Vintage/Shabby Chic Canvas.....Cotton Candy Garden

Thanks so much for joining me for this instructional Canvas Tutorial, walking through an already painted 12x14 Canvas. Some of the product line is from DecoArt, which is the Champaign coloured  Paste, and the Crackle Paste I used. Most of the textures are lovely trims, ribbons, and flowers. The sprays I use are from Lindy's Stamp Gang, plus Distress Inks from Ranger. Thank you for joining me, and if you have any questions about the canvas, please leave me a message. Have a blessed week, and I hope this was inspirational for you.

Cuttlelola Pen Review....Plus, Watercoloring/Drawing an Illustration for Beatrix Potter's Postcard Book.

Welcome to my Craft Room today. I decided to Draw/Watercolour this beautiful image illustrated by Beatrix Potter. I bought a Postcard book on my last Haul, and couldn't wait to draw an image from it, so I could use my Prima Watercolour Pan Sets, and my new CUTTLELOLA PEN I received in the mail yesterday. I saw this on Jennifer Dove's YouTube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-LSBM-FPLk Jennifer is teaches Copic Colouring all over the world. I asked her if I could post her Review, and she kindly said, "YES".  I wanted you to see this Pen in action, so let's go to the Craft room to begin.

My first "Sewing Lace Album"....A Step by Step Tutorial

Welcome to my craft room. I began my first ever Lace Sewing Album for a Christian lady friend of mine, that came to visit us from North Carolina. I am making this for her, and when I finish it, I will send it off in the mail.  I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated beginning this project, because there are so many lace artist's on YouTube that are brilliant when it comes to using laces, trims, appliqué .....and so on. I saw these lace albums on YT, and fell in love with them. I am going to walk you through the process with me, on each page. I hope that it will inspire you to create on for yourself, or for a gift. Let's get started my friends.

Meat Shop Freezer Wrap, Cotton, and an Ink Jet Printer for lovely images every time.

Good Morning, and welcome to my Craft Room. Today begins my Sewing Album using my Laces, and Doilies from my Thrift Store Haul. I wanted to test out Brown Freezer Wrap to see if my Ink
Jet Printer would transfer the images on this colour freezer paper. Well, you will see, that it did, and the cotton was just perfect for the job. I hope that this tutorial will encourage you to use Meat Store Wrap, and Cotton to transfer lovely images for your next project. Have a Blessed Week.
