Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

I finally got enough courage to enter the Graphic 45 Design Team audition. I’ve been a huge fan of Graphic 45 for a long time and being on the design team have been my dream forever. I finally got the courage during the last CHA Mega show where I took a Graphic 45 class. in that class we had to cover a box with papers and create a top for it and then cover some coasters with papers as well. It was a beautiful project but as you know I’m not a fan of copy paste so I decided to change the project a little and bind the coasters into a mini album and add a few interactive surprises. I was halfway done when the class was over and the Graphic 45 team liked it so much I promised to finish it before the end of the show. On the last day of the show I went to the Graphic …

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN WASHI TAPE

  Inside: how to make your own washi tape   Have you ever been in the middle of making a craft project and you needed a specific supply and didn’t have it? It is the most frustrating situations because it can put the entire project on hold and if you’re like me you have zero patience when it comes to finishing a project. What’s the answer? Make your own! This is what happened when I needed some washi tape for a project I was working on and didn’t have the right color and pattern. So I made my own!!     WHAT IS WASHI TAPE   Washi tape is a decorative adhesive tape made from traditional Japanese paper that’s great for craft or journaling. The name washi can be translated to “Japanese paper” simply meaning wa (Japanese) and shi (paper). Unlike western paper which is made from tree pulp, it’s made from Japanese shrubs so its benefits are many: No …

HOW TO MAKE UNUSUAL ALTERED MATCHBOXES AND EASILY RECYCLE THEM

  Inside: how to make altered matchboxes and easily recycle them into a drawer vanity.   I don’t like to throw things away. I’m not a hoarder but when I throw some things away, especially boxes of all types it always seems like a waste. I always think to myself there must be something to do with them instead of throwing them away.     Usually I end up throwing them into the recycling bin, but every now and then I get a really creative idea – altered matchboxes! This time I took all my empty matchboxes and made them into a miniature drawer vanity.   WHAT IS ALTERED ART   Altered art is the transformation or alteration of ordinary, everyday objects into decorative pieces using a wide variety of different techniques and materials, for example, rubber stamps, fabric, paper, paint and fibres. It’s a broad term that includes many artistic styles or genres, but at its most basic describes …

Ice Resin Pendants

I’m not a jewelry maker but every now and then I like to play with a little bit of jewelry making. It’s actually kind of easy if you try it. My favorite material to play with is Ice Resin, which is  a 2-part epoxy resin. Part A is the Resin. It has a slightly blue tint and Part B is the hardener. It has a very slight yellow tint. It comes in a plunger that dispenses equal parts of both parts and is really to use. It’s really fun to play with and the only problem, at least for someone like me who likes immediate satisfaction, is that you have to wait a few hours before it’s dry. I made three pendants and tried a few things and techniques. First I tried different mediums to color the resin. Both Perfect Pearls powder and acrylic paint worked very well and blended completely with the resin. You can create different degrees of transparency …

Mixed Media Art Journal Page – Journey

I have a new art journal that I’m really excited to start! I decided that the pages in the new journal will have a theme. It seem to be more challenging and inspiring this way. The first page is all about the journey…a fitting subject for the first page of a new journal. I started with coloring the background with two shades of blue Gelatos. They mix very well together when you wet them a little and use a baby wipe. I added some texture to the background with dimensional paint and a stencil. I drew a few clouds with a white oil pastel. Then I created the mountain by adding layers of tissue paper. I also added a trail with a brown oil pastel. I cut my image from an old photo and glued it on top of the mountain. I stamped some houses on white cardstock and colored them with Gelatos. I cut them and glued them to …
