I got this Mini Mickey Sink last Christmas when I was at Walt Disney World. I want to use it in my studio, but I am trying to figure out what to put in it or how to incorporate it! Please leave me a comment letting me know some ways I could use it!

Ep. 1025 – Pearlescent Pan Pastels w/ the CW Screen Print Template

IMG_5567

Today I am showing you the Pearlescent Pan Pastels used with the Crafter’s Workshop Screen Print Template. The Pearlescent Pan Pastels come in Pearlescent Red, Pearlescent Blue, Pearlescent Green, Pearlescent Yellow and Pearlescent Orange. These colours fall between the tints and the base colours. They blend beautifully with all of the other Pan Pastels but add a bit of pearl to your project – perfect for Spring!! On the base of the cards I used the Pearlescent Colours. I then used the base colours for the texture. And finally I used some Metallic Pan Pastels for the Dragonfly. I sprayed SpectraFix Pastel Fixative between each layer of the card. In the video I show you how to make each step of the card!

Ep. 1024 – Wendy Vecchi SISI and Faux Graniteware Technique

IMG_5388

Today we are continuing the card we started on Monday. Wendy Vecchi has some new Stamp It Stencil It sets! I am using the Carnation. I like to stamp my flower onto my card, so I know where I am placing it. Then I stamp it twice onto a piece of paper – I am going to cut out the flower and place it over top to give my card dimension. You then use the stencil around your stamped flower so you can colour it in with Ink and protect your card at the same time. Once I coloured the flower and stem I cut them out and set them aside.

Now it is time for the Faux Graniteware technique. Wendy taught us this at CHA. I used her Mat Minis Flower Pots and I inked it using the Tea Rose Archival Ink. If your ink is went enough you can apply the embossing powder right over top, but I prefer to add a layer of embossing ink, and then my Tea Rose embossing powder. You can do this technique with any colour as long as your ink and embossing powders match. After you melt the powder take a splatter stamp – I used the Tim Holtz stamp from the Bitty Grunge set – with white pigment ink and stamp onto your pot. Then take the Potting Soil Archival ink and add some brown around the edges and a bit on the pot! And you are done! So simple and gives you a really cool Faux Graniteware look!

Then you just need to glue the pieces to your card!

BTS – 03/24/15 – Walt Disney World

IMG_7034

I have spent the last 2 weeks at Walt Disney World. To some people Walt Disney World is just a theme park. To me it is a World of Inspiration! All the thought and imagination that went into the Parks and Resorts blows me away. If you slow down and stop to look at all of the details, you will be inspired by everything you see! Above is a picture of some details of a building at Hollywood Studios! I love the design of this park. You can see some great texture and repeat designs!

This is a painted wall from Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. I love the texture and the writing.

I love this bold print found in Epcot!

And I love all of these carvings in this sign – great for border designs!

If you have a chance to visit any of the Disney Parks, take the time to be inspired!
