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.

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.

Scenic Route Elephant Tag with Creative Paperclay® and ImPRESSive Putty

Hi Friends:  Did you know that you can make your own Creative Paperclay® molds from favorite objects that you have around the house?  It's really easy with a product called ImPRESSive Re-Usable Putty.  The Creative Paperclay® design team was given the opportunity to try using this reusable putty with our paperclay.  It was great!  I chose to create a mold of a favorite elephant pin that belonged to my mom.  I followed the directions on the package to prepare the putty, then pressed the elephant pin into the clay, let it harden using the package directions, then removed the pin.  I created this great elephant mold that I can use any time I want.  And, if I decide that I want to make a mold of something else, all I have to do is reuse the putty with another charm/item that I choose.

Once your mold is ready, you can use Creative Paperclay® to make a clay embellishment to use on your projects.  Here's a project that uses my elephant mold with other Wilton molds to make this fun tag:


Here are some detail photos of the cast elephant and flowers, along with the sentiments that I used:



Here's the original pin and the mold that I created:



Directions: Please see my video tutorial for full instructions for how I created the mold and the tag.  I do have to confess that, in the middle of filming the tag project, I spilled a large amount of ink on my craft table.  So the final background colors changed a bit during the filming. LOL.  But, I decided to make the best of the happy (?) accident and just go with the change in the colors.



Supply List:
Liquitex Professional Clear Gesso (Amazon)

Finish with some lace tucked behind the rose petals.

Beach Therapy Canvas with Creative Paperclay®

Hi Friends:  Do you love the beach?  Do you like reminders of the great times you've had there? I know I do!  Would you like to create a beautiful canvas to help remind you?  Here's a Beach Therapy mixed media canvas project using seashells made with Creative Paperclay® and some Wilton molds.

Creative Paperclay® Canvas


I love using Creative Paperclay® with molds in my mixed media projects because it is so easy to make clay accents to use on projects.  Just add the clay to the mold, pop it in the freezer for a few minutes to help it set, remove from the mold and let it dry for a day or 2.  Once dry, I can easily add them to my projects, paint them to match my design ideas, and create lovely mixed media canvases, cards, or other altered art items.

I used some yummy Prima paints and waxes, and lots of pearls, beads, and glitter on this project. It was so much fun to create the canvas, and I love how I used the sand paste with my Creative Paperclay® letters to create the effect of letters in the sand.  Here are some detail photos of the canvas:
