Gift Set – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hey Hey Everyone!!!

Today I would like to share with you all how I created my own wrapping paper and card for a dear friend of mine.

To begin I started with the wrapping paper, for this I used plain white tissue paper. I mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet and TCW9024 Kale Smoothie Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

I also mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW9022 Grape Jelly Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to create the tones I wanted.

I also used TCW9018 Orange Slice and TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint as my other 2 colours. Next using the rough side of the tissue paper I applied my paints to TCW779 Wild Roses 12×12 stencil using a make up sponge.

I set it aside to dry, I didn’t use a heat tool as I didn’t want to burn the tissue paper and this is how it turned out.

Now for the card, I used TCW779 Wild Roses 6×6 stencil for my card and used washi tape to keep the stencil in place.

The tool I have used is from Kmart here in Australia and it is a make up sponge and brush. I found this was great as it has a tip on it. I used Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough as they were the closest colours I had to match the wrapping paper.

Then I added TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint to finish off the background.

I then stamped my sentiment using my Stamp Platform and a Heidi Swapp stamp set onto some white cardstock.

To finish off the card, I inked around the edges using Distress Ink Victorian Velvet and my blending tool. Then used foam dots to adhere my sentiment.

Thanks for dropping in and I hope I have inspired you to create your own wrapping paper for that special friend.

Be Unique – Art Journal Page for The Crafter’s Workshop

Hey Everyone!! Today I am up on the TCW blog with an art journal I created using TCW Heavy Body Acrylic Paints and some pretty amazing stencils.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

For this project I used the new Dina Wakely Large Art Journal and I started by mixing TCW9017 Lemon Custrard and TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Acrylic Paints together to get a green tone. I used a paint brush to apply the paint and with the left over paint I used my fingers to rub onto the page.

Next I mixed TCW9017 Lemon Custrard and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and sponged it through TCW237 Tile Texture stencil.

After drying the paint with my heat tool, I then used TCW763 Alphabetica with a mixture of TCW9023 Blue Jellybean and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

Then using the left over paint, I used my fingers to rub into the paper.

Now for the next layer – I mixed some TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to create a light pink tone and used my finger to apply through TCW792 Micro Dots stencil. And again with the left over paint, I rubbed onto the page.

Next I used the TCW755 Modern Lace stencil and using the stencil in sections I applied TCW9018 Orange Slice.

Now for the last layer, I used the same stencil but applied TCW9017 Lemon Custrard Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

Once I was happy with the background, I then drew my face and used some paints to create a skin tone. I did use TCW9015 LicoriceTCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Acrylic Paints for her hair and eyes. I also used TCW9019 Candy Apple Red Heavy Body Acrylic Paint for her lips.

To finish off my page I used some stamps by Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp for the tile and my Uni Posca black paint pen for doodling around the edges.
