  7. […] We are really into atc’s right now and this clever DIY wreath is such a fun way to display them.  Your wreath is constantly changing with each new ATC you receive and you can move them around to make more room.  Choose a color scheme that matches your creative space, kitchen or office and add these mini works of art in a prominent place that will make you smile each time you see them.     One of the first Crew Challenges of the year was an Artist Trading Card swap. I was super excited to take part in the swap, to send off a little piece of myself, and to receive ATCs from artists all over the world. I created this Clothespin ATC Wreath with supplies that I had on hand to hold the cards that I collected during the swap. I chose to work with a mostly neutral palette to let the beauty and colors of the cards really shine. I hung this wreath in my studio and am looking forward to adding to it!   Materials Used:  Canvas Corp Decorative Clothespins – Jacobean or stained clothespins Canvas Corp Small Clothespins – White Canvas Corp Burlap Flower – Orange Canvas Corp Burlap Flower – Teal Canvas Corp Jute Ball – Natural 7 Gypsies Charms – Large Heart Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint – Crystal Petaloo DIY Paintables Burlap Bird’s Nest Flowers – Ivory Wood Wreath Base Tools Used: Paintbrush Hot Glue Gun   Step 1:  Paint the wood wreath base with Crystal Decor & DIY Paint. Let dry. Note: I used a neutral white paint here so that the art work I will add to the finished wreath can really shine. There are 28 fantastic colors of Decor & DIY paint available. Try painting the clothespins a variety of colors for a bolder home accent!  Note:  you can also use a thick piece of cardboard and make your own wreath, trace two round items and then but with an Xacto.       Step 2: Disassemble the clothespins and evenly space them around the wreath base. Note: I didn’t have enough clothespins on hand to cover the entire wood base, so I doubled my supplies by taking the clothespins apart. The ATCs are tucked between the clothespins rather than being clipped in.  If you want to change the color of the clothespins you can paint them with Tattered Angels High Impact or Decor and DIY paints.     Step 3:  Use a hot glue gun to adhere the clothespins to the wreath base.     Step 4:  Use a hot glue gun to attach flowers to the wreath base. Tie a multi-loop bow of jute cord. Tie a Large Heart Charm to the center of the bow. Attach the bow to the wreath. Note: Even after doubling my clothespins by disassembling them, I still didn’t have enough to fully cover the base of the wreath. I chose to add burlap flowers to fill the white space and am pleased with the bright pop of bold color and fun texture. Canvas Corp offers an stunning rainbow of burlap flowers which makes finding your favorite colors easy.     You can slip the cards in-between the clothespin slats or glue them into place.    You can tap a small nail into the wall and hang your wreath or you can add a hanger to the back for a more “professional” approach.  We will probably use a nail, we sure need to get a little more professional – but we just cannot wait to hang it up.   To see more of Dana’s work, visit her blog – They Call Me Tatar Salad and follow her Instagram Account – Dana Tatar.   To learn more about our Design Crew, visit our website – Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew […]

  13. […] For the new school year I wanted to have a new folder for all the lists of my pupils. I received recently a set of the Naturally Aged Paint System Bare Metal – Bronze Patina, and I decided to make a Steampunk Folder! The Paint System is ideal for Steampunk, it really looks like rusted metal, really gorgeous! Materials Used: Tattered Angels Base Board: Card Board Tattered Angels High Impact Paint: Brown, Aqua Tattered Angels High Impact Metallic Paint: Copper Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam: Turquoise Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze: Coconut Shell, Saffron Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kit: Bronze Patina Folder Masking tape White Gesso Texture Crackle Modeling paste Dusty Attic Chipboards: Cogs, metal cogs Glass beads Matte medium Metal flakes Leaf gold Glue LSG Starburst Jack Frost and Teeth Chattering Teal Tools Used: Heating Tool, Hot Glue Gun, Palette Knife, 3 different stencils (DCW), brushes You can follow along with the YouTube video or with the photos and details here.  We would love to know which you prefer, a video tutorial or a blog tutorial. If you like blog tutorials, leave a comment here letting us know. If you prefer video tutorials, leave a comment on our YouTube video stating your preference. This drawing is limited to one entry per person so please leave your comment on the blog post or the video but not both. One lucky winner from our blog and one from our YouTube channel will be chosen from the comments to win a Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kit!!!  The drawing will be held on Friday, October 28, 2016 so get that entry in! Step 1 – I put masking tape to the spine and covered the folder with a thin layer of white gesso. I covered the chipboard pieces with Gesso too.    Step 2 – I added texture with stencils and modeling paste and randomly smeared texture crackle to some areas. Let it air dry completely. After drying I created some droplets that ‘run down’ with my hot glue gun and covered them with white Gesso.   Step 3 – Now I had fun with all the yummy colors. I used several turquoise and blue toned Glimmer Mists, brown tones of Glimmer Mists, Galze, and Glam, as well as Glimmer Glaze in turquoise.  It took some time, because I kept on adding after drying each layer and nearly couldn’t find an end *lol*   Step 4 – In the next step, I added gold leaves I have had at home for ages. I used a stencil, stiffed the liquid fixative milk through it and let it dry. I layered the gold leaves on top, pattted them down and took away the excess with a smooth paint brush. Then I polished it with a smooth cloth.   Step 5 – I ‘rusted’ and aged the chipboard gears with the Naturally Aged Paint System from Tattered Angels. I made a Video Tutorial for you so you can see how it works. You can find it on the CCB YouTube Channel! I glued them all down with Matte Medium. I also used lot of metal cogs and gears, which I also glued down with Matte Medium.   Step 6 – Now I added some interest with glass beads and mica flakes.   Step 7 – I painted the ‘running down’ droplets with brown and metallic copper high impact paint and added paint between the cogs to make them come together.   Step 8 – This is my completed folder So jump on board and take a look around our YouTube channel and see what you think and make sure to watch this amazing tutorial.  Leave us a message here or on YouTube and let us know which one helps you the best to recreate your projects and you will be entered to win a Naturally Aged Paint Kit. Not only will you know how to use it from all the info Evelyn shares, but there are full color step by step instructions that come with the kit.   Check out more of Evelyn’s projects and ideas on her blog and Instagram page.
