Key to my Heart Canvas

Hi there WOW fans, I am so excited to be showing you my canvas project today.  I absolutely love, love love how it turned out.
I just love all the different textures going on here and I can't wait to put it in a frame.


I had a canvas from another project that I just didn't like any more that was painted a light pink.  I sketched out a heart in the center of the canvas.  Using a stencil and some spackle (spackle is used to patch walls and is found at the hardware store, it is very inexpensive).  Pour your embossing powder over the spackle and lightly tap off the extra and heat set.  Not only do you have a wonderful glittery effect but the spackle gives it more dimension like it is double embossed.  Give it a try the results are awesome.

Here is a close up of my flower cluster.

For the heart I tore small scraps of patterned paper and adhered them with Mod Podge, when I was satisfied with that I Mod Podged some white tissue paper over top to the patterned paper scraps, making sure it was nice and wrinkled giving my heart tons of texture.  While the Mod Podge is still wed I poured on the Neutral Shimmer glitter embossing powder and heat set it.  Now it really sparkles and shimmers.  Using gelatos I randomly colored over areas of the heart and using a wet brush lightly blended it in.  I used a pit pen around the edge of the heart and again went over it with a wet brush to blend it in.
Now you are ready to embellish.  I wrapped bakers twine around the canvas and a cluster of flowers and ribbons and tied it all up with a key.

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
