Hi there! Welcome to the January MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just in case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.
This month, we're going to be product specific and promote the Circle STAX. We'd love to see any creative project that you have to share that is based on the Circle STAX products. Think out of the box, and really WOW us with your circles my friends! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a project for you today! I really embraced this Creative Challenge and had so much fun creating a mixed media mini art album featuring Circle STAX while using a combination of many MFT stamps and Die-namics dies.
I have lots to share so let's get started...
I started with a blank canvas, added lots of layers of inks, sprays and paint. Each page features either stenciled circles that I made using a homemade stencil (shown below) or die cut circles made using a combination of Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 and Set 2. BOTH die sets contain 10 dies each!!! The pages may look similar but like snowflakes, not two are the same ;)
The cover features a sentiment from DC Coupon Book - Love while the rest of the pages feature sentiments from this month's Triple Scoop FREE set: You Make My Day.
Using both Circle STAX Set 1 and Set 2 dies, I die cut book page paper, adhered them in place, then doodled around them:
I also added lots of hearts on my canvas mini album using various sized Die-namics Heart STAX dies. Using my homemade stencil, (shown below), I applied paint to the canvas then doodled around to accentuate.
Randomly place dies on a piece of Acrylic painting paper:
Run through die cut machine, then remove die cuts and dies:
Apply medium of choice:Repeat previous steps using various sized Die-namics Heart STAX dies:
Here's a photo of the canvas with all the stenciled circles and hearts:
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you enjoyed my canvas album as much as I enjoyed creating it! Remember to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a project that does not use patterned paper for you today!
Be Sweet :)
