January Craft Challenge Reveal…
Just in case you are new and this is the first you are hearing about this, here’s the scoop. On the Third Monday of every month, Amelia, (she blogs over at You Can Always Start Now) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join our challenge.
January’s theme was canvas (we both chose an artist’s canvas). Be sure to Mark Your Calendar for February as we will be crafting with Puzzle Pieces.
Here are our January projects:
I used a very small artist canvas that I purchased at the Dollar Tree (4 inches x 4 inches). It actually was a paint by number in the children’s craft section.
I painted over the white canvas with some cream color craft paint and then laid out my design before gluing down the sea glass with E6000 glue.
My number one hint for any type of project like this is to TAKE A PICTURE of the pieces once you have decided on the layout. It was much easier and faster to complete the project by referring to the picture for the placement of the sea glass before gluing them on the canvas…just sayin’ 🙂
Amelia used a larger canvas and also added another medium to it. Those beautiful pops of plaid are washi tape. The striking blue color matches the blue on my anchor…lol. You can read all the deets on this project at You Can Always Start Now link here.
We would love to have you join us and it’s not too late to add a link to this month’s challenge, click here for the details.
OR you can email us pics of your projects with permission to post them.
If you decide to join us you will be featured on both our blogs, our FB pages, social media shout outs via Twitter and added to our Pinterest boards. In case you missed it at the beginning of this post make sure to come back on the Third Monday in February to see what we did with our puzzle pieces.
