VIDEO: Highlighting Collage Style Backgrounds + Patreon Update!

I have such a fun two part video for you today! The first section is where I create the colored/stamped portion of the background for both paper piecing and for this background, and the second portion is for creating the ghostly sea images on top of that with this stunning 3D embossing folder, a new-to-me foam tool and some white paint.

I was CRACKING UP putting that little sign in the octopus' tentacle haha. 

The die cuts are all colored with OLO markers - the octopus and jellyfish have three layers so you can do whatever colors you want.

I think this would make a phenomenal art journal page. Hmm. that gives me an idea.

I also have a Patreon update for you! I have added a membership level for my curated and tested recipes. I spend a ton of time selecting, adapting and creating recipes, and I thought I'd create a way for you to be able to collect PDFs of recipes with my notes and substitutions, photos of the food as well as my modifications to make them dairy free if you need that. So that is a new tier on Patreon. The normal crafty Patreon level remains as is - and if you sign up for the recipe level, you'll still get the crafty level benefits. When I've published enough, I'll assemble the individual recipe PDF's into a cookbook with an index that you can print or download. I've already uploaded my insanely delicious vegan lasagna recipe and will be adding more in the next week. I have them all categorized and the format is all the same.

I appreciate any support!

  1. This is gorgeous! I am terrible at collage style backgrounds. I can't wait to watch and learn!


Every time you leave a comment, a new LOLcat is born. ALSO - don't panic if you don't see your comment right away - I moderate my comments to keep those spammers out, so your comment will show up in short order. Unless you're linking me to Russian brides or Nigerian princes.
