For me, there's nothing quite as fun as adding layers of paint, pigment, gesso and paper together along with all kinds of bits and pieces. I've had this project on my project to do list for quite some time and I'm so excited to have finally gotten around to making it.
We're so excited to be hopping with Waffle Flowers this week! Here's some information about this wonderful company via their website:

Rita Barakat here today and I had the pleasure of working with: Planner Add On - Weather 1 Be My Guest stamp set Partly Cloudy DieAren't these tiny stamps adorable?!?
I had such a fun time with these products I made this canvas tag and used the stamps in my planner.
I am sure you keep a busy (crazy) schedule just like me! Add a few PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens with these weather stamps make keeping a schedule so much more fun! So how about a tutorial on the tag?
First I drew on the edges of this little canvas tag. I spread the color around with a wet paint brush and set aside to dry.
I used the die to cut out these sweet clouds and sun. I cover the clouds with Whipped Spackle to make them look light an fluffy!
I smashed a little Butter Cream and mixed it with Whipped Spackle for the sun. I used Texture Gems ™ to outline the edges.
I stamped the words "hello sunshine" directly on the little canvas, then added the sun and the clouds with a little Gel Medium. SUch a fun little project! We hope you can find time to create and make something today! To enter our $50 product giveaway, leave a comment here each day throughout the blog hop (May 12-14).

Hi! Dana Tatar here sharing a star marquee light that I altered to add a little glamor to my craft space. I used one of my favorite color combinations, gold and blue, for this project. I had a lot of fun adding dimensional stars to this piece with the NEW Gold Texture Luxe™!
Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®'s $50 prize, comment below each day this week. One random winner will be selected on April 20th.
Hi everyone! Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.
I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas. Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.
Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.
On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set. I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface. Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.
Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife. Allow to dry completely.
Draw a shape (I created a bee shape) with a PITT® Artist Pen and use as a guide to backstitch using colored floss.
Be sure to hop along with our lovely Design Team all of this week to see what we've made with the Canvas Corp. products and check out THEIR blog to see what they've done with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products this week, too! I hope you enjoyed my project!

If you've seen our new packaging for the Mixed Media Stencils 101 Collection, you might recognize this piece. I did the artwork for that package! I used lots of media on this one!
Using a Mixed Media Square Journal board, I applied some lace and fabric tape to create a background texture.
I needed some gorgeous color so after priming the chip with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso, I added a rainbow of Gelatos® colors to the tag. Gorgeous!
Happy weekend crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you and I have a cool tag to share today. I love repurposing things I get in the mail to make tags and cards, or pieces of a canvas. Today's repurposed bit turned into a tag. Lots of texture and oh-so-pretty!
Let me show you how I created it!
We’re hopping with May Arts this week! We’re so excited to be partnering again with them and crafting with their fabulous ribbons.
Are you ready for an inspiration filled week with giveaways? Here’s how you can enter: Stop by our blog and the May Arts blog each day this week and leave a comment. Two winners will win $50 of product from us, and 3 spools of ribbons from May Arts. The hop will close at 11PM on February 15th. The winners will be announced here the next day.
Today, I have a canvas I made for the lovey-dovey day! I wanted tons of texture because the ribbon I was sent was full of possibilities in adding texture to any project!
This canvas emerged from many layers of materials. I started with applying papers with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium. Once it was dry, I added thicker materials like canvas strips, textured papers, and May Arts Burlap, May Arts Open Weave, and May Arts multi- sized pearl strands.
So, I used one of Faber-Castell's new Texture Luxe in both Gold and Silver through the new Mixed Media Stencils. I used a palette knife to apply them very thickly. It took awhile for the Luxe to dry but after leaving to go workout, I came back to add more color!
For this project, I wanted a Valentine's theme so reds, metallic pinks, and metallic browns (from the Steampunk set) were the color scheme of choice! The Gelatos® colors are vibrant and mix with water to create fun drips and puddles of color to make my project pop!
For this project, I used Gelatos® colors in Cherry Red, Metallic Melon, Bubble Gum, Iced Chai, and Iced Coffee. Starting with the pinks and working to the darker colors, I watered them down on my craft mat and used a brush to drip or brush them on.

Hi crafty friends! I am here to share a project that I made using the new Texture Lux and our new Texture Stencils! I love this stuff!
The Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Texture Luxe in gold is gorgeous! Actually, ALL three colors are gorgeous but I used Gold on this board. Using the Gelatos® Steampunk color set was used first through the new Texture Stencils. I used the hexagons and dots for this page. Using a dauber, I put the color through the stencil.
Wow..Its Amazing !
