Maximize your supplies – moments

This is a DT layout for Susan K. Weckesser that was created for a special collaboration with Want2Scrap. This layout has a few cool techniques you can learn about from this video tutorial. you ever had a paper you wish you didn’t have to create a layout with? What I mean is that creating a layout meant to lose a pattern on it. Well I found a solution…cut out what ever you don’t want to lose and use it! The holes in the paper are covered with other elements or embellishments and this way you get to “eat the cake and leave it whole” at the same time! Another fun technique I used on this layout is double embossing. It’s a great way to create a double color effect with your embossing powders. Have fun creating!Einat

What goes around comes around…

Today Saturday MIXTRAVAGANZA video tutorial is all about personal creation and inspiring messages. Art journals is an amazing way to put your feelings and words into artistic creation. It’s a really fun way to express yourself! Art journals is all about mixed media. Creating backgrounds, images and sentiments from a verity of materials in a whole range of techniques. In my art journal page I used mainly acrylic paints in different techniques. The most important thing about art journaling is that it’s by you and for you. it can be your book of ideas, inspiration and motivation. It can be filled with colors, inspirational sentences, thought, graphic and design ideas etc.But the really most important part is to have fun! Have fun creating!Einat

Box of Treasures

Recently I seemed to have gotten in touch with my vintage side. The ephemera, steampunk, metaly side. It all started with a really small metal embellishments collection that was lying in a drawer forgotten. I don’t know when or why but I started playing with it and before I knew it I started collecting old screws, hinges and cog wheels. I bought small treasures and jewelry parts in flee markets and soon enough I had a box full of treasures. It was time I made something with them don’t you think? So I took Tim Holtz’s Configuration Box and started filling it with my treasures. I covered the box with the beautiful Sunrise-Sunset collection by Prima and covered all the edges with washi tape. Then I started to have fun! Have fun creating!Einat

Saturday MIXTRAVAGANZA – Texture Magic Mixed Media Canvas

I love texture. I think it adds so much to each creation, it makes it more 3 dimensional and interesting and not flat and boring. This Saturday MIXTRAVAGANZA is all about texture! Join me in creating a canvas that is full of texture magic! It’s really simple…you glue any embellishment you want on your canvas. I’ve used metal embellishments and paper flowers. These embellishments create a pattern, a texture, a visual interesting shapes on the flat canvas. Then cover everything with gesso and spray! Have fun creating!Einat
