Maple leaves

This is the first of nine canvases which feature Diesire Mixed Media dies from Crafter’s Companion. I’ve been privileged to have my art work appear on the product packaging. They launch in the US on 10th January 2017 and coming to the UK soon. There are 9 sets in all. I’ve been asked to make each set the main subject of each canvas. No mixing of the sets! Not as easy as it sounds..you will see as the madness unfolds!

This first piece uses the Maple leaves dies. The main cutting material is craft metal, embossed using CC texture embossing folders and coloured with alcohol inks. The background is created using aqua tint inks and pebeo gold paint.

I used water colour card and complimentary coredinations card.

The dies are designed to cut a wide range of materials- mount board, metal, fabric,felt, balsa wood etc


Also I had to do two versions of each canvas, one for the packaging and the UK and the other as a sample for the US launch of the product at HSN on 10th January 2017. So here’s the other one.


A little bolder but same idea and method.
