Personalized Child Room Decor on Canvas

Hello! Peggy here to show you how I made this personalized wall piece. 
We are partnering with Latina Crafter this month so I thought I would incorporate their stamps with some clay. 
Today's supplies include: 
Die (optional)
Acrylic Paints
Alcohol Inks
Gold rub and buff
Patterned Paper 
Blue Cardstock
Paint Brush
Tape or Matte Medium
Cutting Blade

I started with my focal image. I flattened a piece of clay to fit the size of my stamp. I pressed my stamp into my clay to make an impression. Next I used a die to press into my clay and cut around it with and x-acto knife for a nice frame around my image. 

 I also cut some squares and rectangles and stamped the sentiments into the clay with the same method as above. I also used a ruler to make impressions and played with the clay to make embellishments. Next it was time to bake. After baking and fully cooling I chose the pallet of paints I was going to use. Teal, Purple and Pink.
 After I painted everything with Acrylic paints it was time to eBrush my background papers with some stencils from Latina Crafter. I used my siphon with blue alcohol inks to create this background. I sprayed two sheets of light blue Cardstock to fit my canvas and glued them down with matte medium
 I placed all my pieces down where I wanted them and proceeded to glue them down to my canvas with E6000 glue. Here is my result. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and check out Latina Crafter Stamps and Stencils!

Have a Great Day!!


Happy Birthday Shadow Box

Hello Peggy here and welcome to my studio where I am creating
birthday wishes with a tag and shadow box made of paper.
Today's supplies include: 
Clear Embossing Powder
Blue Distress Ink

Spectrum Noir Markers
Alcohol Ink 
White Cardstock
Patterned Paper
Double Sided Tape
Recycled Acetate 
Memento Black Ink
Embossing Machine / DieSmall piece of fishing line

I began with my focal image by stamping with blue distress ink and embossing the image. I find it easier to color inside the lines with alcohol markers. I colored my image with CT1, CT4 , BT1, BT4, BT9 Spectrum Noir Markers. For the piece of wood they are balancing on in the ocean I colored with TN7, TN8 and GB10.

Next I started my background with my Ebrush and the BRAND NEW Siphon Adapter!.
Listed here are some things you can spray and their dilution ratio's.
I made some alcohol sprays by using a Copic Colorless Blender which is 70% alcohol mixed with alcohol inks to make it go farther.  I sprayed my cloud stencil from Latina Crafter with my custom alcohol inks in my siphon cup to make my cloud background on a standard 4 3/4 x 2 3/8 shipping tag. 
 Above you can see the bones of the shadow box. I started with a 5" x 6 1/2" card base that I cut in half. I used one half for the frame and the other for the back of the shadow box.  With another piece of white card stock I made 4- 2" strips scored at a 1/2" on the sides and folded with 1" left in the middle.  With double sided tape I put the sides on the shadow box base and taped the frame on top. Next my embellishments were created by hand and by stamping a grass stamp by Latina Crafter and I used them as waves.
I shaded my hand cut clouds (white card stock) and hand cut waves (patterned paper) with my eBrush and Siphon Adapter. I used a recycled piece of packaging made of acetate to hold the clouds in seemingly in mid air by taping it to the side of the shadow box.
 I stamped a sentiment with Memento Black Ink on white card stock and ran the sentiment through my embossing machine to cut it out with a small die. I then used my eBrush with an alcohol solution and eBrush Siphon Adapter to spray making it compliment my background. I placed three brads under the sentiment just to make it stand out more and to tie in the white of the Owls and background.
 My tag with the cutest Owls from Latina Crafter is hung from the top of the shadow box with fishing line so the tag swings from side to side as if the ocean is a little rough. I hand cut the waves and used a second cut wave to place behind the first to make the wave more defined.
 Here it is from the sides. I could see making this a little smaller in the middle and closing up the sides and top for a hidden place for candy.. hmmm...
I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial and I hope you check out some of my links above. The possibilities are endless for this adapter. I can't wait to get into the kitchen!.
