Tickle Tickle – A Layout

Hey everyone,

I’ve got a page to share with you today. It’s about a little someone I love, doing something I love to see her doing…laughing!

I created the background with TCW495 Sea Bubbles and some heavy gesso and regular gesso.

Next I used Glimmer Mist to color the background.

Then I mixed some molding paste with white paint and used it over TCW475 Diamond Lattice.

Wall decor and stencils

Hi there! Today I´d like to share with you a 6×6 inch canvas in pastellic colors. I find that this particular piece would make for a nice Valentine´s or Mother´s Day present.

I used the “Indian Leaves” 12×12 inch stencil on the background as well as on the pink flowers.

First I treated the canvas with white gesso and when it was dry, I added some light texture paste thru the stencil onto the background. When the paste had dried up, I sprayed some Glimmer Mist colors (pink, purple, blue and green) onto the background and let the colors dry properly. When the background was all dry, splodged some darker pink color spray here and there for additional interest.

Sanna LippertWhile the spray colors were drying, I took a piece of watercolor paper and inked the pattern thru the stencil onto the paper and cut circles in various sizes. I then inked the edges of the flowers with the ink blending tool and scrunched each circle up a bit. Then I layered them to create flowers and added a brad in the middle.

After that I just needed to glue the flowers down onto the canvas, add some stenciled, fussy cut leaves (created with the Mini Abstract Leaves stencil), rhinestones and a stamped, fussy cut sentiment onto the canvas. Sanna Lippert

Here is close-up on the finished piece. I like the happy and cheerfull end result. Can you tell, how much I am already looking forward to spring? :)

Have a lovely, creative day!

Mixed Media Beach inspired board

Hi Everyone,

Beck BT back again with another share.  I was away on my holidays and our holiday got unexpectedly extended, well for the boys and I anyway… We have been having so much fun at the beach, that well I seem to now be doing through my ‘Beachy’ artistic phase LOL While we were away the Caravan park helped up out moving our caravan so that we could stay longer (I had no car for a week) so I thought it nice to give them a little something to brighten up their VERY new office as a way of saying thanks.

The stencils I used on this board are these divine beach inspired stencilsTCW495SeaBubbles

TCW496s – Sea Creatures 6 x 6″ stencil

I have even created a short video for you showing you how I applied my stencilling to the background.  I just love layering different patterns and textures.  I teamed up the layering in the background with some carpet tape adding some great varied textures and patterns to the finished piece.

After I had my divine beach inspired base, I then embellished it in the main with products from Kaisercraft’s ‘Sandy Toes’ collection – it was just perfect!

Here is another detail picture so you can see all that lovely stencil texture!

I hope you enjoyed my share today and are inspired by your surroundings as I was when I created this.

Happy Crafting!!

CHA 2015 Another Great Success

IMG_5903

CHA is more than making sales.  Though if we are being honest, that never hurts, huh?  CHA is about making connections and continuing to build not only established relationships but starting to build new ones too.  It was so great to visit with returning store owners excited to see the new releases.  We also met new store owners and introduced them to The Crafter’s Workshop and why our artist-inspired stencils are still the best on the market. This year was an all around success on each of these fronts! With a full fledge Design Team now, we also had great help and fellowship opportunities.

 IMG_5882

Our Design Team Coordinator Cheryl Boglioli and owner, Jaime Echt, started Day 1 in the booth excited to share our new releases with demos and a gorgeous display showcasing work by our Signature Designers as well as members of our Design Team. And some of our designers got to meet for the first time.

Sanna Lippert came all the way from Austria to attend CHA and it was our first time meeting in person.

This is just a preview of photo shots.  You can actually watch some videos shared by Scrapbook.com here below:

 

IMG_5969 Our team got to spend some down time before end of show enjoying a really great dinner and lots of laughs and brainstorming for future events you’ll be hearing about soon.

And you can tell we are all looking a little tired.  End of a long day and we’ve been here 4-5 days already.  But we are still going….

IMG_5983

Because even when the show is over, there is still lots of work to do taking down the booth, packing up supplies and preparing for next year already!  We couldn’t have done any of this without each of you though.  Our fans are the best and we appreciate each of you for the comments you leave here and on our social media channels.  Thank you!  Now, to get busy packing and shipping new orders of all the new releases.

A day in paradise – Stencils with Pastels

Hello there, Sanna here today to share a layout that is quite different to my regular style. The reason? I recently added some PanPastels to my stash and they are so fabulously soft in tone and color that I just needed to create a very pastellic, romantic kind of layout.

Here is what I did:

Sanna Lippert

I took a 12×12 inch piece of white cardstock, placed the “Ripples” stencil over it and wiped some PanPastels thru the stencil onto the white cardstock surface. I used purple, yellow, green, blue and orange pastels on the background.

I then went and applied some washi tape around the edgesand layered some patterned paper on the top and bottom of the page. Next I went over these layers using a grey pastel tone and the “Sea Creatures” stencil. After that I took the “Punchinella” 6×6 inch stencil and applied some golden molding paste onto the background here and there. After that I just added little bits and pieces of chipboard and other embellishments here and there to finalize my layout. This is how the finished piece looks like:

Sanna Lippert

for some close-up photos, visit my blog. Now this is a totally different kind of layout that I usually create. It has lots and lots of different layers and is full of details. I really enjoyed creating this page – from time to time one just needs to try out something new :).

How about you – when have you last created something totally outside your comfort zone?

Have fun scrapping,
