Hello, Mags here, today I am sharing the reverse canvas I created for a recent Hochanda show.

  1. Spread texture paste onto the edges of the reverse of the canvas to cover the joins in the canvas and the staples.
  2. Once dry measure and fit a panel of scrapbook paper into the recess,
  3. Add Distress ink to the texture paste to highlight the texture.
  4. Stamp wording onto the scrapbook paper
  5. Randomly stamp script onto the frame and paper
  6. Gesso the Butterfly panel, once dry colour with Sharpie Markers.
  7. Add details with a white gel pen
  8. Attach the butterfly panel to the canvas with heavy gel medium

I would love to see what you create inspired by this project so please share in the Facebook group mentioning this blog post and tagging me.

Have fun and happy crafting.

Mags x

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)
