Mixed Media Canvas by Susanne Rose



Hi my dear crafty friends!

Susanne writing today and I'd like to share a step by step tutorial for this glittery mixed media canvas. Nothing works better to add glitter to a project than WOW! Embossing Glitters! Let's start:

1. Prepare some paper flowers. I used Twinkling H2Os and Neocolor II watercolor crayons to color the flowers. Give them a shape while the paper is wet. Pick the Heart Throb Embossing Glitter to highlight the edges of each flower. Put them together with some flower stamen and add a little green into the middle.


2. I picked a chipboard butterfly from my stash and covered it with Golden Crackle Paste. You can use any other chipboard or wood piece you have on hand. After the paste was dry, I colored it with acrylic ink. It's important you use a waterproof paint in this step. Let the paint dry.


3. Add a layer of black gesso (black paint will also work fine) and wipe it away with baby wipes immediately.

4. Add a layer, or two, of Clear Gloss Ultra High Powder. Add some Irridium Embossing Glitter to the edges of the butterfly.


5. Pick a canvas, turn it arround and cover the frame with some burlap. Cover everything with a thick layer of gesso. Use texture paste and stencils and different coloring mediums to get a shabby look. I used Neocolors II and Acrylic paint.



6. Use black cardstock and cut your title with an E-cutter, or pick any other letters. Cover them with Irridium Glitter and adhere everything to your canvas. I like to use hot glue.




I hope you like my tutorial! Feel free to ask any questions.
Thanks for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.

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…

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…
