It’s time to share some exciting news! My artwork has been published in the new Cards To Canvas book written by Colleen Schaan and published by Annie’s, publisher of the popular CardMaker magazine. Cards To Canvas is a book designed for crafters who want to LEARN some stamping and cardmaking techniques, DABBLE in some mixed media fun, and then APPLY those techniques and mediums to canvas wall art (or desk art)!
The 80-page book includes a wide range of product information, step-by-step illustrated instructions for each technique, and 26 beautiful full-color projects (with instructions) that showcase a wide variety of products and techniques. Some of the topics include: mark-making, stamping and doodling, collage, embossing and adding texture, adding color, faux finishes, and creating backgrounds.
Projects range from whimsical to artsy to vintage and feature something for all skill levels. The team of talented designers include: Elizabeth Allan, Mindy Baxter, Karen Crossen, Jill Foster, Michelle Houghton, Vivian Keh, Kate Palmer, Sharon Parcel, and Rhea Weigand.
The book is available in either print or digital formats and can be purchased from many of your favorite crafting stores or online bookstores. Also available directly from Annie’s at: https://www.anniescatalog.com/detail.html?prod_id=114818&cat_id=129
The image at the top is the canvas I shared and here is the card that I created with the same techniques. I always love working with Colleen and it was so much fun to get inky and messy creating for her amazing book! You will have to check out the book to learn more about how each of them were created.
The other artwork in the book is truly beautiful and the artists are all very talented. To take a look at more of their wonderful talent here are links to all of their blogs.
