Holiday Canvas Collage: I Could Have Danced All Night

  P1040850

Hi everyone! It's Christina (seena) Young here with a pretty collage project that is simple to put together using matte medium. As October ends I'm thinking ahead to the holiday season. All the festivities inspired my canvas. Well, that and I stumbled upon a used bookshop going out of business and scored some wonderful sheet music for a song (ha ha).

Be Happy Layout by Jen Matott

P1020506

Do you have a child who just loves art? Young children love to make messes and create with wild abandon. I often sit with my kids and enjoy watching them just discover what the colors will do.  My son doesn't worry about what his work looks like too much.  This day he was just having a great time creating colors and adding water!  Sometimes I have to remember to be more like that and not worry too much about placement, color choice and just play!

I took this fun printed paper by Studio Calico and scribbled all over it with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Color Pencils. 

I wanted to mimic the fun scribbling in my son's artwork.

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you this Tuesday and I have a special card for you in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here's how I made the card:

Blog Hop with Unity Stamps! Day 5 with Jen

We have a blog hop with Unity Stamps this week! We’ve always been really impressed by their stamps so we’re so excited to be hopping with them!

Today, I'm happy to be posting with my project using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products and Unity Stamps!

P1020417I used this adorable set of stamps from Unity Stamps.  This one is called Grace Girl.  She is such a sweet autumn lady.  I knew I wanted to use autumn colors so I chose to create a canvas board with the Steampunk Set of Gelatos®.

P1020408I started by applying vintage dictionary paper and sheet music with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium.  Once dry, I added the Gelatos® and added Gelato sprays with the Gelatos Mist Maker Kit to create a mixed media effect.
P1020414I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen in black and brown to stamp the image over the colors. 

P1020418

P1020420I used a stencil to create leaf shapes using an Essential PITT Artist Pen in black.

P1020419Finally, I added a doily with the sentiment stamped on there and some embellishments.  This is going right on my mantel as part of my autumn decor!

Blog Hop with Unity! Day 4 with Tiffany

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n (1)

Hello Blogosphere! Welcome to Day 4 of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  It's Tiffany here and I thought I'd show you a timeless Faux Leather Technique with Gelatos and how I used that super cute Boots, Class and Sass Itty Bitty stamp set from Unity!

TiffUnityMain

You'll need the following supplies for this tutorial:

TiffUnityStep1

1. For a Faux Leather look, color an A2 card base with various earth-toned gelatos (cinnamon, iced chai, butterscotch).

TiffUnityStep2

2. Blend with a wet paintbrush. 

TiffUnityStep3

3. Spray with water and ball it up to create wrinkles. The water makes the paper more pliable!

TiffUnityStep4

4. Flatten the balled up paper, allow to dry, and then apply some chocolate Gelatos with a foam wedge onto the wrinkles! EASY peasy!

TiffUnityCloseup

Stitching adds that extra fabric charm to your Faux Leather panel!  I had so much fun designing with Unity Stamp Co. & hope you enjoyed this short Faux Leather Tutorial!

Thanks for hopping by,
