Fearless Mixed Media Canvas

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my Fearless Mixed Media Canvas I created for Words & Paintery challenge. The theme was to use red colors and give an interpretation to the quote: Courage is not the absence of fear, which I think is a very true quote, at least for me. I always try not to let fear guide me both in my life and in my art.     Fearless Mixed Media Canvas I started this canvas with an idea. I was working on a different project, using some chipboard cogwheels and when they were all finished only the outer sheet remained. I looked at it and knew immediately I had to use it in a project. I just loved the square sheet with the different size holes. So I started with adding texture to a canvas with modeling paste and then glued the chipboard sheet on the canvas. The textured paste created enough height that the chipboard …

Online Classes are up for grabs!

Hi dear crafty friends! I have an announcement to make! Online Classes are up for grabs! As you all know one of my great passions is teaching. Being able to share my knowledge with others, inspire them and help them create fills my life with joy. For awhile I’ve been searching for a way to teach beyond the weekly video tutorials which are limited in time and content volume and the VIP Room which is a long term commitment. I’m happy I found a way to overcome both these limitations.      Online Classes are up for grabs! My online classes are all hosted on a private classroom that gives me, as a teacher, the option to teach in a variety of tools like PDF files, links, video tutorials and more as well as interact with my students. Each class has a class forum that is dedicated to the class subject only and allows the students to ask me questions, …

Washi Tape Binding Mini Album Tutorial

Hi dear crafty friends! I often get asked about binding mini albums. There are lots of ways to bind a mini album and today I want to share with you a Washi Tape Binding Mini Album Tutorial. This binding technique is great for small mini albums that don’t have a lot of pages and are not too bulky. All you need for this binding technique is a wide washi tape and some cardstock.     Washi Tape Binding Mini Album Tutorial When you create a mini album you usually create the mini album first and then bind it allowing it room to expand. This is necessary for photos and journaling and of course interactive mechanisms. In this album we do the same however the spacers we insert to allow room for the album to expand are not necessary.  This method of binding is the most basic method there is and can be applied with larger albums. If you do bind …

Be Fearless Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my new project Be Fearless Art Journal Page that I created for the More Than Words challenge. The subject of the challenge this month was Grunge and the word Fearless. Exactly the challenge for me!     Be Fearless Art Journal Page I love the gunge style, which is sometimes confused with steampunk (which I also love). Grunge is more about strong and dark colors, distressing and a sort of a punk look. It can be disorganized, graffiti, in your face look that is translated to a project. I decided to create an art journal page, because I thought it is the most appropriate medium for such an approach.       So I started with some spraying and then added stenciling, all in black, brown and strong reds. Then I drew a face and painted it in a yellow-green color so it will give the maximum contrast to the background. Finally I …
