Hello everyone,

Today I have three mini art pieces to share, I have used "Foils" to create these projects. This was something new for me as I have never used Foils earlier on my projects. But after completing these I was so thrilled & happy with the outcome and they were quick and easy to make!

Let me share the picture of my projects first,

I loved the shimmery effect achieved with fun foil, it is so easy to use and you can use it on different surfaces!

A brief tutorial:

To begin with you need following art supplies:
  • Fun Foil from Craftyscrappers

  • Adhesive Foam Sheet
  • White cardstock
  • Fevicol
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper
  • OHP sheet or vellum
  • Cardboard (to lay tissue paper)
  • Embossing powder 
  • Heat tool 
To create the tissue paper background, I took a piece of cardboard and glued tissue paper to it roughly 

Now give it a coat of white gesso...

And spray it with shimmer spray "Sweet Sunshine" from Craftyscrappers

Further procedure is explained in the video...

Added diecut houses and sentiment tag to complete the look.

For this I have created the background using the same technique with tissue paper. Then embellished it with flowers and diecuts. To create the tiles follow the process in video.

And for this one I just picked some pieces of lace, natural twigs tied with yellow satin ribbon to create a bed for my butterflies. Background & butterfly making process is also mentioned in video.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Crafting!
