In Craftwell Ebrush Spectrum Noir Wet Wipes

Mixed Media on Wet Wipes?

Hi! Peggy here to show you how I used a wet wipe for my substrate in this fun project.

Supplies used today are:

  • Ebrush by Craftwell
  • Spectrum Noir Markers
  • White Gesso
  • Inks (honestly were just wiped off my craft sheet)
  • Wet Wipe or similar (Dryer Sheet/Paper Towel)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Stencils
  • Printer
  • Painters Tape
  • Copy Paper
  • Image to print
  • Printer


  I started with a dried dirty, inky, wet wipe to which I applied white gesso and let dry before adding any color.

I brought out a few stencils and using a sponge I applied acrylic paint to the numbers on my stencil and onto my wipe.  Next I played with my Ebrush and the stencils. I have a great sunburst stencil that I used in conjunction with my Spectrum Noir Markers in OR1

The last step I did was tape my art down with painters tape to a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and feed it through my laser printer. I chose a flower/butterfly theme for my image as my colors screamed garden. I also used a black and white image for contrast. 


whalla my mini project! I love it! I am planning to adhere this to a canvas in the near future so I can admire my work. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and I encourage you to try out the Ebrush from Craftwell on your next mixed media project!


Warmly,

In Sin CityStamps Steampunk Terri Sproul

Steampunk Airship Nightlight

Hello Peggy here to show you my last posting for Sin City Stamps! Its been a great run with some great folks and Awesome product! I present: My Steampunk Nightlight! It can be hung or attached to the wall.. I love it!
Todays supplies: 
Chipboard Airship
Silver Cardstock
Patterned Paper
Stazon Ink Black
Crystal Lacquer
Chains, keys, gears, switches, bolts anything metal
Creativity!

I created a two inch molding out of chipboard around two pieces of a chipboard airship to create a 3d effect. I covered the outside of the ship with silver reflective cardstock. Below shows the stamps and metal pulled out for easy access and to help with the creative flow. 
I stamped my Sin City Stamps with Black Stazon Ink to create a back ground using four stamps. 
Next I placed my metal pieces in the order I wanted them to appear and began to adhere them with Crystal Lacquer.
This is my result below! I added a battery operated light for a glow and whalla! 



The top and bottom were covered with Graphic 45 patterned paper. I added a hook and chain for hanging. I used patterned paper to also create a floor to hold the light on the inside.
Ball chain was added.

That's it! I am very proud to have been on the Sin City Stamps Design Team for two terms and I wish all the best to Donna and her fabulous Sin City Stamps Creations!
Congratulations to the new team I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Warmly,

In eBrush by Craftwell USA Mixed Media Canvas

Mixed Media Layering Backgrounds

Hello! Peggy here to show you my latest mixed media canvas using acrylic paints and my eBrush!
Today's supplies used are:

Spectrum Noir Markers 
Acrylic Paints
5 Stencils / 6 Masks 
Paint Brush
Golden White Gesso
Canvas (in this case sticky back canvas on chipboard)
Tonic Modular Die (used as stencil)
Golden Molding Paste
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Painters Tape

I prepped my canvas with white gesso and completely dried before starting. Next I added my background color with acrylic paint in a light blue. Then I added some texture with Golden Molding Paste and a hexagon stencil. I got impatient with the drying time on the molding paste so I switched up and used gesso as ink for some masks of a fleur de lis to offset all the blue. 
Next I brought out my eBrush and stenciled to my hearts content with bright yellow and green using my Spectrum Noir Markers. 

To tone this all down I used a watered down gesso mixture and applied using a credit card. You can see my mixture of water and gesso is still transparent enough to see the yellow and blue . I used about six numbers as masks. These particular masks are actually stickers placed in formation and sprayed with my eBrush in BT5 Spectrum Noir markers. I also used the side of the credit card to make lines on the numbers only going vertically and horizontally..
I brought out a die from Tonic Studios, my eBrush and a Spectrum Noir Marker. I taped my edges down with painters tape and around the die to prevent over spray.  I turned on my eBrush machine on the second pressure light and proceeded to cover the entire die.
Next I added some white gesso and water again to tone down the color. I wanted more texture so out came the molding paste again. This time after drying I put the stencil back on the in the same place and eBrushed just the raised portion of the molding paste. I love the effect.!
White gesso was used again on the tips of some of the raised image and also used to drip down the top of the canvas.  Lastly I darkened up the edges with distress inks. 
I just can't stop adding layers.. so fun!


I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and I encourage You to try this technique! Above all have Fun!!

Sin City Stamps Tags

Hello! Peggy Here to show you my tags created with Sin City Stamps background set from Terri Sproul Art Journal 2 set.
Supplies used today are: 
Shipping Tags
White Gesso
Brown Stazon Ink
Black Stazon Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Versa Mark Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Black Embossing Powder
Tim Holtz Distress Tool
Heat Gun
Seam binding optional

 I started with White Gesso on my tags. I wanted to play with resist so after stamping my background with Stazon Ink, I embossed another background stamp on top using Versa Mark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I headed this to set with my heat gun.

I stamped sentiments on my tag from the same set.. it reads.. "Just Love Us + Art". I distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I tore some edges and also distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain . I used a distressing tool from Tim Holtz along the edges. I had a very sturdy tag so I creased it up a little to look worn. 
Here is another White Gesso Tag with a brick background and sentiment from Terri Sproul's Set Art Journal 2. I added some stitch marks with black Sharpie fine tip. I distressed this tag with Tim Holtz Distress Ink black soot. I used Black Embossing powder on the sentiment.
Here are my final two tags! I added some custom died seam binding to match.

I hope you enjoyed my quick tags and I encourage you to come on over to Sin City Stamps and take a look at their great selection of stamps and stencils.
