Technique Tuesday - Foam Paint

Posted by erin reed on November 25, 2014 at 2:00am 0 Comments

How to Make Foam Paint and 3 Uses for it

 

Foam paint is super easy to apply to surfaces as it is light, airy, and spreads well especially for stencils or applying to bumpy surfaces like canvas, and it has some transparency so it does not cover up just add color the surfaces to are adding it to.

 

Foam Paint Recipe

1 part green paint

1 part brown paint

1 part matte Mod Podge

2 parts shaving cream

1/8 part black paint

Stir together until foamy

 

Here is the foam paint after I have mixed it, you can see it has a creamy look and it is super easy to apply with the Plaid foam brushes.

Use 1 - Wood

I first applied the paint to the wooden measurement sticks from our Nov Birds of a Feather Kit.  They were a plain pine wood color, and I did…

More Fun with the Versatile Fall and Family Friendly Rustic November Kit!

Posted by Tricia Gorden on November 22, 2014 at 4:30pm 4 Comments

The November kit is just beautiful and chock full of so many textures and lovelies!  I was easily able to use this kit for SO MUCH!  Today I wanted to share with you a few things I did.  In this first project, I saw a layout on Pinterest that I absolutely ADORED!  I am not sure who created this gem from the PaperCraft magazine HERE so I can give them proper credit.  I tried my hand at roughing up some things for this page which is definitely out of the box for me!  Here is a photo from awhile ago of Hannah and some friends at an American Girl Dinner Theater performance we went to.  I loved the stitched paper with the lacy accents.   The flowers complemented things nicely and added a punch.  I really used up a lot of the stickers for further embellishing as well. In this next project, I layered some of the rich papers found in the kit to make the background for this gem.  The diecut paper background was fabulous and perfect! And finally, I just HAD to make some enhancements to my centerpiece.  The kit had exactly what I needed to pull it all together!  The flower, the time piece, the papers and the stickers!  PERFECT!…

Technique Tuesday: Let's Make a Turkey

Posted by Linda Harper on November 18, 2014 at 5:34am 4 Comments

Good morning, Chickies!

Linda, here, sharing a super easy way to a create fun Thanksgiving card. Plus, it's an AWESOME way to use up those little scraps of paper we all have laying around.

To start, I used one of the Prima watch faces in the November kit for my turkey's body. Then, I drew a feather template.

After cutting out the template, I used it to trace around my feathers. I cut out 16 total and inked them.

Next, I started to layer my feathers.

To finish off my turkey, I cut out a circle for his head, cut out a small triangle for his beak and finished up by using small enamel dots for his eyes.…
