Creative University Make and Takes

Saturday, March 14, 2009



Students at Creative University had the option to create this 12x12 canvas decor item. The canvas background is painted with acrylic paints using a wet-on-wet technique for the soft color blending, then a dry-brush technique for the aged edges. The two rolled roses on the project were created by hand, I'll be posting a video tutorial on how to create these flowers in the future.



Additionally, there were two more make-and-takes at Create U. Everyone enjoyed making the world-famous paper cupcake.


Sheila and Kris makin' their cakes.


And lastly, this quick and easy shaker card, using real cake sprinkles. How cute is that?
