Be Awesome Canvas


This BE AWESOME CANVAS was supposed to be for Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® and their blog, but with the death of their CEO and it did NOT make it to their blog (except for a few hours) and has since been removed. So, I’m sharing the finished piece here along with the sneak peek that I originally shared.



This “Be Awesome Canvas” is using some of the new products just released at CHA: Asphalt Texture Paste and the new Stencil 10 Ct. 301 Collection. But, also mixing it up with some of the oldie-but-goodie products, too. I think that you can see the glimmer in the photo from the Glass Bead Glitter Gel, which is just one of my very favorite products ever. (So happy I got a decent shot of this stuff!!)

I’m not sure when the Be Awesome Canvas makes it officially back up on their blog. When it does make it,  I have a full step-by-step tutorial on how I made this piece. It’s much easier than it looks — I promise.

OH!! And I have a UStream coming up for Faber-Castell, too!! Make sure to check it out. Feb. 3rd at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST . Should be fun. :) Their channel is located here:

Happy Veterans Day!

Happy Veterans Day! Today is a day that I salute and thank ALL veterans before me (and after me) who served and sacrificed to protect this beautiful country that I call home. Without you all I doubt we’d still be this great nation.  It’s not always perfect here, but I’d never want to live anywhere else and I am so proud to be an American.

I am on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today with a card that I’m just so proud of. I hope that you’ll like it, too. All of the details for the card are on the blog. Click HERE.


So, to celebrate this very Happy Veterans Day, I want to say to all of the Veterans out there…You are MY hero. Thank you for standing in the face of adversity, for having the courage to hold your hand up and swear to defend our Constitution, for being brave (always), and for being the face of freedom. God bless you all.

Happy Veterans Day to you all.

#texturaltuesdays – thank you card

Hi again! I have a #texturaltuesdays – thank you card over on the CLASSroom blog at Ellen Hutson today.  Two Gelatos® cards today. Ha! I was in the zone. For this card I really was trying to show how to not *just* use Gelatos® to watercolor or create backgrounds, but to mix them with other mediums, like Whipped Spackle. I hope that comes across in my post over there.

Here is the #texturaltuesdays – thank you card that I created. Hope you all like it. I think it turned out pretty cool.


I just can’t get enough of Fall colors.

If you want to learn more about how I made it. ALL of the step-by-step instructions, with photos, are on the CLASSroom blog HERE. And you can search for any of my previous posts by looking up #texturaltuesdays in the search box on their blog.

Thank YOU for spending a portion of your day with me.  Below you’ll find a list of all the products I used on this card. ♥

Tropical Mixed Media Kit

Hey everyone! This is post one of two today…another busy day.  For this post I get to share with you the new Tropical Mixed Media Kit for Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® that is exclusive to Barnes & Noble. I have a card on their blog today that I made using this kit.

It’s a large kit with 23 pieces featuring Gelatos® colors from the Designers Edition – Tropical collection. These colors are bright and cheery and very reminiscent of beachy weather.

Here is the card that I created today from this kit:


This Tropical Mixed Media Kit is a great gift for all of your budding artist friends and family as it also includes a technique guide!

Be sure to stop by the Design Memory Craft® Blog for all of the full details on how I made the card.

Thanks so much and see you soon!

Acorn Card

And hello AGAIN! Here I am with post number two. :) I have my #TexturalTuesdays post up on the CLASSroom blog today featuring my Acorn Card using Gelatos®. I get asked a lot about how to use Gelatos® and I tend to forget how many people don’t know how to use them. Today’s #TexturalTuesdays post today is a good one to show a few simple ways to use them.

This is a close-up of the card with the full reveal and all of the step-by-step info on the CLASSroom blog.


I had the best time making this Acorn Card. There is just so much awesomeness going on. The rich colors, the texture…make me so happy! If you’ve never used Gelatos® before then this is the post for YOU!!

And, as always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all about any of the techniques that I share here or on any of the blogs/Design Teams that I create for.
