Bouyant Blossoms with Jessica Larios

 I am so very lucky to be here with WOW! Embossing Powder!! I can't believe I managed to make it here, but I am feeling blessed. Today I'd like to share with you a canvas I made for this month's inspirations. As I had mentioned in my first post I had decided to go with a traditional, yet, modern take on springtime blossoms with a classic twist. As you can see, I chose bright colors with an added bit of dark undertones to give each project deep contrast using WOW! Embossing Powders. This is quite an extravagant piece. So many techniques and design angles went into its creation. I hope you try some of these techniques for yourself and like the results just as much as I do.

***Let's get our heat on, shall we?!***

1. Begin by laying down a nice coat of gesso
*Hint: I know they come pre gessoed but I like to do it anyway*
2. Alter your chipboard flourishes using two different colors of embossing powders
*Hint: I used two separate pieces of paper so I could quickly get the powder on them*
3. Now emboss the frame using the Gold Pearl embossing powder
*Once the canvas is dry we can have some stenciling fun*
4. Using your texture paste randomly add to your canvas through the stencil
*Hint: You want your frame to be able to lay flat on the canvas*
5. Before the texture dries, add Jealous Guy to the texture and heat set it
*Hint: The effects on dry and wet texture paste are different, while wet the texture raises higher*
THAT is some beautifulness, am I wrong?!?
6. Alter your castings using waxes and acrylic paint
7. To bring in some contrast, I embossed the clean edges of the canvas using Crusty Copper
*Hint: To give it a softer look, I used some acrylic paint to tone down the embossing powder a bit*
8. Now layer your flowers one by one
9. Add the pins randomly under your beautiful floral gathering
10. You will now want to place your chipboard flourishes randomly throughout your creation
*Hint: Only add glue to the last petal or two as to not get glue on your flowers*
11. Place your metal quote down in the bottom left-hand corner using your favorite adhesive 12. Using the same adhesive, let's get bugging, add your castings to the canvas
13. As your finishing touch, add some colored pebbles

Here are some close-ups for you to enjoy!

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!

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 a
