This is such a bittersweet post for me. On one hand, it is the biggest piece of artwork I’ve ever done and I love how it turned out; but on the other hand, it is my last post as one of The Crafter’s Workshop design team members for 2017-2018. I have included several pictures below. I hope you enjoy it.
For this design post, I used four of the gorgeous new Winter 2018 stencils and two of the luscious new modeling pastes. And yes, it’s ok to layer a modeling paste on top of another one after it’s dry. Let’s go!
It’s amazing how versatile the stencil TCW752 Graffiti Kisses is! Not only does it have hearts, x’s, filled circles, and other little cut-outs, but the four sides of the stencil itself are cut to look like torn paper. This stencil can be used as a background or showcased as the focal point. And if you have the large and small size, well, you’ve got double the options! Hi, art friends, it’s Patty from arteverydaystudio and I’m back to share three cards I made using this stencil and they are all completely different. And with Valentine’s Day closing in on us, these cards will surely be a hit with your valentines!
Well, it’s almost time for the big guy and his famous sleigh packed with toys to make their annual trip around the world. This post is dedicated to those nine hard-working bucks that help him get the job done!
Christmas is right around the corner, and you need a lil’ gift for a friend that won’t break your bank, but will impress your friend, right? I’ve gotcha covered art friends! These holiday coasters are just the thing. Keep reading.
I know, I know, it’s only November 1st, but it’s not too early to be thinking about Christmas. Today I’ve got an easy way to give a fun tag with each wrapped gift. For this project, I used both the large and small Ornaments stencil and the large Christmas Tree stencil to make gift tags that I shrank! Let’s get started.
Hi, art friends! Halloween is almost here and I’m back with another 2 page spread in my mini art journal celebrating the holiday. Once again I’ve been playing with some of the products from our art partners and I’m sure you’ll want to try them too! I’ve used another great image from Altered Pages, adhered everything with one of my new favs – Artist-tac, and I’ve made my own art tape!
Wouldn’t it be cool to create your own art tape to add to your art play? You can! All you need are some TCW stencils and acrylic paint, and some blank art tape from one of our partners, Thermoweb. Welcome, art friends, to a short but sweet tutorial on creating your own art tape.
Note: I am a Design Team member for The Crafter’s Workshop; however, even though I use and love their products, all opinions are solely my own.
Welcome back to the second of my series on artful desk organization. Hi, art friends, it’s Patty here with 2 more super cool desk accessories that match perfectly with the Flower Power cork board from last time. This week, we’ll add a paperweight and a plant holder to your desk to complete your desk organization and make it one stylish place to work.
Summer’s over and school has started. It’s time to get organized, and what better place to start than with your desk area. This month, I have a few arty ideas to help you not only get organized, but look good in the process! Hello art friends, it’s Patty with the first easy and stylish addition for this month that everyone will swoon over.
Do you need a place to stick notes, but think a plain cork board is too boring? Well I have the answer for you! I found this flower cork board on clearance in my local Home Goods for $7.
Hi, it’s Patty and I’m here today with a canvas mixed media piece designed for a special new person and his parents. Since I’m such a tactile artist, I love to add texture wherever I can to a piece of artwork. Today, I’ve combined modeling paste, joint tape, and the wonderful Wanderlust stencil to create a piece of artwork that will hang in the bedroom of a newborn baby boy. Enjoy!
You could probably say I’m obsessed with stencils. After all, I have over 100. Too many? I think not. So when The Crafter’s Workshop posted on Instagram some holiday stencils that could be used for making Christmas gifts, my wheels started turning. But the problem was that even though I have over 100, only 4 are Christmas related; so the challenge was to use my non-holiday stencils to decorate Christmas gifts. I decided on 4 “themes”, chose some of my TCW stencils for each theme and a paint palette of 3 colors and went to work. The four themes are Jingle Bells, Peace on Earth, Snowy Sunset, and Office Party.
