Hello, it's guest artist Amy here today, to share an altered birdhouse I created using great Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products, especially Gel Medium, which made for great layers of texture on the wooden birdhouse.
It was super fun (and quick) to use the gel medium to adhere the layers of curled paper, and create whimsical shingles, with a nice sheen that allowed glitter to be sprinkled and held easily.
Thanks for having a look at my birdhouse today! I hope you'll give altering a $1.oo or upcycled item a try!
Paper: 7 Dots Studio Ribbon: May Arts, vintage Chipboard: UmWowStudio Embellishments: Prima (Finnabair and Ingvild Bolme), bead landing Flowers: Prima
A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under! I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had: scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace. The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs. One for me to keep and one to give! That's a win-win gift if you ask me!
Post 2 of our holiday $5 gift series! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the next post!
Hi everyone, Mou here with today's tutorial.
I believe that adding your loving handmade touches to a simple gift makes it priceless.
Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you today and I'm really happy to bring you a fun card showing you some easy ways to make a pretty card for your Thanksgiving - or ANY day.
I'm using a variety of textured products: cardstock, wood veneer, and cork to work on (and even a little vellum as a finishing touch). I know that my Stamper's Big Brush Pens loooove porous surfaces and Gelatos ® can be used almost anywhere! So, let me show you my finished card and then sit back and watch the little video I prepared for you. :)
I hope you enjoyed the video. I did have a few technical issues, but hopefully the end product makes it all worth while. :) Wishing you all a VERY Happy Thanksgiving (or a great Thursday, if it's not Thanksgiving in your part of the world).
*All supplies are listed by name/number at the end of the video.*
Lisa Adametz I'm a veteran of the United States Air Force and a stay-at-home "mom" to two beautiful Ragdoll kitties.Creativity is in my blood and I've always been making something. Cross-stitch, silk ribbon embroidery...I love the creative process! I first looked into making cards as a way to keep in touch with family and friends after moving to CA in 2008 and wanting more than store-bought cards could offer. In my eyes cards are personal mini-pieces of art and a part of your soul that you are sending through the mail. I love dimension and color. LOTS of color.
I have been saving corks to make this!! Cute!,
this is beautiful!!
This is so pretty! I love how you have represented so many different companies products! I love mixing and matching to give projects my own unique vibe! TFS!
This is so super sweet and eclectic!
Oh my goodness, this birdhouse is absolutely stunning and flows with vintage charm! I love it so much!!! TFS!
