my Bind-It-All to punch the holes in the cover.

I now began to build the cover.....I cut fabric with Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die and colored them with Distress Reinker Mixtures, covered them with Multi Medium, dabbed on Distress Stickles. I created some of my GrungePaper Roses, nestled them all together and there you have it!!

For the inside of the book, I used the Zutter 7.5 x 5 Inner pages.  They don't fit this cover, so I had to cut them down to size but it was worth it cause I love the weight of this paper. Now I am going to totally surprise you with what I did next..........I pulled out my Distrezz It All and used it on the edges of the inner pages. I did a fun three hole punch on each end of the cover - just a little something different.

There you have it!  Zutter Canvas Artboard and Fiber Paste.  Punch...bind....Voila!
