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?!?


Rita Barakat
I had such a fun time with these products I made this canvas tag and used the stamps in my planner.

RitaBarakat1
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?

RitaBarakat6
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.

RitaBarakat4
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!

RitaBarakat5
I smashed a little Butter Cream and mixed it with Whipped Spackle for the sun. I used  Texture Gems ™  to outline the edges.

RitaBarakat3
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!

Video Tutorial: Texture Cards Reveal

TiffTextureCardsMay1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a fun technique featuring the new Texture Cards!!! This technique is so versatile because there are so many mediums you can use as both the background and texture on top! There are 8 different textures, which means so much possibility!

I made a little tutorial for you:

 

Can't you see yourself using various mediums in the background? Maybe a melted Paper Crafter Crayons Background with some Texture Luxe™ Gold on top? The sky's the limit!

Closer Look:

MOM Scrapbook Page Using Texture Cards

MOM Scrapbook Page Using Texture Card by Margie Higuchi MAY15

This weekend is Mother's Day and I am far away from mine. So I took a picture of my mom and me from our last visit together and made a scrapbook page.

I wanted to try the new Texture Cards set to create my background. So I grabbed my Whipped Spackle and cardstock to make a sample board on each Texture Card. This is how it came out... Hard to choose, right? LOL! But I ended up using Texture Card #8.

Lately, I seem to be drawn to dress forms.  I want to paint and draw them.  They are feminine, free and full of imagination for the viewer and the artist. No words necessary.  You can fill with color, texture, techniques and/or patterns.  Just simple yummy goodness.
