Travel canvas with PHP and Plaid

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to show you my new altered canvas made with Paper House Productions and Plaid products as a part of our mutual  blog hop. 
 I wanted to use the most gorgeous molds I got with Travel items, so I made this Travel canvas and I think we all can see how  lovely both company products are

Products used:
Old World paper pad
Paris canvas stickers
Journey 3d stickers
Travel 3d stickers

Bark Brown Acrylic paint FolkArt
Yellow Ochre Acrylic paint FolkArt
Travel mold
Mold melts Milk color
 Mod Podge Satin
Sponge brushes

 Stone path stencil- Sweet Stamps com

Step by step:
1. Paint the canvas with a mix of Bark Brown and Yellow Ochre with roller and foam brushes. Let it dry.  Add texture with the same paints using Stone Path mask and let it dry. If you don't want to wait for a long time you can sprinkle clear embossing powder over the masked path and to heat emboss it , as I did after all.
2. Fill Travel mold with Milk color Mold Melts and let it dry . Trim the edges of all molded shapes. Paint the shapes in the desired colors with FolkArt acrylics.
3.Cut  a map circle from Old Word paper and glue it with Mod Podge over the canvas all over the paper piece. Let it dry.Tear a few more strips from the same Map paper and glue them with Mod Podge over the canvas as shown. Add a few  drops of  brown paint to make some shading around the paper strips.
4.Make the upper title with a word World cut out of the same paper, canvas sticker from Paris set and a cut piece of Journey sticker . Add a subtitle " Trip of lifetime", bubble sticker and suitcases as shown. Cluster the molded pieces as shown.

Celebrate with new Die Versions dies

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is Irit here again with another new card made with a new, just released, cut- out Celebrate die and a new lovely font called  Spaghetti.
 This time I tried to be more artistic and made this kind of a Mixed Media card with Gelli Plate print background and a mixed   sentiment, made with a cut out die and some die cut letters. I made it as
 " Celebrate yourself" one . We often forgot to celebrate ourselves and just celebrate our family and friends. So once a year make it for yourself!
   This time I used just a strip with cut out  sentiment and not the whole piece of paper to cover the background. I glued this strip with 3d foam dots and added this totally funky letters from the new font.

Want to make some similar cards? All new cut out dies and fonts are in Die Versions shop!
Just go and grab some!

Make your own wood tutorial and wall art with PHP

This is my Faux wood tutorial made for those who love wooden pallets on the wall, but can't buy them as they are far away from any craft shops, like I am. So I decided to make my own " wood" and it's quite a success.
Here is my tutorial:
1. Take an old tooth brush and cut every second row with scissors. Add gesso over Kraft cardstock using your new low cost  crafty tool.
2. Add a thick layer of clear embossing powder over the wet gesso and heat emboss it completely.

3. Add strokes of brown Gelato or any other water color brown paint  and wipe it with baby wipe.

4. Add a mix of brown colors with distress ink and copper mists over the first colored layer from step 3. Add as much as you want to make your " wood" darker or lighter. As all colors are not water resist, you can wipe some paint if it's too dark, as I did with my final project.

5. Using the simple metal ruler make black lines with black Gelato or any other black marker you have.
You wooden piece is done. Cut it to strips to make a pallet  as I did for my final project.

And this is my Live- Love- Laugh " wooden"  wall art:
I used a package of Paper House Productions sticker only and it's totally a HIT!
 If you want you can add more  stickers, such as butterflies or birds or flowers. I wanted this project to be mostly clean and simple so we can enjoy both my faux wood and the gorgeous PHP stickers.

Beautiful orchids with Inspired by Stamping

  Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is my new layout made as a piece of " make your own background"  experiment.
I  made a lot of stamped and stencilled background, but this time I added almost a full package of thin clear stamps to add the texture to this page that was made because of the stamp.
How can it be? It can. First I got this Orchid stamp from IBS  Australian Nature 1 set , then I tried to find good photos to fit it and I actually found a lot from our trip to Orchid garden.
So I added 3 photos in line and made the background around with stamping the same stamp 4 times and coloring with distress markers over the patterned paper. Then I added some stickers over the photos and made the finishing touches with corner and title heat embossed chipboards, canvas. 3d and puffy stickers and a few pieces of ribbons I never use... The stamped butterflies from the same stamp set were the last second add- ons and work perfectly with the sticker ones,  colors and  my photos. And then the little stamped bird over the canvas sticker was the must! The sticker says : Sing your song and the bird was " must to add" image here.

Vintage art with Meg's Garden

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Meg's Garden post.
This time I made this standing mini album using the new collection from Meg's Garden called French Garden.

I folded this stand to be my album base and this is how it looks from the side, just to show you how easy this fold is. I used a good chipboard piece 6*12'' long and scored it to 6-3-6 '' to make this fold.

This is a title side here again:

Most of the products are from Meg's Garden shop, but I added this ART sticker from PHP company, some bling and a word Vintage. All piece was inked with Rusty Hinge distress ink from Ranger.
Some embossing with brass, green  and gold were added over the chipboards.

And this is how it looks from the album side:

 The whole mini album has 8 pages and as much as I wanted to add more, it became very bulky and impossible to  close.

And now for the inside pages:

I used French Garden papers and vintage women pieces  and cut outs on each page and added a word that describes this page.
And the next page here:

And more of the pages:

And the  back cover with just a few trims on the bottom:

The whole construction was binded with a spiral and  this is like those calendars we all see around, but hand made one.
Hope you got some inspiration from my vintage album and you sure can do yours with a similar technique.

And here's my project!

Actually I first made another project, pretty big one. But then I found the Kitchen call for some print  craft magazine and mailed this project to them. As it's still under consideration and maybe will be in print,  I just made another project for this hop.
And this time it's a MENU I  made for a kind of non existing coffee shop.

 I used a lot of paper from RRI collection, some die cuts, 3d stickers, tags, droplets  and wooden pieces.  I added a piece of twine from this collection around the cover.
 The wooden pieces were inked and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to get this lovely " like glass" look.

The papers around were embossed with Glitter Teal powder.

The bottom cake die cut was partially embossed with Vintage Candy Cane  glitter.

 Now to your next stop:
Jen Deal

Enjoy the hop!
