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.

Hello, 2019 and a new year filled with opportunities and new beginnings! January is a month where we naturally think about new goals and what we want to achieve in the coming year. For me, I’d like to slow down in 2019. But what does that mean? I’ve had to think about the ways in which I can make that happen like device-free time, enjoying the outside more often and finding time to read. I love the process of evaluating goals so be sure to make time for yourself to do the same. Stampin’ Up! has a monthly subscription called Paper Pumpkin where you are sent everything you need to create a crafty project. These are great especially when you are going on vacation or the cabin. You can grab it and go! That’s exactly what I did while vacationing in Florida this Holiday Season. Below is a picture of…

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…
