This is gorgeous!

Ooo~!! Cool effect with the Paper Craft Crayons! Wonderful ways to color and create shadows on this beautiful canvas project <3 I will have to try and use my heating tool to melt the crayons - great idea!

Wow, such a cool project! Love the stencil idea and your coloring ideas too! I would love to try something like this with one of the stencils I own. Thanks for sharing.

This is so pretty. The frame around your adorable kitties has such great dimension. Love it! TFS!

Very beautiful. I love it.

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

    If only I had the confidence to put what I create online on a regular basis! Good luck to those who apply! :)

    Thanks! Lisa

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
