I have created a video for you today showing the process in creating this canvas. So sit back and relax while I walk you thru it! It is a bit lengthy, but I wanted to make sure I showed you each step! Enjoy!!

 If you are having trouble viewing it here, please visit the direct video on You Tube found here.
Doesn’t that look FUN!?!? There is SO much more that can be done with Spellbinders dies than what meets the eye!! Grab your favorite set and a canvas and see what you come up with!!! You’ll be glad you did!   I am new to watercolor paints, Gesso AND Modeling Paste, so if I can do it, so can you!!  Just grab a canvas and start playing! Nothing is wrong… if you don’t like it… just keep adding more paint, stamps, layers… until you DO like it!!  Explore BEYOND!!
Here is a second project that I created using the SAME two die templates (Plus a couple of others)! I love how versatile they are!! Stop by tomorrow for a quick video showing you how to create this project as well!

I have been experimenting with some really fun new techniques (new to ME anyway) and thought that the best way to share them with you is to do some little video's!! So, starting THIS Friday, and for every Friday thru March, I will be showing you a little something fun to try with your dies!!!
It actually begins TOMORROW, with the Spellbinders Explore Beyond Blog Frenzy!!! I have a video for you tomorrow using dies in a fun and different way! Can't WAIT to show you!
