Photo Transfer on Canvas Faber Castell Design Memory Craft®







Today I am shaing a Photo transfer I did on a Canvas using various products from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft®.  I’ve created this in December for Faber Castell Design Memory Craft® and only now I’m sharing this since it needed to be on their blog first, before sharing it with you all 🙂

This was my first time doing a photo transfer onto a canvas and I didn’t do a test run before making this so I’m not even sure if it’s suppose to even look like this, lol

As you can see in the video, I printed the photo on a regular copy paper, laid it down and put gel medium on top of the picture.  Once it was completely dried, I sprayed the entire photo with water and started to peel the paper away, very gently.  I then used various products from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft®’s line to decorate this canvas.  I had a lot of fun doing it and I plan on doing more mixed media this year.  I hope you enjoy this video and if you have tips on getting a better transfer, please leave me a comment so that I can learn from you.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next time 🙂


Dylusions Paints Review


Aloha Guys!

Today I’m playing around with these New Dylusions Paints that I received as a DT Package from Tupelo Designs LLC.  They were generous enough to send me these as a DT package which I am super thankful for.  I have been eyeing these out ever since it was released at CHA.  This paint was demonstrated  at CHA by Dyan Reaveley and according to her, they were super easy to use and Anyone can use these very easily which was right up my alley since I’m not too familiar with working with paints.  As you guys know, I make a lot of cards and I use mostly translucent mediums to color my stamped images so the lines will show through so I don’t use many Opaque or Semi-opaque mediums.  Paints are a little intimidating for me, it’s something I’mnot too familiar with.  Lately though, I’ve been very intrigued with mixed media and Art journals and I have been collecting a lot of things for it but I’ve only done 1 Art journal, lol.  It is kind of scary trying something new, especially on camera.  So I was super excited about these paints since she made it look so easy to use.  The colors are so vibrant and bright so it was super fun playing with them.

First thing I did was to swatch out my colors to see if the colors change after it dries and there was no change in the vibrancy of the color.  I do these product focuses so that you guys can see how a product is hands on.  When a new product launches in the market, I have lots of questions regarding the product.  I personally want to see them used so that I can make a decision whether or not the product is for me.  That is the reason why I do these product focuses.  I did make a video using these paints in many different ways.  Some things worked and some things didn’t, lol.  Even though it may not be a perfect video, I still hope you guys enjoy them.  I have a full supply list below if you think this paint is something you want to invest in.  In my opinion, these paints were very easy to use, just as Dyan said they would be.  The paint jar is really a good size and you definitely get a lot of paint in it.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks so much, Mahalo
