But First, Coffee…. Painted Canvas With Karla

Hi friends!! Karla here today with a pretty painted canvas featuring the beautiful SpiegelMom Scraps Aquarius sequin mix. Recently, I went to Michaels with my girls and they were doing a drop in painting class where you purchased a canvas and they provided the paints. You could paint whatever you liked, so I decided to paint my favourite….Coffee!! I found a picture I liked on Pinterest and just hand sketched it onto my canvas, and then added some paint. It was fun, I didn’t overthink it, and I love how it turned out!

I love the oranges and blues in these sequins! I used Glossy Accents to adhere my sequins to the canvas, and the Silhouette PIck Me Up Tool made it quick and easy to add them. This sign makes me smile every time I look at it!

Here’s a look at the gorgeous colours and sequins in the Aquarius sequin mix! I love how it just adds the details to the canvas that makes it pop!

Here’s a look at what my girlies painted – and how the canvas looked before adding the fantastic Aquarius sequin mix! Amie painted a sunset, and Erica painted popsicles with ears – because who says popsicles can’t have ears??

Seahorse Canvas with Laura


Hi Chaps, Laura with you today to share a home decor piece and a process video.

#spiegelmomscraps #shimmerz #silhouettecameo #sequins @silhouetteamerica @shimmerzpaints

I’ve used a couple of the wonderful cut files – exclusive to SpiegelMom Scraps – and a whole bunch of sequins!  First I took a blank box frame canvas and spread a generous layer of Shimmerz Dazzlerz in both Barely Blue and Spun Sugar on with a palette knife.  I got the idea from fellow Sparkler Sara, I was inspired by this layout.

Following Sara’s technique I added sequins to the wet Dazzlerz paste and pushed them in slightly.  When dry I tapped off the excess sequins and popped them back in the packet for another project.  I used some from each of these mixes: Glass Slippers, Moonshine Delight, Silver Stardust, and A Mermaid’s Tale.

I coloured the seahorses and stuck them on top of the sequinned canvas.  I felt they needed something to ground them so I added a few waves from the cut file set too.

I adore how it turned out.  You can watch the process here…

And please let me know if you are inspired by Sara’s technique of sequins in Dazzlerz or try a canvas of your own.

Under His Wings Canvas with Laura


Hello Chaps!  Laura here to day sharing a mini canvas with you…

Mixed Media Mania

The canvas is around 10 cm square, so it’s quite a diddy little thing.  Perfect for sitting on a desk or bedside table.  It is packed with texture from the stencil work, the dimpled canvas, felt and sequins.


I pushed a thick layer of modelling paste through a stencil and then used water colour bars to add colour.  I hand wrote a Bible verse and cut each word out individually.  As it is stuck over the textured background it leaves lovely shadows adding depth to the piece.


I decorated with pink sequins and a gorgeous blue feather.  In all it took 25 minutes of work to make – it was done in 5 minute sessions with drying time in between.  Mixed media needn’t be big, messy, time consuming or scary!

I have used: Felt feathers and Believe in You sequins from SMS
