Sometimes I find it challenging to commit to a line of product. I want to play with it, but I do not want to invest in buying the entire thing. I adore the Media Packs from Canvas Corp Brands. Each pack comes with a variety of products without an overwhelming amount that drives the cost up. I always can get a lot of use from them. I was able to create six cards with leftovers in which I made Artistic Trading Cards. The “Compose Your Life” line is a stunner! Not only are the images gorgeous, but they are printed on watercolor paper in which you can add your own touch. For this project I did pull in two additional sheets from the line, but not part of the pack to create the embellishments. I also used a few Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists from my stash on the textured wood paper as well as the tags.
Here are my cards and how I created them:
The sentiments with this line are gorgeous.
I trimmed each out and inked the edges for the cards.
I misted the tags from the pack in coordinating Tattered Angel Sprays from my stash and set aside to dry.
I used Glam Glaze in the wood grain paper and inked it lightly to bring out the texture.
To assemble the cards I picked out bits and pieces for each card as I went.
I added pop dots to add a more interest and depth to the cards.
Here are the cards I created:
It is amazing how much use and fun you can have from the mixed media packs. Go to the shop and see if a line you have been curious about is available in a pack!
Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
