Japanese Inspired Canvas

Hi there,

I am sharing 1 of my latest creations for Kuretake. The design team was asked to create Japanese inspired pieces. I created a canvas. I used ZIG Brushables markers to create the background. I love the markers. They are super easy to work with and perfect when trying to blend multiple colors. I also used a ZIG embossing pen to emboss details of the patterned paper that I chose to use. I love the end result.

Hugs, Karen

2013 Wishes

Happy New Year!!!

I am hoping that the New Year found you Happy, Healthy, and Blessed! It’s amazing how quickly the years roll around again…J
I am sharing a card created using some lovely papers by Graphic 45. I have been creating Asian themed projects for the Scrapbook News & Review magazine and ZIG design team, so I thought that I would create a fun card for the SOC blog as well.  I really enjoyed how this turned out. I cut out some of the Asian elements and popped them up to add a 3D element to the card. The colors in this patterned paper were so fun and really added some great energy to the creative process.
