Buttons Carrot 🥕

easter spring Mar 13, 2024

In this tutorial, we'll be creating a charming 4x12 spring-themed carrot art piece adorned with adorable orange buttons. I found a fantastic variety pack of buttons on Amazon, offering an array of sizes, shades, and designs, perfect for adding character to our creation. Join me as we paint our carrot canvas, embellish it with buttons and green vitrigraph, and seal it with a coat of resin. This project is beginner-friendly, making it an ideal choice for those just starting their journey into glass and resin art!

Start by painting your canvas with black acrylic paint. Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place white graphite paper underneath, and trace your carrot onto your canvas with a stylus. 

Paint your carrot with Spiced Pumpkin orange paint. Dry with a heat tool and paint a second coat. I'll also use a liner brush to paint the top leafy part with Hauser Medium Green. Start at the top of your carrot and just switch up with your brush. Dry with a heat tool.

Easter Bunny 🐰

bunny easter Apr 05, 2023

I'm using a 4x12 canvas to create an adorable Easter Bunny! I'm painting this one with a black background and long ears filled with pink seed beads. This one is simple, cute, and easy for your Easter and spring decor. Plus, you only need a handful of supplies to make this original art piece!

Grab your tracer, tape it to the canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and transfer your bunny with a stylus onto the canvas. 

Next, paint the edges and background of your canvas with black paint. Let dry or dry with a heat gun.

I'll paint my bunny with Anita's White and I'll use Bleached Sand for some shading and highlighting. I'll also use Poodleskirt Pink to lightly paint the ears, nose, and cheeks. I'll also paint her eyes with some black paint, and a tiny dot of white paint. 

Grab your graphic pen and we'll add some cute details, like eyelashes and whiskers. I'll also add some outlining around her face and ears. I have a DecoColor Metallic Gold...

Dogwood Cross ✝️

cross easter Mar 29, 2023

I'm creating a beautiful Dogwood Cross on an 8x10 canvas with a pearl paint background. I'll be making my cross out of purple glass strips and then I'll be adding a Dogwood flower in the center with pieces from a glass vase. We'll finish it off with some seed beads, Starfire glass, bubbles, and resin!

First, I am going to paint my background with Metallic White paint. I am adding two coats of this, and drying it with a heat gun each time.

Then, I'm going to take my purple glass strips and form my cross. I'm going to lay them flat and stack them, gluing them to my canvas with tacky glue. I'll add some Starfire glass around my cross. Finally, I'm adding green seed beads to the center. 

Next, we will add resin. We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Then, drizzle over your glass. Pour the remainder of the resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

Then, I'm taking...

I am using a 5x7 canvas to create a fun and festive bunny art piece with an Easter egg balloon. We'll be adding lots of fun embellishments like glass and some cute daisies that I grabbed from Hobby Lobby. This is an adorable art piece for the spring season and the Easter holiday!

Grab your tracer, tape it to the canvas, place transfer paper underneath, and transfer the outline of your bunny and balloon with a stylus onto the canvas. 

I am going to paint my background with Calypso Blue and white, just painting around the bunny and balloon. I'm going to paint my canvas edges too. Let dry or dry with a heat gun. 

I'm going to paint my Easter egg balloon with a base coat of white paint and then I'm going to add some Crocus Yellow. I'll also add a base coat of white paint to my bunny too. Then, I'll add some Hauser Green Light to the bottom of my canvas for grass. Let dry or dry with a heat gun.

Now we're going to add some color to our Easter egg. I'm using...

Cute Animal Print Bunny 🐰

We are doing a cute little 5x7 animal print bunny today - just the silhouette - using some gorgeous animal print foil and a pink glass tail. This one is so fun, simple, and easy! Such a great project for beginners!

First, we're going to start by painting our background. I'm doing a pink Dragonfruit color as well as mixing some white paint in. This is really going to make that animal print pop! Let dry.

Next, grab your tracer and tape it to your canvas. Place your graphite paper underneath and trace your bunny with your stylus. 

Now it's time to add our animal print foil! We are going to use foil adhesive. Just paint it on to your entire bunny silhouette, making sure to cover those tracer lines. Let dry. Next, lay your animal print foil pattern-side up onto your canvas. Press it down and scrub it onto your canvas to transfer the pattern. 

I'm going to take my graphic pen to add some details. I'm outlining my entire bunny and adding some whiskers. Then, I'm going to...
