Be Your Creative Self!
We love the two ideas from Robin Shakoor and Arlene Cuevas today. It's always important to have inspiration around us to remind us to be creative. Today, there are 2 incredible ideas from 2 amazing designers with 2 tutorials! It's going to be a super fun day.
"This quick and easy project can be created in less than 30 minutes. I chose one of my favorite quotes from the “World’s Fair” collection and framed it. I cut a balloon image from the “Balloon Bouquet” sheet, then finished my design with a tag from the Tags and Pockets sheet. This simple and quick project now serves as daily inspiration for me in my craft room.
Tip: Frames aren’t just for photo! Try framing your favorite quote and placing it in your home for inspiration." ~Robin

Now, get inspired by Arlene! She found a bargain deal and turned it into an incredibly unique mixed media masterpiece. Her video tutorial below is so awesome!
"I created this sign for my craft room to remind me to grow creatively this year. I love to work with mixed media, but have found little time to really sit down and enjoy it this past year. I hope this sign will remind me to take the time to be creative in 2016. :-) I created a video tutorial to show you how this mixed media sign came together. Happy 2016!
TIP: Be sure to work in a well ventilated area when working with mixed media sprays and glues like E6000." ~Arlene
