As part of the Crafty Crusader Design team I will be focusing on products from Canson Australia, and presenting different projects to you. I hope it will be as enjoyable for you as I know it will be for me. Using the Pebeo Vitrea 160 glass paints and markers was a totally new learning curve for me, but the more I use them, the more fun I am having. An entire world of possibilities is opening up to me, and its exciting. I can't wait to try all the different projects these paints lend themselves to
This piece was also commissioned. It is an over 1m wide Mixed Media canvas. What is so cute about this is that the parents bought a rose plant for their daughter when she was born. This picture is painted with acrylic from a photo of one of the first roses from this rose bush. So it is Gracie's rose. The canvas has her given name, birth date and specific birth details such as weight, length etc.
Two of my favourite things. Well three, my son included. Here is an interesting way to present one of your favourite pictures in a scrapbook LO. I glued down my photo on cardstock, then using Prisma colour pencils extended the photo. I did make it up as I went, but just tried to match the colours as best I could. It was a lot of fun. In fact I want to try this again one day but try being a bit freer with the drawing next time.
