Hi Canvas Corp Brands fans，Lynne Forsythe here to welcome you back to our month long matchup withThe Crafter’；s Workshop
I LOVE playing with products that are new to me…；.and the Mixed Media line from The Crafter’；s Workshop was just that!!!
First let me tell you a bit about the CCB products I grabbed. ？Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam is not new to me， but seeing how it works with TCW products is and for those who don’；t know.
Glimmer Mist –； A water-based dye paint that can be applied with a spray mister or a paint brush. ？Glimmer Mist got its name because every bottle has a touch of mica in it that gives it the perfect spray or mist.
Glimmer Glam –； An clear， acrylic based paint that is filled with one or a variety of glitter pieces. ？What makes this paint very unique is that the glitter dries in and not on-top. ？It acts like a topcoat， paint or tint.
I began my exploration by pulling out The Crafter’；s Workshop stencil ~ Moroccan Tiles andCanvas Corp Brands ~ Black &； Ivory Postcards.I wanted to see how the various Mixed Mediums would handle…；.Clear Gesso， Black Gesso and Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.I did have a bit of seepage with the Gessos but that is to be expected of me，the ultimate messy bessy.
When the products had dried…；.I spritzed and splattered the paper withvarious Tattered Angels products.I love how the shimmer from the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mistshowed up on the Black Gesso.The Light and Fluffy Modeling past PLAYED WELL with the Glimmer Mist.
…；.and I fell in love with the Clear Gesso.
Since I LOVED how the Clear Gesso worked， I decided I wanted to try it on a piece ofCanvas Corp Brands ~ Canvas Fabric usingThe Crafter’；s Workshop ~ Stencil Swirly Garden.When dry， I again spritzed with Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist and splatteredon a bit of Glimmer Glam.I fell in LOVE the Clear Gesso even more!!
So much so， I stopped all experimentation and let my creativity flow…；..This is what I made with the piece of colored canvas.
I unravelled a bit of of the CCB Canvas Flower ~ Ticking Yellowand used it as a ruffle on my wall hanging.
I adorned the “；downsized”； flower with a circle cut from CCB Burlapand a vintage earring.
I painted a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam on the ？blue CCB Mini Clothespin(to make the colors match)？and attached them to the Hemp Jute Rope ~ Light.
The Glimmer Glam will adhere to any surface， even a finished surface. ？
I finished off my wall hanging with a stamped quote. ？You can also stamp directly onto the canvas with a permanent ink if you want to give that a try.
Now…；.that my creative urge was fullfilled I wentback to the paper I had experimented on.I splattered the paper with TCW Gold Gessoand cut it 5″； x 7″； and distressed the edges…；a card in the making!
I pulled out the rest of the goodies in my DT box andusing a flat brush I randomly painted a bit of TCW Gold Gesso onCCB White Flute and then spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Lox.
I cut a heart from CCB Kraft Cardstock， distressed the edgesand painted on a bit TCW Gold Gesso.
I traced around one of the TCW Clear Gesso stenciled images，with a Sharpie cut into a slightly smaller heart.
Lastly， I pulled out a piece of CCB Spring Showers： Spring Flowers Reverse on Ivoryand painted the flowers with Tattered Angels ~ Sun Sistersand the leaves with Tattered Angels ~ Emerald Green.Do you see the dots of TCW Gold Gesso in the centers of the flowers？
Here are photos of my Mixed Media Card…；.
To use the Glimmer Mist as a watercolor simply shake， pour into a small cup and apply with a brush.
Save everything， even the strings from the flower and add them behind the painted flowers to give a rustic， handmade look.
Adding a sentiment when you are done is a wonderful way to say what you want to say and then you can give your finished goodie to someone with a special message. ？

The Architextures line is not only about the 3D, life-like adhesive embellishments. It is also about beautiful, rustic papers that you can use as a whole or cut into pieces (some of them have banners and vintage signs on them – perfect for use as embellishments!).
‘the improvised life’s former assistant Sarah M alerted us to this easy-to-make gift for the holidays: color block wooden spoons, along with a link to A Cozy Kitchen showing how-to. It could not be easier: buy some wooden spoons?(they’re cheap), use painter’s tape to mask-off a striped design, then paint the spaces left and allow to dry. Then tie ’em together with a ribbon.
There’s nothing more relaxing than a lazy morning with your favorite hot beverage. The recipe for perfection is simple: kick back, breathe deep, and take a sip. If your cup is a little too warm for your fingers you’ll want a coffee cozy to protect them. If you have more than one favorite cup you’ll want a cozy that is adjustable. But why stop there? Let’s add your favorite color, a touch of lace for luxury, and hand stitching for originality. That’s a project that will take forever, you’re a busy person with so much on your mind! May we tempt you with a project that offers all of the above and will take less than an hour to complete? Charity Hotrum has prepared just the thing. Read on!
