Quick Home Decor

 Hello everyone! Peggy here and I am so proud to be on the Craftwell USA design team for another term! A big Welcome to my fellow design team members. 
Today I bring you a quick canvas that I placed in a frame at the last minute, but I wanted to show you how I made this canvas. 

The first thing I did to the canvas was spray paint it using my eBrush system with attachments. I used a dark blue marker for the bottom and a second lighter marker for the top half. 
Then I took out my siphon system by Craftwell filling my well with parts titanium white, liquid medium and water.  I added highlights as a reflection of light from above. 

Next I picked a coloring book picture that I liked and using some gel medium I pasted the picture right out of my book onto my canvas.  I brushed both the picture and the canvas and left to dry. 

After drying I wet the canvas with water spraying to moisten the paper for removal. 
the picture face down was the picture that was revealed. 
I lined the entire picture with a black gelly roll pen. 

I used some painter's tape to tape off the edges of my canvas and sprayed them with my eBrush to create a frame. 
I hope you enjoyed today's quick project using our eBrush by Craftwell and checking out our siphon system!

mixed media tags sprayed with eBrush System




Happy Monday! Peggy here, I am excited to show you my mixed media tags sprayed with my eBrush system by CraftwellUSA
I started with some fabulous background paper and made myself a tag with a pocket front I added flowers, burlap and old vintage papers and I sprayed the edges with my GB8 markers and my eBrush.  I had some cream colored seam binding I also sprayed to match my vintage shabby theme.  I utilized my Teresa Collins Cut N Boss with her Twill Herringbone embossing folder with some acetate for a pocket.  After spraying I assembled all my papers and embellishments and glued everything down with liquid glue except the acetate I used glue dots. 


 I hope you enjoyed todays tags and I encourage you to check out Craftwell's Web Site and check out the blog and facebook frequently for information and any sales or exciting news!.


 Have a great week everyone! Happy Easter!

Spring Card with Craftwell USA

 Hello! Peggy here this fine Monday morning with a faux metal flower card made with my eBrush , embossing folders and my Cut n Boss machine. 

Today's supplies used are:
Cardstock
Aluminum Tape
Lace
Markers
Mica Flakes
Crystal Lacquer
Double sided tape
Water Colors

First I started with some heavy cardstock and aluminum tape from the hardware store.  I covered my cardstock with aluminum tape and ran it through my die cutting machine to get the flower cut. Then I ran my flowers through my Cut N Boss with a Teresa Collins Design Grids embossing folder. Next it was time to color my petals with my eBrush. I sprayed each layer of flowers with blue alcohol markers.  I found this piece of growth on a tree outside and decided to incorporate it into my card so I also sprayed it with blue markers.  I hand cut some leaves for my flower and ran these through the Cut N Boss with a Twill Herringbone embossing folder.  I glued all pieces together with crystal lacquer and glued a piece of lace behind it. 



 I ran my 4 1/2 x 5 cardbase through the Cut N Boss with a Love Triangles embossing folder. I wanted to have a focal image and I had a leftover stencil from cutting a TC Studio Gold Butterfly Die
 that I used to eBrush with the same color marker that I used for the flower so  they would all match perfectly. 
To finish off my card I spattered blue water colors on the card base and glued some mica flakes sporadically. 
I hope you enjoyed today's card! 
I encourage you to try our eBrush and accessories.. 
Have a great week!




Warmly,

Easter Tags with Susan K Weckesser Products

Hello and welcome to my last post for the Susan K Weckesser Design Team term 2015/2016. 
This team has been a pleasure to be on and the other design team members a joy to have worked along side of.
Today I would like to share my bunny tags I will be using with my easter surprises for my six year old daughter.

I used the bunny hugs stamps from Susan K Weckesser stamp line and I colored them with Prismacolor colored pencils and then I blended the colors with a bit of vegetable oil and a paint brush. This method took a lot of the pencil strokes out of my images leaving a smooth blended color. 
I love the result.    
Paper piecing and fussy cutting is very therapeutic for me. 
I did not color the mushroom or what looks like a popsicle but reminds me of a plant
we have here on the West Coast (horsetail). 

Instead I cut paper from the paper line and glued them onto them. I also used the paper line to create a banner for my tags. 
I really enjoyed creating these tags for my daughter whom I know will love them. I am planning on putting these tags on baskets of goodies. 



Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my Easter tags. 
Warmly,

Note To Self

Hello! Happy Wednesday Crafters! Peggy here to show you my "Note To Self" card that I will be giving to a special friend who is battling pancreatic cancer right now. I thought a little note to sit on her desk is exactly what she could use right now and of course that will be sent with some nice chocolate yummies.. 
I started with a card base of heavy cardstock. 
Next I sprayed my background with orange, blue and pink. 
Then I added some dimension with stenciling using paints. 
I stamped my images in stazon ink and I painted the images and fussy cut them out. 
I recycled some acetate from packaging and stamped my "Strong" on the top of the acetate everything else is underneath. 
I glued the rest of the stamped images I had cut with liquid glue. 
The images I used today are: 

 I hope you enjoyed today's card!

Thank You Card with my eBrush

Happy Monday! Peggy here to show you my eBrushed Thank You Card!
Today's supplies include our sponsor this month Teresa Collins products. 

I started with a white cardstock base to which I added a piece of yellow cardstock that I ran through my Cut N Boss with Teresa Collins Honeycomb Project Dies.  I also used the same die to cut a piece of acetate that I added to the left side of my card base. 
My butterflies are created with another Teresa Collins Project Die called Today. 
I was looking to make some texture on the butterflies, so I decided to cut out the butterflies out of paper doilies. I cut each butterfly out three times. 
1- doily
1-paper
1- vellum
Each of the butterflies was eBrushed with my Craftwell USA eBrush and my yellow markers.
I concentrated mostly in the middle of the butterfly with my eBrush. The closer I used my brush the darker the color of yellow I achieved.  I raised my eBrush about 5-7 inches off my butterfly and the color was lighter and not as intense. 
I then eBrushed my honeycomb paper and concentrated on the edges and openings to create a shadow. Then I was ready to assemble. 
Each butterfly was glued in the center and stuck together in the order they were cut. I used liquid glue for the butterflies and double sided tape for the rest.  


I hope you enjoyed today's card!
I encourage you to check out the Craftwell USA website!
They have some fantastic new products! Check it out! Here
Have a great week!
Warmly,

You're My Friend Card

Hello! Welcome Peggy here to show you my friendship card made exclusively with Susan K Weckesser paper line. I chose my background paper and cut it to the size of my cardbase. 
I used punches to make a lattice fence, butterfly and decorations for the house. I only needed two sheets of Susan's paper line as this fabulous paper is double sided.  I also accented with crystal lacquer and stickles.  I cut clouds and used a punch for the flower used as a sun.
