Memory Maze tutorial

Hi Everyone Candy here again. Today I thought I would do something different for you all. I have created two cards and a tag. The first is Busy Bee I started with a 4 1/2 x 8 inch card.  It has to be this wide to accommodate the chipboard piece I have used. Then I cut a Matt out of green paper at 4 3/8 x 7 7/8 inches  and went round the edge with the edge distresser. Tape this onto the front of your card and then I tore a piece of gauze and glued that on top as well. Using the bumble bee chipboard piece paint with white paint or gesso, then light green paint, paint your bees black then using a fine paint brush paint in the body parts. When this was dry I added a coat of dimensional magic to make it pop. Glue this to the top of your card and I then added some small flowers and punched out some small leaves and added them as well. Card 2 - Eiffel Tower I have used a 4 x 8 inch card again for this one.  Double matt this one with the bottom layer measu

Mixed Media Altered Frame - Off the Rails DT

Hello Candy here again. I thought I would do an Off the page project for you all today. I bought this frame a while ago and had it in my stash. Firstly I painted the frame with black gesso and when it is dry cover with some Golden fiber paste on the sides and front of the frame, and the heart. I have used some chipboard pieces from one of our sponsors Memory Maze and painted them with white gesso. I roughly daubed with some liquid pearls, the rougher the better as we want some texture. Dry with a heat gun holding close as you want it to bubble. I then used Lindy's - Blue Hawiian blue, Glimmermist afraid of the dark and sei tumble dry green sprays. I used a small paint brush and daubed here and there. Dry between the colours or you will make mud.  On the heart I sprayed the Lindy's blue hawiian spray and when dry covered with glue and apply some midnight blue glass glitter. I also sprayed the colours around the inside and outside of the frame

Memory Maze Design Team Project- March

Hi everyone these months are quickly rolling around. The year is going to fast. Today I am showing you how to create a 4x12 inch burlap/ hessian canvas and some lovely chipboard from Memory Maze. I firstly painted the canvas with white gesso and when this was dry I used some gold crackle/texture paste from Finnabair along with a mask from Memory Maze. I left this to dry overnight as it crackles better when air dried.  I found some flat lace from my stash and some white flower strip and glued them down along the right hand side. When this is dry I sprayed the canvas with Lindy's sprays Rusty Lantern Lime, Wake me up before you go gold and Time Travel Teal. I dried this with my heat gun and then give the canvas a good coat of white gesso, dry this well. Now you spray one colour at a time, lightest first. Make sure you dry in between each colour. I also used a spray bottle to lighten the colour and let it run down the canvas to give it a washed look. I have used a b
