Crazy Dogs Mini Canvases

Happy Monday y'all! I want to share with you today a really fun project that was inspired by a fantastic video by the fabulous and talented Nina-Marie Trapani (for Simon Says Stamp)  using Tim Holtz's Crazy Dogs stamps.

These are such cute little canvases, stamped with Archival Black ink and colored with Distress Crayons and water. See Kristina's video here!
I decided to make them into magnets by running them through the Xyron Creative Station loaded with the magnetic cartridge.

 The Distress Crayons leave such a great texture on the canvases (covered with a layer of gesso first).

The colors are so vibrant-not washed out like with other water coloring tools.

 Thanks for joining me today and be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog and Nina's video for more great inspiration!

  1. What a great idea! I have so many of Tim's images and dies as magnets on my refrigerator...time to create some new ones using the crazy critters! Love the coloring on all your images!
