Have you seen my latest project on the Gelli Arts® blog?
I’m customizing a store-bought cotton table runner to fit my Easter decor. Gelli® printing on fabric is so easy and fun!
Check it out here!
It’s my turn on the n*Studio blog today! Which from now on means that I’m going to share last month’s project with you here!
Let’s Go Somewhere…
Somewhere exotic… somewhere where there are palm trees… cocktails… and where the women wear beautiful patterned summer dresses in vivid colours!
The assignment was to use the Batik Art Foamies and batik only means one thing to me: fabric.
I decided to create patterned designs using embossing powder instead of wax in an attempt to make my paper look like batiked fabric. I’m not sure I succeeded, but it was a fun experiment!
Here’s the step-by-step video tutorial. There are a lot of repeat steps, to create a multi-layered look!
Canson Mix Media Imagine (this is paper with only a light grain)
WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad
WOW! Clear Gloss Regular Embossing Powder
Royal Talens Ecoline (201 Light Yellow, 334 Scarlet, 506 Ultramarine Dark, 578 Cyan, 580 Pastel Blue)
Posca marker (PC-1M black)
Please note that some of these materials were given to me, but I will not benefit from sales generated by the links!

And just in case you want to see what I have up my sleeve for the March n*Studio Creative Squad theme… Here’s a link to the new blog post too: Say it like you Mean it – Marsha Valk!
Time flies when you’re having fun! Next month marks my one year anniversary with the n*Studio Creative Squad!
I haven’t shared any of the completed projects I made for the Creative Squad so far, so if you haven’t been visiting my friend Nathalie’s blog, you’re in for a treat!
Looking back on everything I created in the past year, I see some of my absolute favourites among the n*Studio projects. Nat (and her awesome assistant Kim)’s monthly prompts always seem to bring out the best in me.
Nat’s designs are of course also right up my alley, so I truly enjoy working with her stamps and stencils and I think that shows!
But you don’t have to believe my word for it… Take a look for yourself!
