A New Collaboration for CCB Creative Crew Friends..and What I Have Been Up To

Hi Friends <3
I have been having so much fun and been crazy busy in my little studio. Not cleaning it up mind you..but making art art and more art :) I have put out a video every day for a week..just for fun! I am enjoying myself so much and definitely on an upswing in mood. I think it shows...as my Youtube channel just went over 2000 subscribers! I wanted to share with you today what I have been up to.
First...I think the collaboration of people who are making videos for the Canvas Corp Brands is going to be monthly. Well..at least this is the second month and we are planning a theme and date for July.
The theme this month was 'Your Favorite Music' Here is my project :) A music themed dream journal for my kid.



He and I both enjoy rock music. He tends more towards the heavy metal and I usually choose more alternative or grunge style...but we can easily listen to whatever the other one likes. So, the cover of the journal reflects that style of music with the electric guitars all over it. I used canvas fabric from Canvas Corp Brands (wow..they make canvas..lol) As well as several colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I made my own electric guitar stencil with some plastic from a page protector and a hot knife. The lyrics on the front are from an Aerosmith song...they seemed appropriate! A list of products with links are below.


Tattered Angels Mists Used


So in addition to this fun project using Canvas Corp Brands products...I have been continuing the Index Card A Day challenge. I have completed 9 cards and 3 videos...so still a long way to go LOL...61 days worth! If you want to join this challenge...here is the link DaisyYellowArt And here are the 6 cards since last I posted..as well as the 2 videos so you can see the process of making them if you wish :) 










I also had a lot of fun creating a mixed media altered playing card this week. I tried to imitate the tattooing style called 'American traditional' and made the classic Gypsy image, This was for a group I am in on Facebook that has weekly themes for altering playing cards. If you think this sounds fun..here is the link to the FB group. Mixed Media Altered Playing Cards And here is my Gypsy with a rose :)



I hope you have enjoyed this update with all the crazy links to everything :) If you did..leave me a comment so I know you were here!
