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
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!”
Graphic 45 Supplies:
- Master Detective 12×12 Pad
