Hey there artsy friends Rita Barakat here on day 5 of the Xyron/ Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog collaboration! Both blogs have coordinated this week to bring you fabulous projects and prizes!
Who doesn't love winning a prize? All you have to do is comment to be eligible to win! Today I have brought to you a continuation of Tuesdays post where I shared my Fall canvas, the first girl in this seasons series. Today I am sharing my Winter (who also needs a name!) Again using watercolor paper, a canvas, Xyron adhesives and of course Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products. Let's take a look...
Here are some items I pulled out - sometimes you use it all sometimes you don't - you know how that goes!
I used a snowflake punch and some paper scraps to make some borders. Adhered them with a Xyron Mega Runner. I used a spatula to add layers of Whipped Spackle and Pearl Texture Luxe.
Already I am seeing nice texture, I add some snowflakes while the Whipped Spackle and Texture Luxe are still drying.
I painted and cut out my girl's face; using a Xyron Mega Runner on the back.
The Xyron Sticker maker came in handy for those tiny snowflakes! If you have never used one it's so easy!
Stick them in pull them out..
Peel back the top and lift your new stickers!
So I added all my pieces and it just wouldn't be complete without a little bling so of course I added Glass Bead Glitter Gel! I will be revealing Spring and Summer next week on my blog RitaBarakat.com I would love for you to come visit!
P.S. Did you know that Glass Bead Glitter Gel stays on even slick surfaces? With Christmas around the corner this is a good tip for ornaments, gifts and such! Just sayin'!
