New Tutorial: Making Backgrounds with Tape - Painted, Stenciled, Inked & Foiled Mixed Media Tape Cards

Have you ever used decorative tape on your projects? I know I have, but it doesn't get better that the new Mixed Media Art Tape... It is a roll of possibilities... It's canvas on tape! Today I have a fun tutorial on how to customize your Mixed Media Tape to create a painted and stenciled background!



Tutorial
The best part of this project is the simplicity of the process. You don't need any additional tools to add your foil, so everyone can try it out! Make sure you click here to learn how to make these cards with the step by step tutorial on Therm O Web's blog. You will also find all the supplies I used listed there too!


I hope you love these cards as much as I do. I've been saving this tutorial for a long while, not on purpose but just because I've had so many tutorial videos being uploaded, I couldn't find the time to share this one. Speaking of which, I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I've been building and creating more content for you and I would love to have you join my creative rollercoaster! (Yep, it's not a journey anymore... It's an adventure! -smile.)

That's all for now! I'll see you real soon with a new creative idea to try out! See you then.

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online.

Pears & Flowers Step Card

She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
