Rinea foil tag

 Hey everyone and thank you for stopping by my blog for another Rinea design team project. 
For my project I decided to do one of my most favorite projects to create.......tags. 



I love creating tags for birthdays, graduations and baby showers. 
I find that I like to make these ahead of time so that I can quickly grab and go whenever I need one for a gift. 

For my tag I used the Tim Holtz kraft tags and distressed the edges with my sissors creating some tears in random spots. 

I them added texture paste randomly on my tag going diagonally from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. I took my heat gun to dry my texture paste quickly. As most may know I'm very impatient hahaha.

I then use scraps of Rinea foil paper in the star struck gold which I tore the edges to give the foil a distress look.  I then added the foil to my tags. 
I love using Rinea foil because it gives each project that pop of shine.  

I found a random piece of lettered pattern paper that I placed in the middle of my tag and used as an outline to create my flower cluster.  
As most may know my go to flowers to use are wildorchid craft flowers which is used in various sizes. 

I added dark brown twine and called my project finished.

This project was quick and easy to make.

Don't miss out on these amazing products. They are reasonably priced and come in a variety of colors and textures.

Altered Pringles Can using Rinea Foil

Hey guys and thank you once again for joining me for another Design Team project for Rinea.



It seems every month I have a new found obsession.  From banners to mixed media canvas to my new favorite Bullet Journaling which has also included a pen obsession and Distress Inking.
While sitting at my desk planning my week with pens and blending pads scattered everywhere trying to find the blue blending pad I just had a second ago, it came to me.
Why not use the Pringles can I threw out in the recycling bin and alter it into a pen/blending pads holder!

Which leads to my altered project.
 I couldn't be more happier of the outcome of my project and knew my crafting friends would enjoy it also so I made a quick tutorial which you can find the video linked below or at my YouTube channel.

 

 I was able to create this beautiful pen holder with supplies I had in my stash
. This is a great way to upcycle "junk" or as I like to call them treasures! 


Below are some Glamor shots of the new ink blender holder.

Altered Wood Canvas with Rinea Foil- DCC Blog Hop

Hello and thank you for joining me for the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop featuring a fun easy spring project.
I created a fun altered wooden canvas that gives your home a touch of spring. This beautiful canvas gave a lovely touch to my workspace.  


I found the wooden canvas at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section. 
I used some die cuts from my stash that I had cut out from my cameo along with a corrugated backing I had from some left over packaging.   


I used some Rinea Foil to give my project that pop of color and help draw the eyes to the center of my canvas.


I add my favorite Wild Orchid Craft Flowers and some heavy gel medium to my corners which I used as glue to add the crush glass glitter to my edges.


You can check out the full process video of my project below.

Spring Mixed Media Canvas

With new seasons comes new inspiring projects. This means brighter colors not only outside my crafting window but inside my crafting space as well.
One of my favorite things to do is decorate my craft shed and what better way to get inspired then by the beautiful blossoming flowers I see outside my window.
 
 
 
One of the greats thing about crafting is the flexibility for change. I had originally planned to create an Easter project since its right around the corner but soon changed my mind when I grabbed a cluster of premade flowers I created when I was inspired by the beautiful view of spring outside my window.
 

 
My first step was to prep my canvas with Gesso. I knew I was going to want to use some of my Heidi Swap sprays and wanted to make sure that my color soaked into the canvas. 
I set aside my canvas to dry and went on to choosing my papers. I had a few papers I pulled from my stash and ended up deciding on this pink paper from Jillibean soup which I then backed with the beautiful Star Struck Textured foil from Rinea.

 
Now on to my favorite part of a project! FLOWER CLUSTERS!!!  I use flowers from Wild Orchid Craft and Michaels Recollection flowers to embellish my canvas. 
 
 

 
I added texture paste that I mixed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and used a stencil to apply.
 
 


 



My final step was to add some crushed silver glass glitter with heavy gel in random spots of my canvas. I'm very happy with  how my project came out and can't wait to hang it up in my crafting space.
 
I added more detailed photos down below.


 
 Thank you for joining me for another Rinea Design Team Project.
Below is a full list of products use to create this beautiful canvas along with a full detailed video tutorial.
