Be You: Sublimation Tumbler & Coaster

Hello all,

I am testing out the prototype of my new Sublimation Stamped Words set and created this fun Tumbler and Coaster. The Sublimation Word set (that I hope to have in production soon) is a set of my favorite phrases and words from the Be You and Winter stamp lines. I loved that I was able to stamp these faves’ directly onto my sublimation project without having to do any fancy dancing to get the image reversed. Awesome!

If you would like to create this project you can still use the Dragonfly and words from the Be You set, you will just need to use your typical method of reversing the word images for the sublimation transfer.

There has been a change in where you can fine my “Be You” stamp line that is being produced and distributed by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. It is no longer directly available from the Emerald Creek website and will soon be sold by specific retailers. So, keep post for more information.

For step by steps, please check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below.

Shabby Chic framed Dragonfly – Inspired by…

This project idea was inspired by a Youtube video by Caroline, “My Home of the Hillside”. In her video, Caroline created 3 Shabby Chic projects featuring Rosette Roses hand-made from strips of scrap fabric. Well, I just had to try making these beautiful trash to treasure roses! And with that, came my Shabby Chic framed Dragonfly project. This creation features an upcycled old frame and other reuse and repurposed materials.

Be sure to watch Caroline’s video on how to make these Rosette Roses as well as my Quick Tips Mixed Media video below for the step by steps on my project.

Dew Drop Shamrock

Hello all,

Back again with another project using Dew Drops by The Robin’s Nest Creative. For this project, I am adding on to my last blog (Heart Ornament with Easel, featuring Dew Drops) by creating another Dew Drop Ornament. In that project I created an easel to hang seasonal ornaments from. So, being that it is nearly St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would create a little Shamrock of Dew Drops to hang on my easel (check instagram for photo on the Easel mentioned above).

Be sure to scope out the Mixed Media Quick Tips Video below for the step by steps.

Be You: Art Journal Cover

Hello all,

Back again with a new Sublimation Ink project. I have had a Prima Marketing Inc. Mixed Media Journal cover left over from another project (that I completed quite some time ago) and I thought I would see how this product took to sublimation. Unfortunately, it does not look like Prima Marketing still carries these covers. However, I found something similar on Amazon: Prima Marketing Resist Canvas Mixed Media Album Covers. I’m sad that these covers are no longer available because they worked great as a substrate for sublimation ink.

This project also features my “Be You” stamp line that is being produced and distributed by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.

For step by steps, please check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below.

After holiday creating

Hello all,

I love the holiday season and all of the crafty projects that I like to immerse myself in. I start in October and run crazy through December 25th. After that, though, I am ready to move on. The jingle bells and glitter are put away for another year and I break out my mixed media stash.

As a warm up to bigger and better mixed media projects, I created this 6″x8″ mixed media art piece on a flat panel canvas. I didn’t really have a solid direction, was just enjoying the whole process. Hence, the title for the piece below is “No Direction”.

A little collage, a little assemblage, a little steampunk and lots of paint. Yes, it is a familiar and happy place! Now I need to start thinking about what I am going to create for the Utah Arts Festival, Unmasked event!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! Now lets move our craftsy selves onto the next project!

Happy day!
