Resin Art Canvas

Hi, everyone. Carol Theng, here today sharing a mixed media canvas. Recently I attended a resin pour art class. And have alot of resin pour scraps. So I made a mixed media canvas with some of the scraps.

"A True Love Story Never Ends"

I cover partly of canvas with tissue paper, painted the edges with black acrylic paint. Adhered down the resin pour scraps with heavy gel medium and sprinkled some gold ink all over.

Added the painted chipboard title and stars and Prima flowers.

The  resin pour scraps are so pretty in itself.

Hope you enjoy my project sharing. Do join us in our November moodboard challenge. Have fun.

Congratulations Boho card with Candy

Hello everyone I am back from a short time away
and my mojo is in full swing

Today I have created a 6x6 inch card using a cute little 3d girly cut out.

Firstly cut a piece  of the kraft cardstock at 6 x 12 inches
and fold in half.
Cut a piece of pattern paper at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches
and tape to your card base.
I found a scrap piece of lace and glued it to the bottom of my base 
along with a strip of organza flowers.
The picture I have used is a 3D one you can use any thing.
I double matted this using white glitter paper
then kraft cardstock and using foam tape, tape to the left side of your card.
In my stash I had a large dream catcher, I glued this to a flat lace flower.
Then a small lacey flower on top of that, next the small dream catcher.
I placed a resin flower in the centre of this.
Glue well onto the right side of the card and add the 
Congratulations along the top of the flower strip.
I went around the edge of the large dream catcher with the pink liquid pearls.

Products used 

Kraft cardstock, Pattern paper, White glitter paper
3d girl picture, Strip of white lace, strip of organza flowers
White lace flower, large and small dream catchers
Ballerina liquid pearls, foam and double sised tape
Good strong glue

"Loving Life" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

Hi Crafters

Louise on the blog today.
Here to share my inspiration for the November moodboard.

 "Loving Life"

This month we'd like to inspire you with this "Boho" themed moodboard.

Straight up ... this was really hard for me!
I'm definitely not a fan of the boho trend and I'm more a brights/bold kind of person.

So I did a little googling of "boho" and discovered arrows, florals and feathers.
Next I looked for a photo and decided this would be a good opportunity to scrap a picture of myself.

Finally I've gotten into my stash and put together this page.
You can see it here in this video ...

Thanks for watching and can't wait to see your creations.

Happy Scrapping.

Scrapping about a recycled theme

Hi once again... good to be back and sharing some tips with you.

My layout is inspired by our "reuse" theme from our moodboard. You might ask where I reused anything on my page... well here's the low down for you:
1. The photos are of my son's art project in which he had to make an outfit from recycle stuff.
 - We made the waistcoat from a pair of pants
 - used old buttons and linked them with paperclips
 - made a paper bowtie
 - the fobwatch was a bedside clock that didn't work which he altered
 - his hat used to be a milk box and we covered it with foam and bling
2. The chipboard elements on my layout are all from my stash...leftovers from another kit.
3. My title is made from old rub-ons that I've had for years.... I even had to use a "3" for my "e" in the word Very.
4. The two black thread pieces were originally from gift bags if I remember... anyway they were off something else and fitted perfectly with this theme of reusing stash.

So though I only have a few items that are truly "recycled" on my page, the whole layout fits with the theme. Let the moodboard inspire you in whichever direction you need to go. Remember to share your work with us on the sidebar link every month.

Till next time...

Friendship and a Butterfly Tutorial

Hey there Off The Rail Fans!
Lisa here today to share a layout and a fun layered butterfly tutorial with you.
I used Shimelle Little By Little collection for this layout:

I fussy cut the flowers from one of the papers. See that cute butterfly? See my tutorial on how to make these later in my post:

I fussy cut a few more flowers, the title "Friendship" and those cute animals from papers in the collection:

Here is another one of the butterflies I created:

Did you notice the words above the photo? I used this tag from a scrub top  and placed half of it under my photo. I covered the words " Tooniforms and Cherokee" with fussy cut flowers. This is a great way to recycle!

Now for my tutorial on how to make the layered butterflies:
I used 2 different butterfly punches and punched butterflies from 4 different papers in the the collection. 

Layer 4 butterflies, all different patterns on top of each other. I stitched through the body part of the butterfly using my sewing machine and white thread, leaving the tails of thread:

Fluff up the wings. Easy peasy! 
These make fun homemade embellies and they are really fast to make!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
