#G45Love: Mixed Media Canvas Video Tutorial

Posted by Graphic 45 02/27/2018 45 Comment(s) Layouts,Mixed Media,Tutorials,Videos,

Hello, G45ers!

  Have you ever made a mistake while crafting that was so massive you wanted to walk away from your project?  If you answered yes, or even if you didn’t, you are not going to want to miss this must-see step by step YouTube video.  In this video Olga Heldwein shares a #G45Love canvas she has created to honor her parents.  We are loving how she mixes and matches Graphic 45 collections and  Staples to create this breathtaking mixed media canvas.  Plus, the best part is watching the creative process, when Olga wants to give up she keeps going and in the end comes out with a masterpiece.  

 

#G45Love Mixed Media Canvas

By Olga Heldwein

 

“Heyall G45-ers!

Olga here again with a love-themed project for #G45LOVE project. You still have few days to participate in this challenge and have the chance to win an amazing prize worth $150!!!

The 
theme was love I just had to frame a photo of my parents. They were perfect sweethearts for more than 35 years. Always crazy in love and it was this kind of perfect love that you see in movies - till my dad passed away a few years ago. But still when I think about Love in general my parents just appear in my head as a perfect example.

You liked my previous video so you might check out this one again as I'm not learning my mistakes and my project went south again. But I pulled it off and left all steps in my process video as I got so much good feedback after last one.
This time my mistake was putting all this emotional value on my project and I
 really wanted to make something super special and totally forgot everything I know about framing photos.  (Rule one do not attach emotionally to project until you’re done.)

Is it my best work? Definitely not, but do I like it? Definitely yes. To save my project I used some leftovers from one that was damaged (My application to this DT work that I recreated cause it got damaged on travels but I saved original and used elements here )


So here is video link for you and I wish you super creative day with G45!”

~Olga

Olga - never, ever cover up what you think are "mistakes". They are treasures on the way to greatness and sharing them is a blessing you bestow on all of us. We all learn from each other. Thank you for this delightful look into your creative process. It looks a lot like mine!

I can't believe that project started with a mistake! I love it. It was such a creative mix of collections that it took me a few minutes to identify them. Well done project.

I love your mixed media Olga! I also want to thank you for including your 'mistakes'; I am on the third try for making a lid for a boxed album, it just isn't going well. Thanks to you I will keep trying! ...and I love that we learn as we make mistakes and fix them!

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
