Hello Creatives! Candy in your mixed media? Yes, please! Today Karen shares this adorable tag stamped with my lollypops Art Foamies stamp! What a better combination than Plaid, candy and mixed media? SO fun! Today Karen shares this project and another way to enter our big giveaway!
Do you feel nostalgia over old things? I was thinking about candy and those cute old fashioned stores when I drew these. When I was little we lived very close to Knotts Berry Farm in California, we visited often and our day of fun always culminated in stopping by the general store which had all types of old fashioned candies. When we had our own kids we took them there as well, my son in particular loved those big giant round suckers and now his little girl loves them too! I added the gum drop as when my oldest was little she often shared gum drops with my father in law, it was their special thing.
What Karen had to say about her project:
Hello Lovely Candy Tag by Karen Jiles
I’m in love with the Candy Artfoamie set and wanted to create a fun project using the stamps from the set. They are so cute and fun to use. The set includes a large swirl lollipop, a twisty lollipop and a sour drop. The lollipop set is perfect for creating backgrounds and focal images. I chose this set to play with because of its fun and summer appeal. The set coupled with the color choices just made it pop even more. Love it! I see a lot fun park and party projects in my future with the set.
The large Art Foamies stamps are perfect for any acrylic paint form Plaid! Karen chose Pinks and oranges but I could definately see a little Glitterific on top – eveything is better with glitter! And that being said make sure to leave Karen some love and enter our giveaway! You do not want to miss it look at these fabulous prizes for Plaid!
