Rebekah here! I want to share my coffee filter art with you! Check out the steps below to create filter art that can be stand alone or used (as I have done) to collage onto another piece of artwork. Simple, fun, and easy that is how I like to create! I used stencils Love Post 6″ and Coffee Splotch 6″ from my new line with The Crafter’s Workshop. Stay tuned as I will be posting more techniques and projects soon.

Imagine Crafts always has great project inspiration on their blog. We sent their team a few stencils to play with and love the projects they have been sharing. Here is one that you should definitely check out by Isha Gupta.

Everyone knows that I love stencils but another thing you don’t know is that I love graffiti and street art. With stencils you can create your own version of street art. I had a 10″ x 10″ mirror and using the Mini Crossed stencil (TCW451) with acrylic paints I created my own faux graffiti mirror.
I love the way it turned out. I think this is another stencil I will using all the time. So grab your stencils and start creating your own graffiti!
Hello! Tami Sanders here to share a project with you; a necklace made using the 6″ Solid Butterflies template – TCW465s…
The butterfly pieces were made using the Solid Butterflies template filled in with colored pencils on Super Sanded Shrink Film from Grafix. The colors in the designs intensify and brighten when the film is shrunk…
Holes were punched before shrinking, and “junque” chain from a broken necklace, along with jump rings and a clasp, were used to put the necklace together.
Here are a few hints to help make creating this project easier:
use painter’s tape to secure the shrink film down to your work surface, then tape the template to the shrink film.
fill in the larger portions of the designs first, then sharpen your pencils to a very fine point to color in the smaller areas.
once you’ve completed your designs, use the painter’s tape to remove any pencil dust. just dab tape onto your design and pull up. much easier and safer than trying to brush off dust which may lead to stray markings on your design.
Templates from The Crafter’s Workshop come in hundreds of different designs so you are sure to find one that will work for your jewelry project. Keep in mind that the shrink film will reduce by about 50% when selecting your templates.
