Fish Key Chains **Makin's Clay & Beacon & Decoart**

I wanted to make something fun for the boys (my boys and nephews) for the summer, but what little crafty items do you give to boys - key chains!!!  They do not have to sue them just like a key chain as what little boys have keys, but as a backpack fob or vacation bag zipper pull why not?!?!?

I used some of the amazing Makin's white clay mixed with blue DecoArt Traditions paint to make the fish from the Makin's clay push mold in a fun light blue color.  Here is a full video on how I made these cute fish key chains!

Here is the full supply visual for of Makin's Clay products I used.

Bag Tags for School or Vacation **Deflecto & Tattered Angels & Beacon & Canvas Corp & 7 Gypsies**

Take a look at my fun bag tags I made for my kids to place on their bags for vacation or school backpacks for a fun ID tag just using their first name initials, and I just had to make them mixed media style :)

Here is a detailed video on how I made these fun tags for my kids.

I used the first name initial of each of the kids names for the large letter on the tag help identify which was which, and then picked their favorite color for the papers, ribbons, and embellishments.  

 Here are some up close pictures of the project and on the bags.

So now my kids have fun clips to place on their bags to claim them as theirs!!

Mixed Media Dominoes **Tattered Angels**

I love to just play with my paints and see what happens, so this time I am playing with some dominoes and Tattered Angels paints to create something fun.  I found the larger dominoes in the clutter of my house cleaning up (that happened when you have young kids), the rest have long since been tossed away, but as I held these two dominoes in my hand as I vacuumed under the couch from where they had been since lost my creativity struck and beckoned me to paint them.  I then remembered that years back I had come across some tiny little dominoes and thought they would be fun to craft with some day, well that day had come and I set off to create, vacuum left sitting by the couch as I could not wait to make these into something pretty. 

I started out by painting them with black gesso and them doing lots of layered of paints and mists with stencils.  Last was the stamps to add that finishing touch.  Here is a video tutorial on how I made them.


There are many more pictures and detailed info on supplies used on the Canvas Corp Blog, hurry and check it out!!
