The Canvas Corps Brands Crew has teamed up with Words & Paintery for the January Challenge. You were free to just let your creative side roam and use the colors and suggested quote as inspiration in any type of mixed media creation from an art journal page to a card. I opted to make a card and had so much fun playing with all my new mists and papers.
I started with the Canvas Home Basics Beans & Bags Mix and Match Pad. Oh wow if you haven't explored these pads yet now is the time. You get 16 pages, stitched together at the top, of everything from printed fabric to heavy weight designer cardstock to burlap and canvas. A little bit of everything to try and something to work with any project you might have in mind. I'll link to all the products I used from the stores at the bottom of this blog post.
My card is a 5" x 6" created on a Kraft cardbase. I've layered several of the pages from my Canvas Home Basics Beans & Bags Mix and Match Pad including the burlap (which I frayed) at the back, the printed paper, and my watercolored paper.
I used a combination of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in Denim Blue, Rum Punch and Coffee shop with Canson 140 lb watercolor paper for my background and the colors in the challenge. I'll show you on the video the effects of the mists on the paper.
The flower is cut using the canvas from the pad, I die cut it with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals BIGZ die. On the middle petal layer I removed every other petal, then misted them all with Tattered Angels Rum Punch Glimmer Mist. I inserted the brad in the middle and while the petals were still damp twisted them and allowed them to dry. The little whispers behind are the threads I removed from the mat of burlap, see nothing gets tossed when your a crafter does it.
The hearts on the front and inside are Canvas Home Basics Tags & Ties. On mine I painted them with Tattered Angels Roses R Red Glimmer Glam, ran them with the Swiss Dot embossing folder through my big shot and finally accented them with Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist and Rub 'n Buff in Antique Gold.
I decided to use the mat I did on camera for the inside of the card, added the second heart and a stamp from Kaisercraft. I hope you'll join me on the video I'll share how I made the card and a start to finish of the assembly process.
Thanks everyone for sharing your time with me!
