New ideas and new techniques are so much fun to try on our papercrafting projects! Of course trends may vary depending on where you live in the world. We asked three of our scrapbooking experts to show us what is trending in their craft circles. Are you as excited as we are to see what they are? We'd love to hear what is trending where YOU are! You can leave us a comment right here, or post on our social media! Ready? Off we go...spotting the trends!
Vintage and reminiscent of days gone by, our Julie Nutting Doll Stamps have swept many of us back to the days when we spent hours cutting out paper dolls with our mothers!
Today we are going to take the doll stamps and combine them with another craze going on: Mixed Media! Combining the two is a natural step for those who want to add sparkle and texture to their dolls. Not sure how to do it? That's okay, because we have a FABULOUS tutorial for you today by Prima paper doll expert, Delaina Burns!
Delaina's gorgeous girl, Keira, is dolled up with Cigar Box Secrets papers, then adorned with a few of our new flowers! But the magical touches are created with Color Bloom sprays, Soft Matte Gel, and Glass Glitter! Here's how you can recreate this look!
You'll be spinning in circles when you experience just how FUN, and economical, our new Pinwheel Stencils are! With seven different stencil shapes and sizes there is sure to be one that captures your heart. Each Pinwheel offers multiple choices of patterns and textures! Talk about a bargain. Plus it saves space by combining so many different patterns on just one stencil.
So how do you use them? Oh, let us count the ways! Each time you spin the stencil top you open up a new design that can be inked, sprayed, colored, gessoed, glittered, etc! Everything else stays protected from the art mediums except the open area. So it's as easy as 1, 2, 3! Choose a stencil. Spin. And apply an art medium! Let's take a peek at a few ideas from our teams.
Sharon shows a wonderful way to pair our new Petal Stencil with Bethany Petals! (They're really a match made in heaven!) In three simple steps she creates a beautifully colored, and textured, flower...and that's with just ONE of the six designs included on the stencil. Is your mind spinning with ideas yet?
Chalkboard finishes are all the rage right now with DIY weddings, home decor, and so many other cool ideas! Earlier we had posted a few fun ideas for using our twelve NEW Chalkboard Paints. Here they are again in case you missed that post!
