Last week I was at the summer Craft and Hobby Create-n-Connect Conference in Las Vegas. Four days of crafty fun! I spent most of my days demoing Tulip Spray Dyes and Dye Pens, but on one day I taught a mixed media collage workshop. The workshop was to promote the new Scribble Crazy Tips – these are really cool puffy pen-like paints that come with different types of nozzles. I even made some video tutorials that tell all about them!
The idea behind the canvas is to create a fun-pop art type of affirmation design that you can hang in your house to make you feel energized and happy. I think the duplicate lines on the Crazy Tips make everything look eletrified.
To make this project, you’ll need:
– One blank canvas
– Assorted magazine photos and phrases
– Gems, feathers, glitter, flowers
– Aleene’s Glue Stick
Directions: Generously rub the canvas with the glue stick in the areas where you want your magaszine cut outs. Press the images in place. Then apply the Crazy Tips designs all around the borders. Last, press the gems, feathers and flowers into the wet Crazy Tips (the formula is so thick, it will act as a glue).
Here are a couple finished pieces from the students in my class. Aren’t they cute?
Here are some other designs I made. It’s addicting!
This is also a fun “girls night” craft because it’s always entertaining to cut photos out of fashion magazines, plus adding the glitter and glue…and cocktails and a movie…ok, who wants to come over and craft tonight? And make use of the perfume samples, right?Love & light,
