Proud To Be with Therm O Web

Hello, Friends! Happy Friday!

This week, vendors, artists, and crafters gathered in Salt Lake City for the third annual Sierra Pacific Crafts Mixed Media Show. And this year, for the first time, Therm O Web attended, showing off the latest addition to the Deco Foil line up….. Watercolor Deco Foils. And our new Mixed Media Sheets, too.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb ProudToBeCanvasSo of course this show is all about mixed media, and since America just celebrated its independence day, I combined the two to make a patriotic altered canvas, perfect for adding a touch of Americana to my home decor for the summer.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb ProudToBeCanvas3True to mixed media style, this 8×8 canvas is filled with layers. The background started with patterned paper, followed by layers of paint, stain, markers, and modeling paste. I used a Tim Holtz star layering stencil to create a subtle texture, and then added shiny bright detail with the new watercolor foils.

The Amber foil, used on the sparklers, has a beautiful metallic shine in a gold, silver, and copper watercolor wash. The Lapis foil, used to accent the firecrackers and the background, ranges  from shades of blue into metallic silver.

My funky junk firecrackers were free-hand cut and doodled. Those poor things have been sanded, torn, inked, painted, and stained, for an aged feel. Think I may have nailed that part!  I added rope wicks that I actually set on fire, for a bit of lifelike char. All in the name of art. Haha 😉

I’ve got a full step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

And here’s a peek at our 5 New Watercolor Deco Foil Transfer Sheets. From left to right: Amber, Emerald, Amethyst, Lapis and Summer Rainbow (coming soon!)
