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…

Happy Monday everyone. Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Are you excited to make a mess.  I know I am.  This is my first time using Dylusions Paint on a canvas.  I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel here, but maybe you have been thinking of trying these paints.  Or perhaps you haven’t cracked one open in sometime.  Follow along as I learn how to use these paints… and get ready to make a mess!  I am stretching out with these new to me paints and I have to say… what have I been waiting for. I’ll admit I have been intimidated but wow these are amazing. I cut up some make up sponges to apply the paint to the canvas and get your fingers in there!Smearing around with your fingers helps blend and smooth the paint. These paints dry fairly quickly so it’s easy to…

Looking back to the Fall 2013 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine when Christy Riopel crafted up a “Crafty Halloween” feature just in time to inspire all those crafty halloween people out there.  This feature was full of interesting, easy to create and relatively inexpensive ideas to decorate your home for a party, for the big halloween day or to craft with kids at school or in play groups. Scary Apothecary  One of the things I loved the most about Christy’s article was this apothecary set up. Christy simply filled tiny glass bottles of  different shapes and sizes with things like rocks, grains, rice – whatever – she added some labels and BOOM – you got yourself a scary looking medicine cabnet! How fun!!!! Spellbook Add even MORE spookiness to your medicine cabnet by creating a SPELLBOOK! This is so Harry Potter. You will have a ton of fun adding  your…

Ghoultide Greetings Mixed Media Wall Hanging By Katelyn Grosart Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! With Halloween right around the corner I thought that it would be fun to share with you how to create a mixed media wall hanging piece as a perfect home décor addition to any spot in your home. Using stamps, charms and embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and pairing them with Ranger Ink products, I was able to create a fun piece. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I have a tutorial for you, so that you can recreate it in the comforts of your own home. To start, you’ll need a 5 ½” x 5 ½” wood piece. I managed to pick one up that was already meant to be used as a wall hanging. Once you have your piece in front of you, you’ll need to apply 2…

It’s that time of year again — time for my annual trip to IKEA to get dorm appropriate stuff for “the kid”….  And, if I’m perfectly honest, it becomes more in an inspiration station for me! Wondering around the store I came across a little bin with some paper frames shaped as buildings in them.   The GLON set was meant to be coloured with markers…  but I had other plans for them!!  …and I dug out “the kid’s” grade 12 picture to show you!
