Up-cycling 3D MDF Heart with Mixed Media Structurizer

 

Hello everyone

I am so pleased to be able to finally put together a Video Tutorial on our Creative Craft Channel based around our White Mixed Media Structurizer.

As some of you might know, this is a really great product which enables you to create something really unique by just using up bits of fabric or ribbon that you are no longer using.

The properties of this product allow you to stiffen up  your fabric and essentially create a 3D effect.

It is very easy to use and for those of you that you have never used our Structurizer before here are  some bullet points about it

 

“This Mixed Media Structurizer is essentially a high quality fabric stiffener, which enables you to create all types of structures and 3D work.

This product is water-based, and will work as a hardener for any absorbent materials like fabric, paper, or cardboard (it will not stick to non-absorbent materials like plastic).

When completely dry, it can be painted , you can also use varnishes or waxes.

With its adhesive properties, it’s an incredibly versatile craft cupboard must-have!

It can be applied to non-porous materials simply by using a masking tape as a primer first to wrap up a bottle of wine for example than applying a Structurizer onto a fabric and onto your project.”

 

In this video tutorial I am up-cycling my 3D MDF Heart that I have created a long time ago and transforming it into completely different look simply by using our White Mixed Media Structurizer.

I am also adding other Mixed Media products and embellishments but the foundation for this transformation is the White Structurizer and Rustic Hessian, as simple as that.

 

I hope you will enjoy watching this Video Tutorial and find it both educational and interesting.

MDF Merry Christmas Wreath – Project Giveaway on YouTube Channel!

 

 

Hello everyone…since our last post we thought that we would try to introduce a couple of new things to our Creative Craft Channel, hopefully adding a little pizzazz to our video tutorials.
And so we have our First Project Giveaway on our YouTube Channel, which is very exciting for us.
I have chosen our MDF Merry Christmas Wreath to be our first giveaway project simply because I just love decorating it and it looks very effective when finished regardless of what colour or decorations you choose.
We aim to continue with a Project Giveaway on a monthly basis and we hope to make it a regular thing for anyone who follows us on our Channel.
In this video tutorial I am using White Gesso to paint my Wreath. Primarily Gesso is a primer but I really wanted to have whiter finish to my Wreath so I did not add any other colour paint to it and I hope you will agree that White Gesso on it’s own looks great.
To make up my Poinsettias I have used some papers from our Blissful Paper Pads – Peach, Cocoa and Pink which look great together. For the centre of my Poinsettias I have used our Natural Fibre rolled into little balls.
To add special effects I have used our Natural Olive Green Moss, Stamens and Dried Flowers. The extra special highlights are Pearl Strands, 3D Snow in a Bottle, Crushed Ice and Snow Balls which make everything just that bit more magical.
This video tutorial is really showcasing how easy it is to decorate our MDF Merry Christmas Wreath and how quickly you can achieve the Shabby Chic look with just a few steps and three natural products which I love.
If you would like to win this Merry Christmas Wreath all you have to do is to follow three easy steps: 1. SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL, 2. LIKE OR SHARE, 3. LEAVE A COMMENT and at the end of the month we will pick a winner.
If you have any questions or feedback regarding this Video Tutorials please comment.

Lazy Gift Box – YouTube Video Tutorial

Hello again everyone…

Would you like like to make a very quick Gift Box that does not require any sticky tape or glue???

Well, a few years ago now I had this Christmas gift for my friend that I needed to wrap in a nice box but very little time to find a suitable box for the gift or even less time to make one in a conventional sort of way…and it was than that I had first come up with this idea of a Gift Box.

I call it a “Lazy” box because it’s so quick to make and it does not require any sticky tape or glue and your A4 piece of card will go such a long way for all those larger gifts.

With a traditional box you need to score four sides to your box and you need to do it for the top and bottom and as you know it can take up some time to make it but not with this one…

When you are pushed against the time this Lazy Gift Box Video Tutorial will hopefully show you how quick making Gift Boxes is possible.

To make this Gift Box I am using one of my favorite card that we sell – Pure Kraft Card https://annamariedesigns.co.uk/shop/card/pure-craft-card/pure-kraft-card-cut-sizes/pure-kraft-card/

and also Blissful Paper Pads to decorate the Box with https://annamariedesigns.co.uk/product-category/blissful-paper-pads/

If you have any questions or feedback regarding this Video Tutorials please comment.

I do hope you will enjoy watching this Video Tutorial on How to make a Lazy Gift Box and you will also agree with me that this way of making Gift Boxes is very easy…

See you again very soon with our next Video Tutorial.

Very Best Wishes as always.

Inka Gold Creamy Waxes – Video Tutorials


Hello again everyone…if you have never used Inka Gold Waxes or you have them but you are not sure how to use them, then this month we have a new set of Video Tutorials on our Creative Craft Channel showcasing this product and much more…

I am delighted to be introducing this Video Tutorial featuring Inka Gold Creamy Waxes for you as this product is so versatile that I hope you will find it irresistible…

The great thing about these Inka Gold products are the colouring properties on so many different materials not only on card and paper but also glass, metal and leather.

In my first video tutorial I am showcasing different ways to use the Inka Gold Waxes for colouring a variety of products and how easy it is to create your own misters and paints.

The second video that we are also launching today will show you how to make a Christmas Card by combining some of the techniques from the first Video Tutorial and other products like MDF Christmas Embellishments to create your own stencil effect, Blissful Papers and Natural Accents for the final arrangements and finishing touches.

I hope you will watch both videos which I believe might be helpful as the first video is more about the techniques and the second is more about the design but utilising the techniques from the first Video Tutorial.

I’m positive that this can be the start of a journey enabling you to apply these colouring techniques to a wide variety of projects as they are hugely satisfying.

Of course in these video tutorials I am using some of my favourite natural products which are Natural Fibre, Dried Flowers, Voile, Feathers, Mini Foam Sprigs, just to name a few as an example of the type of product that you can change the colour of…

If you have never used Inka Gold Waxes I hope these video tutorials tempt you to try using at least one colour because I am positive that you will love it.

We do offer a comprehensive choice of colour ways of Inka Gold Creamy Waxes extending across a wide ranging colour palette. They are fantastic for blending and covering elements as you will see in this Video Tutorial…as well as forthcoming Video Showcases launching in the near future!

I hope you will enjoy watching these two Video Tutorials and find it both educational and encouraging for those of you that have never tried Inka Gold Waxes before.
