I painted my mini canvas with a distressed look of paint colors (blue, green, yellow, white, and brown) with the same feel and tones as the papers I used, and them let it dry completely.
I took 4 sheets of paper from the stack and either ripped it, distressed with scissors, or used an edge punch. I then used a blue distress ink to distress the paper further. I layered the pages onto canvas like the above picture.
I then assembled the people and the watch onto the canvas (with zipdry glue), then added the family tag stickers and the twine. I love this little mini canvas I now have a special place for it in my scrap room up on the wall.
