Check Out the New 12x12 Canvas Art Kit!!

This is a new home decor Workshop on the Go kit.  Don't you love it!  It comes with one 12x12 canvas and Dimensional Elements in two different color schemes to create a look that fits your decor.

But I took Melissa Laverty's great idea of creating a second canvas using the same kit (Melissa is a fellow consultant).  I bought another 12x12 canvas at Michael's (with a coupon, of course), and painted random stripes on it using desert sand re-inker mixed with our Create-A-Shade paint.  I used painter's tape to block off the stripes and then painted it with a sponge brush.  I then decorated it using the additional embellishments included in the kit.  I don't plan to hang mine side by side, but if you wanted to, you could coordinate the two canvases.  So for about $5 more, you can get two canvases from the kit!

Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in a workshop to complete the kits.  You can see and read more about the kit on page 23 of the idea book (it's G1062, $39.95).

Here's the canvas included in the kit (click on any of the following pictures to see an enlarge photo):

And here's the second canvas that I painted with our re-inker and Create-A-Shade paint and then used the extra kit embellishments:

And here they are side by side (even though I'm not hanging them side by side):

I LOVE the new 6x6 canvas!!!

Look what you can do with our new 6x6 canvas!!   I just LOVE how they turned out.   I used Modge Podge to adhere everything to the canvas (including the pictures).  These are modeled after the ones in the new 2013 Spring/Summer catalog on page 38.  I needed to use four canvases for photos since I have four grandkids, so I only decorated two of the canvases.  I used Chantilly paper and lots of Cricut cuts from our Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges.  I'm thinking about doing a workshop to create these -- let me know if you are interested (  Since so little paper is used, I think we could work it out to use a color scheme to match your decor.  Converting the pictures to B&W is a nice look, and it makes it easy to go with any decor.   I think it would be in the $35 to $38 range for all supplies.

Catching Up!!

Hi!!  Sorry it has been so long since I've posted anything.  I had to take several months off in 2012 for health reasons so we missed several workshops.  Here are the pages that we did in November using the Pemberley paper line.

And here are the pages we did in January, 2013, using Clementine.
