Happy Easter to you! It’s nice to be creating and blogging again after a very busy start to the month. We have a new April “Feathers” Challenge up at the Creative Studio for Canvas Corp Brands:
The How To:
Use Feathers as your inspiration when you create. You can also incorporate items or colors from the moodboard. Create, decorate, sew, knit or paint – release your imagination and be creative!
This month we have a different prize – we will invite the winner of the challenge to be our Guest Designer in June. This means that you will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with!
To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool HERE. You have until the end of May 5 to submit your project! All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered.
Here’s my April “Feathers” project:
“Imagine” ATC Hanging Wall Art
Canvas Corp Brands Materials:
Navy High Impact Paint
Chalkboard Mists: Grape Ape, Black Orchid, Splash, Chalk
Glimmer Mists: Sapphire, Night B4 Christmas, Dragonfly, Periwinkle Bouquet, Abominable Snowman, Pearl, Crushed Shells, Gold
Denim Fabric Sheet
Teal Burlap Flower
Dark Blue Burlap Sheet
Natural Hank Cord Rope
Cream Hank Braided Rope
Chocolate & Ivory Feathers Reverse 12×12 Paper
7 Gypsies: Lace Trimmings
I was inspired by the whole mood board…the gorgeous deep shades of blue and purple, the feathers, and the dream catcher.
I thought what a great idea it would be to transform an ATC into a hanging wall art inspired by the concept of dream catchers.
I’ve also used a couple of gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil for this project:
Scrapmatts Chipboards: ATC10-008 Rounded Corners 01, CB1028 Butterflies 18, CB1238 Scrap Words 24
Scrapmatts Stencil: ST5033 Stencil Triangles
I really wanted to add layers and layers of color and texture throughout this hanging ATC wall art. If you look closely you’ll see crackle here and there, dimensional butterflies against the stenciled triangles immersed in Tattered Angels paints. I really love every single nook and cranny of this project.
I hope I’ve inspired you to join our awesome April “Feathers” Challenge. Simply link up your entry HERE. There’s an amazing prize pack and guest design spot up for grabs. We can’t wait to see all your beautiful creations. You’ve got 20 days to enter so get creating.
Enjoy your Easter weekend!
