Love Wings Mixed Media Canvas featuring Creative Paperclay®

Hi Friends:  It's time for a new mixed media canvas featuring Creative Paperclay®!  I found this great wings mold at Michaels, paired it with a heart mold that I picked up on sale at JoAnns, along with my favorite Creative Paperclay® and a few metal pieces, and I created this Love Wings mini canvas.

Creative Paperclay® Love Wings Canvas


I really love using Creative Paperclay® with molds to create focal pieces on my mixed media canvases.  It's also great for adding texture and stamped images onto the background.

This project uses black gesso and lots of yummy mixed media products!

Cat in Window Canvas Featuring Creative Paperclay®

Hi Friends:  Do you love the image of a kitty in the window?  Here's a video tutorial that uses  Creative Paperclay® to make a cute kitten and window frame canvas.  I used a favorite ceramic kitten with Mold-N-Pour to make the kitten mold.  I used a Prima IOD mould and the Wilton Lace mold for the window frame, and a favorite butterfly mold for the butterflies.  I also used some favorite stencils, paints, and waxes to finish my canvas.  Here are some photos of the project - you can watch the video tutorial, below, for full instructions to create the canvas.


Here are some detail shots of the kitten and butterflies made with Creative Paperclay®

SheepSki Think Pink Card

Hi Friends:  It's time for a new challenge over at the SheepSki Designs Challenges Blog!  The theme for this month is Think Pink.

Here's my project for this month's challenge - I used this gorgeous digital stamp called 50's Chic from SheepSki Designs.  I used Glossy Accents on her belt and shoes to make them look like patent leather - I love the way it looks in person!  And I used the lace and the pleated paper and border punches to mimic the elements of her dress.  This was fun!



I hope that you are inspired by my project - instructions and supplies are listed below.  Come have some fun with a hand-colored image and join us for this month's challenge!  As long as you follow the challenge rules, you are eligible for prizes!  For inspiration, stop by the blog and see all of the great design-team projects for the challenge.  You can also join in the Facebook challenges in the SheepSki Designs Digital Stamps Facebook group.

Creative Paperclay® Jewelry

Hi Friends:  Creative Paperclay® can be used to make great lightweight charms for your home-made jewelry pieces.  Just roll the clay, stamp into it with your favorite stamp sets, then cut with cookie cutters or metal clay cutters to create charms / pendants to use on necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. Once dry, you can paint them to match your favorite outfits or to give as gifts.

Here are some pictures of the jewelry pieces that I made using Creative Paperclay® charms:






The beads on this last one didn't photograph very well - they are lovely iridescent purple/blue beads that really work well with the purple in the charms.
