Hello everyone! Pam Bray here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog today celebrating Coffee!!! I love Coffee, the smell, the taste, cold or hot…it is the best! I am sharing a step out tutorial on how to create your very own coffee mixed media canvas. Don’t worry…if you aren’t a coffee lover, do tea or change the idea up completely but more than anything enjoy the technique. Begin by adhering a few pieces of corrugated paper to the top of a 5″ x 7″ canvas. Dry brush White Titanium, Burnt Sienna and Yellow Oxide to top making sure that each layer dries. Stamp beans from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Fireside Stamp Set to the prepared canvas using black ink and bean stamp. Repeat with coffee rings from the Blends Stamp Set. Paint each set of the beans using ColorBox Nutmeg Blends Ink. Apply ink to craft sheet; mist with water and paint with a paintbrush. Die cut Ring String using white cardstock. Apply embossing ink to top. Emboss with Rock Candy Embossing Powder. Die cut Stack Deckle from white cardstock. Apply embossing ink and Rock Candy Embossing Powder to top. Stamp Coffee Sign stamp to white cardstock using embossing ink; emboss with Onyx Frost Embossing Powder. Ink over top with ColorBox Blends Ink. Stamp cup from Fireside Stamp set with black ink. Apply ColorBox Blends ink to craft sheet; mist with water. paint cup. Dry. Add Rock Candy Embossing Powder to cup. Adhere frame and cup to canvas. Apply embossing ink to top of a metal button; add Rock Candy Embossing Powder. Heat Set. I hope you try your hand at creating a fun and easy mixed media canvas.
