 WOW! Design Team Project

WOW day 4Today’s WOW! Designer is Erika Taylor.  You can see her project below, but before that, here is a little more about Erika:

Cutting rings of paper to create garland, making ghost gum from glue, and adding a little too much glitter to any heart I drew. The creative bug bit me at a very early age and I’ve never looked back. Hi everyone, I’m Erika Taylor and I’m a craftaholic!!! In 2008, I decided to start paper crafting and one thing led to another. I’m blessed to have been on numerous design teams over the past few years and I’m expanding my own creative muse to include so much more than just cards and scrapbook layouts. I love getting inked up to create mixed media projects and if I can alter something, I will.

I live in Southern Alberta with my loving and supportive husband Mark and our 2 boisterous children age 4 and 7. Anything to do with Vampires and the Fantasy Realm gets my attention, and yes that includes Twilight!  I love Italian Sweet Cream in my coffee and there is nothing better than Tiramisu. I’m moved by the colors around me, emotions and the media. Creatively, I embrace change and love to try new things and I’m super excited about being a part of this amazing adventure.

Decorated Canvas

I love working with canvas and mixed media. They are a perfect match for just letting go and seeing where the creative journey will take me. Working with Wow Embossing Powders on canvas can result in some amazing looks. For this canvas, the entire background has been created using Wow Embossing Powders, a little bit of Molding Paste and a few small sprays of Glimmer Mist. The texture is amazing and everything really pops.

WOW Day 5

First for the canvas, I prepped it sparingly with Gesso. Once dry I applied Versamark to the entire surface and using a spoon, sprinkled Wow Embossing Powders onto the surface itself. I used a combination of Berrylicious, Silver Regular, Angel Wings, Bubble Gum and Pastel Pink. I layered colors over top on one another until I achieved the texture, color and height that I wanted. In certain areas, when the embossing powder was still molten, I sprinkle a combination of water drops and embossing powder to gain even more texture.

WOW Day 5

The FabScraps Chipboard pieces have been covered with Berrylicious and Angel Wings Embossing powder as well. Overall, a perfect canvas for our little girls bedroom was created using some amazing colors of embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powders.

Paper Crafter’s Library Designer Projects

For today’s Paper Crafter’s Library Projects Tracy shows demonstrates the technique of embossing using a template from Crafter’s Workshop, VersaMark ink and Wow! Embossing Powders as she shows you how to create the For My Friend Card shown below.

Download the pdf handout here

You can watch a video on how Tracy created this card here.

Our last project for today, is a Paper Crafter’s Library exclusive – this  Mr. & Mrs. card. This card features both Wow’s embossing powders as well as embossing glitters.  Unfortunately the picture is not the best, but Tracy uses the Wow! embossing glitter to create the swirls on the background paper and then the regular Embossing Powder for the greeting.

There is a video tutorial and handout for this project available to our Paper Crafter’s Library members.

So there you have it! Day 2 of our celebration of Wow! Embossing Powders I hope you have enjoyed all the projects that our design team and the Wow! design team have created for you.
