Last Challenge of 2015!

It seems like every year, I like to end it with trying to sneak in just one more craft project...just one more challenge. And this year is no different.  I decided to play along with Prima's December PPP Challenge. The products this month reminded me of vintage graphics from the 60's, so I thought I would try a mixed media snowman canvas.

I shaped the snowman using Styrofoam eggs, but then covered them with the Finnabair Snowflake paste.  The canvas was painted with the Prima Heavy Gesso, and colored with the IOD oil pastels and Prima Watercolor pencils.  The stamps are all from a Finnabair set, and I decontructed some Prima flowers for the snowman's arms and the little snowballs.  I used a water distressing technique to for the paper scarf.

Ringing in the New Year with Crafter's Companion

Hi! I've been busy creating lots of samples using my Crafter's Companions goodies for the upcoming CHA show, and have been a little neglectful in sharing the inspiration with you! So, tonight, on the eve of NYE, I have a card to help ring in the New Year. This Scruffy Little Cat stamp is so sparkly in person, thanks to the Sparkle Spectrum Noir pens. I layered them over the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and it's a great match up. 

Be sure to watch next month as I will be sharing all of the projects that are on their way to CHA!
