Believe Mixed Media Canvas



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a new project with you: Believe Mixed Media Canvas. The inspiration for this canvas came from the More Than Words Challenge, which this month was Delicate and Fabric. At first I thought this challenge is not exactly for me, but then I decided to try anyway. Sometimes our first reaction is no because it’s something that is out of our comfort zone but if we challenge ourselves we might even surprise ourselves…       Believe Mixed Media Canvas So I thought about fabric. I’m not so much into lace and I don’t sew. So how can I add fabric to a mixed media project? I decided to add the fabric to the background with a very exciting technique I really like. I used a fabric white fabric and wrapped the canvas with it. However instead of wrapping upholstery style where everything is nice and tight, I created wrinkles and texture with the …

Spooky House from Two Boxes. Graphic 45 DT Project



Hi dear crafty friends! Are you tired of Halloween projects already? If not then I have one more for you: Spooky House from Two Boxes. Graphic 45 DT Project. When you design for Graphic 45 it goes without saying that Halloween is a big thing and you need to come up with a fantastic project. Well… last year I think I did just that!     Spooky House from Two Boxes. Graphic 45 DT Project This spooky house is made from two boxes. The base is made from a Mixed media 5×5 box and the little house on it is made from a ATC book box. The bottom part was easy to make. The box is already black so all I had to do is cover all the sides with the amazing Halloween in Wonderland papers. The house on the top was a little more work. I used the lid of the box as a roof and secured it in …

Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share a Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project I created completely by accident. I planned to create something else and then while planning my project I found a chipboard sheet of a used chipboard shape that I used for another project. The only thing that was left was the empty chipboard sheet, but that gave me an idea…     Recycled Mixed Media Steampunk Project         I wanted to use this chipboard sheet as a base for a mixed media project and include more recycled materials. So I added  a piece of corrugated cardboard and a string. From there the project just had a life of its own and took shape almost automatically. I also added some cogwheels and lots of texture with art stones. The focal point of the project was some metal pieces that were placed on another empty chipboard piece. Then I painted everything with metallic acrylic …

Don’t Be Afraid Art Journal Page



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a new art journal page: Don’t Be Afraid Art Journal Page. I created this page with a really cool and easy technique I want to teach you. I don’t think it has an official name so let’s call it the patterned masking tape technique. This technique is using masking tape as a surface like paper to work on with paint or other materials.   Don’t Be Afraid Art Journal Page The first step is to attach pieces of regular masking tape to a plastic surface so you’ll be able to remove the masking tape when it’s done, as well as clean up any paint. I used a plastic lid of a large container. Arrange the strips of masking tape close together. Use whatever width of tape you have.     Next start adding color to the masking tape. Use acrylic paints with a brush and stencils to add a pattern as well. After the …
