Key to my Heart Canvas

Hi there WOW fans, I am so excited to be showing you my canvas project today.  I absolutely love, love love how it turned out.
I just love all the different textures going on here and I can't wait to put it in a frame.


I had a canvas from another project that I just didn't like any more that was painted a light pink.  I sketched out a heart in the center of the canvas.  Using a stencil and some spackle (spackle is used to patch walls and is found at the hardware store, it is very inexpensive).  Pour your embossing powder over the spackle and lightly tap off the extra and heat set.  Not only do you have a wonderful glittery effect but the spackle gives it more dimension like it is double embossed.  Give it a try the results are awesome.

Here is a close up of my flower cluster.

For the heart I tore small scraps of patterned paper and adhered them with Mod Podge, when I was satisfied with that I Mod Podged some white tissue paper over top to the patterned paper scraps, making sure it was nice and wrinkled giving my heart tons of texture.  While the Mod Podge is still wed I poured on the Neutral Shimmer glitter embossing powder and heat set it.  Now it really sparkles and shimmers.  Using gelatos I randomly colored over areas of the heart and using a wet brush lightly blended it in.  I used a pit pen around the edge of the heart and again went over it with a wet brush to blend it in.
Now you are ready to embellish.  I wrapped bakers twine around the canvas and a cluster of flowers and ribbons and tied it all up with a key.

Heart of Roses

Hello!
I adore creating 3D items, so a Home Decor theme this month is right up my street!
I have created this piece of wall art, using LOADS of shabby rose embellishments....
The base is an old frame that I have distressed with paint and a crackle medium. A little bit of brown ink sponged on top gives a great vintage look! Once the frame was done, I started to create the roses. Yes, this takes a little while as there are 20 in total, but the shabby rose mould can create three at once so that helps!
19 of the roses were created simply with white embossing powder...
The 'accent' rose was created using Primary Apple Red powder, with a tiny pinch of Black to turn the bright red into more of an 'ox blood' type colour. I finished my piece with a word created from plastic letters..
Despite the fact that creating so many flowers is a little time consuming, this is a nice simple project you can have a go at yourself! Why not create a square or an initial letter with your embellishments!
See you soon,
Trish xxxx

From Pebble to Paperweight


From Pebble to Paperweight

 The theme this month is "Home Decor" so I decided to make my project by using something from nature to use in the house. You could make paperweights or even door stops if your pebbles were big enough.

Pebble Paperweight                                                     From this
                                                   


Firstly I painted my pebble white then embossed it with Verdigris and Gold powders using the honeycomb stamp.

I then melted some Apple Red primary, Gold Pearl  and Melt it powders in a Melt pot and used the Forget Me Not and Large Rose  flower moulds to create the flowers. I then melted more Melt It powder and Green Primary then poured this into the leave mould.



One set I stuck the flowers and leaves onto the pebble for decoration with silicone glue.

Products used

Honeycomb stamp

Verdigris powder
Metallic Gold Rich Pale
Apple Red primary
Green Metallic
Gold Pearl .

DIY Baby Room Art

Hello all!  I have some super exciting news...  I'm going to be a Nana for the first time.  My daughter is due to have her first wee Baby in May!  She loves owls so I have been creating some art work to go into the baby's room.  With this months theme being DIY I thought it would be a perfect project to share.


I created the background first by painting the two blues,  a light and dark with Tim holtz distress paint as I knew that it doesn't run when you apply other products on top.  I then used a star mask and added a layer of  multi-medium.  Once the multi-medium was dry I then applied a layer of  White fab foil on top of the stars. I just cut strips of the foil and rub it over the multi-medium.

To added more dimension to my project I used Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter.  This embossing powder is a must to have in your kit!  It gives any project  a lovely shimmer.


WS02 Neutral Ultra Shimmer

I did not add the glitter to every star.  Just random ones all over the project. 



To finish my project off I up-cycled and old frame I had found in an op shop.  Because My project is multi layers I took the glass out.  It will still be easy to clean as I have added a sealant over the entire page for ease of cleaning.  

WOW! Embossing Pen

I used my Wow Embossing Pen to go along the edge of the Frame  and then added some more Neutral Ultra Shimmer to bring the Frame and art together.  


I hope they like it.  She found out that she was having a wee boy so it will fit perfectly into his room.
That's all I have to share today. Please let me know what you think!  I would love to hear.  Until next time, happy scrappin everyone xox Donna

Upcycle a Bottle into a Valentine's Day Vase

I love a chance to upcycle or recycle glass jars. Some are so well shaped and with a little touch of creativity, they can add the perfect decor detail to any room.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I felt the need to come up with some home decor to get us in the mood. (Yes, I know we just passed Christmas/Hanukkah and New Years...but holidays are always fun!)

I decorated a spare bottle (formerly the olive oil holder) with Ultra High Gold Wow Embossing Powder and our Sexi Hexi clear stamp. In two easy steps, I had a beautiful vase.

For the added "Valentine-detail", I melted Vintage Candy Cane embossing powder and poured it into our Ornate Heart silicone mold. I attached it to the vase and voila! Ready for a single stem red rose and baby's breath.

It'll be beautiful on my vanity!

Bringing design to a light

I love the theme that we were given to work with this month!
I knew what I wanted to make right away!
I have been slowly creating and moving into a crafty studio in my house and I wanted a nice light shade for the ceiling light.
So this is what I created....

The light was on when I took these pictures so it's quite hard to see the colours, but scroll down and you will see a close up shot of the butterflies.
I die cut lots of different butterflies and chose my colour scheme.. I used melt it powder, frozen berries,primary purple orchid, purple glitz, violet pearl and blue topaz

I wanted a purple mix so I took a silver dish and combined my purples.
Then I inked the butterflies and embossed them, one at a time.
To attach them to my lampshade I used a hot glue gun.
Here is the close up of the butterflies on the shade...
I think they look really pretty.
We would love to see how you use your embossing powders around the home with your DIY projects, play along with the challenge and you could win some WOW! powders too!
Happy crafting
