How-to video: Hello crafty friend

Hi! I am back home and sharing a new card and a how-to video. I had fun playing around with my dylusions sprays. You can create awesome backgrounds super fast and here is a card every crafty friend of yours would appreciate!!! IMG_2980

If you look closely, those white dots are made using embossing paste which is a great way to add dimension to your projects

I used sticky-back canvas and that easel came to life. I also love the ghost effect made using water on the background. Here is another closer look

    Okay. I give up. I will purchase those sprays. I had decided
    That I didn’t need to add them to my supplies. But this cars has convinced me. It’s lovely and fun.

    Vicky, I SO enjoy – and look forward to – your videos – especially now that you’re getting into the art journal-y type of crafting. I’ve just begun using Dylusions inks myself and am loving it. It feels good to get messy!

    Please keep the vids coming. They’re awesome!

  17. Vicky, first of all this is really pretty and I love the canvas part!!! How long does it take to dry the embossing paste and/or can you use a heat tool to speed it up? Also, do you notice any difference in the Copic Ciao vs. Sketch markers? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Beautiful!! Love how creative you are. When I don’t have time to craft myself I totally get my fix watching your videos 🙂

    I am so impressed every time with the amount of products you have. You should do a craft room tour for a post.
