Mixed Media: Vintage Paris Canvas

Ooh la la! This was such a fun project! I had been planning this video for a while now & I have a LOT of Paris-themed scrap booking stuff.

I got some empty canvasses (and a lot more) from my sweet friend Monique.
She makes the most beautiful amigurumi & jewelry (out of soda can tabs! How creative, right?) and she said she didn’t know what else to do with them. But I do!

 

Vintage Paris Canvas

 

So I made this vintage Paris canvas, with an old picture, a unicycle & much more! It turned out a little different then I was originally planning, but hey, what can you do? I love and have always loved Paris. La Belle Epoque, the Eiffel tower, the lights, the art…  Watch the time lapse video and get creative yourself!

 


 

Oh and hey! Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel! I love making video’s and I have a lot more coming. And Bloglovin’. I’m on that, too.

Sent: Tiny Dancer Postcard

I made this card for my grandmother, just a note to say hello. My grandmother lives an hour drive away, so I don’t get to see her very often. I really love to send her mail every now and then. She sent me a lovely postcard back, with cats on them!

I loved making this card, so I decided to do a how-to video. It was terrible getting it uploaded, so I hope you’ll enjoy it! If you have any questions, just ask.

Inspiration: Vintage & Delayed Bubble Mailer

Remember my altered bubble mailer post? The one I used to sent my grandmother her earrings?

Well, it received so many likes on Facebook, that I have decided to do a “how to” video! My first one! Yay!

I made another one, so it isn’t exactly the same, but you’ ll get the idea

Digital Download: make your own stationary

So, here I am in two snailmail Facebook groups, posting my vintage digital stationary. People seem to like it, but feel like they also want to experience with making their own stationary. It is cheaper, more creative & gives you the freedom to create what you want. Also, don’t forget the biggest benefit: if you run out of stationary, you can print more. And more….

Since making your own stationary is not really self explainatory, I kept feeling guilty over not helping someone properly (instead giving minor instructions).

That is why I created a tutorial for making your own stationary in Adobe Photoshop. It has a download link to where you can download the wondrous program for free. This guide is really handy for every (extreme) beginner in Photoshop. It tells you exactly what to do.

By the end of the guide, you will have a A4 sized document, with lines and stamps. There is also a two-page Questions & Answers section in there. Oh, and last but not least: a A4 sized PSD file with lines already on them (in case you don’t understand the tutorial).
