Hot Air Balllon with my eBrush by Craftwell USA


Hello! Peggy here to show you my Hot Air Balloon with the help of my eBrush!
Supplies used today are: 
  • eBrush by Craftwell USA
  • Spectrum Noir Markers GB2, FS9, PL5, HB3, PL2,TN1
  • Double Sided Designer Papers
  • Distress Tool
  • Cardboard
  • Double sided tape
  • Crystal Laquer
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Lace
  • Trim
  • Flowers/Wire
  • Gesso
  • Needle and Thread
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Punch
I started with a template that I drew so each piece including the foundation would be the same. 
I made a 3D foundation. One solid piece (whole balloon) and two halves for sides to make it 3D. I folded my template in half to make sure each half was identical as well as being able to fold it when tracing. I used the uncut straight edge of my cardboard to trace one side at a time  to ensure a flat edge to glue down to my one piece of base. (as opposed to cutting one in half) 

I traced my template onto the cardboard foundation and cut. 
I then used my template to cut out each piece of patterned paper and adhered the paper with double sided tape. I used a distress tool on all pieces of paper including the base.  




I cut out 15 balloon shapes out all together. Two for the base and the rest I distressed and folded in half. Since my base gave me four sides, I placed three sets of folded designer card stock in each placing them side by side.
I used white gesso to cover up any of the brown corrugated cardboard I could still see. 
After distressing all papers it was time to take out the eBrush! I used FS9 to give all of the edges a glow.
I used my ruler to measure one inch marks that gave me five holes and I sewed the signature like pages together three at a time. I sprayed just the edges. 
I used Crystal Lacquer and hot glue to adhere the balloons into place. Then it was time to dress it up! 
 I used Crystal Lacquer to adhere the trimmings to the cardboard base. I used vintage lace around the center which helped to keep the pages evenly spaced. Sewing really helped the pages stay evenly in place.
I had some small silk flowers to which I added some paper covered wire and I eBrushed them with Spectrum Noir markers HB3 and PL2. I cut out a couple of butterflies from the paper collection and eBrushed them with GB2.
I created a small box out of 4x4" paper scored at ever inch on all sides.  I attached that to the bottom of the air balloon to which I added some ribbon eBrushed with TN1.  I used a fiskars trim punch with the matching papers for the small box. I brought it all together and I think it turned out smashing! I think this will be given as a gift this weekend.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I encourage you to try out this fantastic tool call the eBrush. It is so versatile with each changing project.
Have a Great Day!
Peggy

eBrushed Coasters

Hello All! Today I would like to show you how simple it is to make designer coasters using Craftwell USA's eBrush. 
Supplies you will need today include:
Blank Coasters
Spectrum Noir Markers
Sticky Notes
Stencil
Modpodge
second project:
same supplies except,  
stencil
acetate 
metal tape for embellishing


I placed my stencil down and secured it to my coaster with post it notes. I lifted of each piece separately and eBrushed them with FS1, DG1 Spectrum Noir Markers. After my pieces where all sprayed I kept the skeleton of the stencil and decided to glue it down to my colored image using Modpodge.
Here is my end result! I will cover the entire coaster with glossy modpodge a few moretimes to adhere the paper stencil.

I hope you enjoyed today's showing of some simple things you can do to personalize things around the house or just give a personal touch to a small gift.

Here are some other coasters made in the same fashion with stencils, a little metal tape and acetate transparencies. My daughter is a cook and I think she will love them on her kitchen wall.



Have a great day!

Easter Fun!


 Happy Monday!!  Peggy here to show you how I made this cute little bunny/chocolate tin for Easter with Polymer Clay and my eBrush.

Supplies used today are:

  • Ebrush by Craftwell USA
  • Spectrum Noir Markers
  • White Polymer Clay
  • Background Stamp
  • Swarovski Crystals
  • Chocolate Goodies
  • Tin Can
  • Designer Paper

I started with my clay and manipulated my clay to a flat surface to make an imprint from my background stamp. I wanted the dress to have texture. I added flowers, straps and buttons from clay.

I began to eBrush my pieces before they went into the oven. I found I got a more even coverage when spraying onto unbaked clay.  After hardening in the oven the colors faded to a nice salmon/pink shade.

I sprayed the dress in the same color Spectrum Noir marker FS8 but held my Ebrush farther away for a lighter coating.  I carefully put the bunny back together and then time for the oven and baked as directed on the package. (15mins)
Next I made three eggs from the clay and stamped with a Ukrainian design all around and eBrushed with same Spectrum Noir marker. I have about three different tones or shades of the same color with just one marker.
I wrapped designer paper around my tin and filled it with yummy chocolate.  I made my own stuffing out of cardstock by cutting it into little strips.  I used Swarovski Crystals for her eyes. 

 I tied a bow around the tin and wrote a note on the tag from the easter bunny of course.

I hope you have enjoyed todays tutorial as much as I had fun playing! My Easter Bunny surprise will surely be loved..

Be sure to check out Craftwell USA and get your eBrush and you could be spraying your way into fun crafts and artsy adventures.
