Mixed Media is all about trusting the process.  It’s always messy in the middle and we have to let the creativity take over.  Nicole here and I am sooooo excited to play with Prima.  For this tutorial, I am using Finnabair.  This is my first time exploring the textures, shimmer, and detail of these fabulous mediums and paints.  I started by applying some torn book pages with 3D Gloss Gel Transparent making sure to apply an even coat over the paper.  Add a layer with the Offset Dots Clear Stamp using permanent ink, Ranger ink Archival Jet Black. Add a layer of texture with Plaster Paste and mix in a little mint- green Patina Effect Paste to tint your Plaster Paste. Layer the 6×9 Passiflora Stencil and apply the Plaster Paste in an even layer. While the Plaster Paste was drying I cut “trust” with Sizzix XL Typo Lower die.  Adhere…

Anyone up for a bright summery project today?  Hello friends Nicole Wright here today sharing a detailed tutorial on this Painted Burlap Canvas.  You may have seen this in the current issue of the magazine.  I thought I would share a more detailed tutorial using Dylusions Paints.  These bright acrylic paints add a bold look to any project. Apply Ranger’s Dylusions Paint directly to Super Stock Card Stock using a sponge covering your paper.  I used a baby whip to smear around the Dylusions Paint.  Blot some Tangerine Dream randomly.  Then layer your stencil and using a sponge add Dylusions Paint Fresh Lime.  Repeat this using random colours and stencils for your all your floral die cuts. Yes, you can ink on Burlap with Dylusions Paints.  Add random colours of Dylusions Paints using a sponge.  Layer any stencil you want and use your sponge to ink through your stencil.  Move your…

Hey there everyone! Cathie Allan here today sharing with you one of my articles from the Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – Creating Faux Mini-Canvases. I know you are going to LOVE IT! Faux Mini-Canvases by Cathie Allan In this issue, we are going to create “faux mini-canvases.” This special combination of background colours and the way we apply the ink layer after layer will totally have you thinking that we worked on canvas.

Hello everyone! Jayme Loge here today! For my day job, I work in a school as an education assistant. In previous years, my assignment has been to provide literacy support to several classes. This meant working with several teachers and a rotating group of kids. Due to student needs, my assignment this past year has been in one classroom. It was a wonderful experience to work closely with one teacher and student group. I decided to get the kids together to work on a special end of the year gift for the teacher. They ended up creating this wonderful canvas! Supplies Used: Canvas- Michaels 16×20 Stencils- Donna Downey (Keyhole Splatter, Bubbles, Halftone Dots); Tim Holtz (Speckles, Lace) Paint- Ranger Dylusions Stamps- Frog’s Whiskers Ink Ink- Clearsnap We worked for weeks in a secret location, kids giving up their recess time in turn so everyone got a chance to contribute.

Today on the blog we welcome Katelyn Grosart Hi Everyone! I’m Katelyn Grosart and I live in beautiful Calgary, Alberta with my boyfriend of 6 years.  I’ve spent the last 7 years in the papercrafting world  creating cards, mixed media pages, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered items. In my spare time when I’m not crafting I like to read a good book and when the weather is nice, you’ll often find me outside taking advantage of the beautiful Canadian weather. I’m excited to be a guest blogger today for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The wonderful ladies at the magazine asked if I wanted to guest blog for them and I couldn’t pass up this amazing opportunity.  With summer right around the corner I thought that I would share with you how to create your own under the sea themed reverse canvas featuring Graphic 45’s “Voyage Beneath the Sea”…
