Mosaic Madness

mosaicmadness

 

A fresh look at mosaics is the inspiration for some of Fran’s stamp designs from our October catalog.

With a few extra crafty supplies already in your stash, you can create a fun project, or two, or more! Watch Fran’s video for some fabulous ideas to get you started.

Our large selection of metal stencils is ideal to help you create a mosaic style background. Fran highlights Mosaic Swirls in the video to provide a tiled effect alongside Mosaic Bird and Mosaic Mushroom stamps. Here is Mosaic Swirls along with more Dreamweaver Stencils we think are great mosaic makers! Click on any caption to see more ideas from these fabulous products.

Our talented Design Team has been sharing their Mosaic Madness throughout the week. You won’t want to miss these great projects. Grab a comfy chair, a cup of your favorite beverage, and enjoy more inspiration from them! Be sure to leave them a nice comment if they put you in a mosaic mood!

This super popular product was one of the great innovations we released at #CHA2016! We love how we can use the simple pop-up construction in the center to make a pop up card out of just about anything! But the other Pop’cessories dies are just as exciting. Make boxes, placecards, stand up creations, and bobble/wobble projects with these innovative cutting dies. Check out Fran demonstrating this wonderful new product that has been one of the biggest hits of 2016.

Steam Pumpkin Gears Frame by Debbie Cole

We are adding painting to our Stencil Thursday post because well, we are still having a great time at the Heart of Ohio Tole painting convention. With all of our wonderful stencil we have from Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s metal stencils there are plenty to add accents to your painted projects.

Stencils can add wonderful texture in any of your painted decor pieces like Debbie Cole’s Steam Pumpkin Frame shown above. The gears in the background create a fabulous depth and mat the floating painted Steam Pumpkin image amazingly!
