I hope you are enjoying the Taylored Expressions and Faber-Castell Blog Hop thus far. As a team of designers we came together to share with you some AWESOME, crafty projects. Together, we have left no crafting stone unturned, creating cards, home decor projects and much more. For your creative enjoyment, I designed a home decor project.
I am enjoying the subway art trend and really wanted to give it a try. I loved creating this 12x12 home decor canvas to showcase the wonderful products from both Taylored Expressions and Faber-Castell. I used Taylored Expressions "Welcome Home" stamp set and "Build A House" die set along with several mixed media mediums from Faber-Castell. Using mixed media products was so much fun and easy to use. I applied gel medium to decoupage pages from a used book as the base for my project and then used gelatos to add a pop of color to the base. I had fun stamping cute little houses over the canvas once it was dry. Lastly, I applied the chalkboard paint in random swipes across the canvas and wrote out my quote. Creating the "Smith Family Home" was a great way to use all those random pieces of scrap paper I just couldn't part with and create a wonderful home accent piece in the process.
A few pictures of the process:
