Playing with somethings new.. Mix Media, Resins, Silicon Molds and Woodburning

Some of you already know from the Facebook etc. that I have been playing around with  some new craft projects lately. Some of these are things I haven’t done in years… and really wanted to  get back into and share  with my son.  He is a little too young right now to be doing these crafts himself, but I see the look in his eye when he is “helping” mommy and I can tell he is itching to be able to do some himself.

I try and  make sure that a lot of my projects are things he can participate in…  even  at this age because as some of you know, I plan to homeschool him and creativity is a huge part of learning in this house.

So what have we been up to…. lots of experimenting…. as always haha.  Let’s just say  this mommy really should learn to wear latex gloves .. job hunting when your fingers look like Darth Maul… probably not the best idea haha.  I just get engrossed in what I am doing and I am not the most diligently prepared crafter haha..I like to spend my time being creative, not getting ready to create… but at least  have stopped crafting in my good clothes… there is hope for me yet!!!


One of the things we like to do is incorporate lots of different media, techniques and ideas into one project… boy do we !! lol  so lately we have been playing with resins, and woodburning.

 

We’ll be using these various project ideas and techniques throughout the coming year.. so be sure to subscribe if this is something you have wanted to try, or if you are a mix media artist who loves to decorate boxes, create unique artwork and wall hangings… this is going to be a lot of fun.





I picked up a woodburning iron last year and haven’t had as much time as I would have liked…. till now to actually play with it and get in some practice.  Now I get asked all the time, did you freehand that… NO… I cold only wish I was that artistic.  So I know there are others out there who would love to be able to do  projects like this, but feel  that they don’t have the artistic skills needed.. WRONG …. you just need to think outside of the box … a really nice wooden box…or blank, or frame… or anything else you fancy having a go at.



 


I was going to hold off on this post for a while till I had some full step by step projects to share….. but when I ran across this company Rockler Woodworking and Hardware doing a Google search for Branding Iron alphabets… I had to…. not only sign up for their  affiliate program, but I also found they do have a store near us and do classes and demo’s.. so you just know I am going to have to go check that out.


Now this company is mostly aimed at Woodcrafters.. which makes me drool since I no longer have any of the tools I used to have back in the UK… * sigh… BUT.. they also have a lot of cool products that are perfect for crafters  like me…and that is why I am sharing this with you all.


They carry a range  of Woodburning kits, including the alphabet irons I was looking for…. woot !!  these alphabet  sets thread into the iron just the same as regular tips.

 


 

They also have this gorgeous range of wood dyes that look perfect for an upcoming project next year.  You may have seen the burnt and inked blanks already… I am dying to try these out for that technique. I have a few wooden boxes  waiting to be  played with that would be perfect for this.


So stay tuned for some fun and projects and tutorials  early next year… maybe even a  video or two or 100 lol

The New Cricut Maker Machine… Easy Press and more!

 if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Well Cricut sure have been busy… and so have we.  Summer vacations (I wish), getting ready for back to school and all those fun summer weddings and get togethers.  As most of you know  my son is  going to be homeschooled, so crafting is a huge part of our life.

No one said education had to be boring… right LOL

Even though he isn’t technically starting homeschooling till next year, we still do a lot of fun projects designed to help him learn and have fun and be creative all at the same time. Part of that is our abandoned art projects, which is so much fun to do with kids and teaches them to give freely and enjoy it.

Now I wish we had this new Cricut Maker, have you seen this beauty yet? It’s due for release TODAY !!!!. I checked out the video and almost  died when I saw that not only will it cut fabrics, but it’s also  cutting wood  as well as all the stuff we usually do on our Cricuts like paper and vinyl.

Interchangeable cutting heads and the separate pen holders too. I used to own a scroll saw many years ago and this looks like it’s going to do the same kind of fret work that I did back then…..  VERY cool.  Can’t wait to see this one roll out… !!! woohoo.  I think my stepdaughter in Australia  might like this one, she’s a big sewer.

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!

and then of course there is the recent arrival of the light box... I know  that would be really useful for  us, specially me with my aging eyes.

Shop the Cricut BrightPad today!

…and then they up the ante with the new Cricut Easypress..  think of all the fun shirts you can create for back to school.  Kids just love getting a new school wardrobe every year… and the money you can save and being unique… what kid doesn’t want to have something cool and unique.  I hate ironing, but this… I have to confess I think I’d use for every day ironing too lol.  I know this is something one of my DT girls would love, she’s big on HTV projects… I am so sorry Donna lol.  Hopefully you already saw that and won’t blame me haha.  It looks so cool though doesn’t it.

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!Cricut sure are trying to  get us set up for winter with some fab new toys to keep us busy once the summer is over and we get done with back to school, wedding and summer projects. Then the weather starts to cool and we have more time indoors.  It’s right on target for when most of us start thinking about the fall holidays and Christmas gift projects we have to  get stuck into over the coming months.

Have you seen the Cricut Mint Machine Bundle…?  check out that price and all the goodies that come with it.  I am so coveting the new Explore 2… I would love one of these.   If you are totally new to Cricut, which is rare nowadays… but always a possibility..   There are so many cool things you can do with these machines…way beyond what Cricut even show you. Card making, scrapbooking, home decor, kids crafts, personalized clothing, gifts, packaging…… just  the tip of the iceberg.



We had one member on the message board who made all of the signs  for his re-enactment group.

Me.. I bought mine to make custom photo mats then got hooked ..and there is still a tonne of things I haven’t even tried yet.

One of my favorite  things about my Cricut is the aftermarket Adapters I bought,  which sadly are not available for the ONE.. but they are available for the Explore, Explore Air and Air 2 and those are  FANTASTIC. these are pen adapters for the Circut by a company called Chomas Creations and they allow you to expand the range of pens you can use in your Cricut.  For people like me..that is HUGE…it has opened up a whole new world of potential projects that I wouldn’t normally attempt because my handwriting is terrible and my calligraphy skills.. non existent lol.  But not just that..  that means I can draw with so many more pens than before…




One of my favorites and one of the most popular pins on my pinterest page is this.. the powder embossing done on the Explore. Yup.. POWDER EMBOSSING drawn on the Cricut.









This allows me to take  designs and instead of cutting them, I can draw them and emboss them.. LOVE LOVE LOVE this.  There are other embossing pens, including one I made myself.. but these Zig Embossing pens coupled with the Chomas Adapter.. SWEET !!!




















Anyone who is a regular on here knows how much I love my Zip pens.. and  most all of them will work in my Cricut with the adapter… with the exception of the  big chalk pens. But that is ok…. because I can outline on the Cricut then trace over it with my bigger pens when I want to do chalk signs.  Way better than anything I could ever achieve by hand.





And of course.. the ..  how could I not share what is probably my favorite paper to use on the Cricut.. this stuff is AWESOME.



It cuts beautifully, looks and feels amazing and gives a little extra something something to projects.



These projects were done with Black Velvet paper, but it comes in a bunch of other colors.. including white, which I love to print and color digital stamps on.


















Did I mention stencils…  check out this etched glass beer stein I made a couple of years ago using a stencil I made and cut on the Cricut. This was for one of our message board challenges. I  Just cut my stencil from vinyl, slapped it on..slapped on etching cream and voila.. a fun beer mug  🙂

 









…so by now, if you are new to the Cricut….you are probably beginning to realize the Cricut can do a lot more than just use images on cartridges and on Design Space Access…. Yup you can upload your own designs or designs purchased elsewhere. Card templates, toppers, digital stamps.  I’ve  got a confession… I don’t subscribe to Access, I own probably 10 cartridges.. and I use my Cricut to make a lot of cool projects.   So if the price of Access, or the designs not being to your taste is something that was holding you back ..  never fear… this machine still has a lot to offer.

Print and Cut is fantastic, and when the DS3 ( Design Space update) comes out soon… it’s going to be even better.  I for one.. can’t wait.  DS3 has so many cool new features… admittedly there are still some things I would love to have added on…  because I am used to having them in my graphics programs.. but it’s not a big deal to do it externally and then upload them.

Check out some of these fun projects done using Cricut Print and cut…
