Welcome to Friday with Friends where we LOVE to show how Canvas Corp Brand products work well with other products.
Today we have Crew Member Juli Ondrush. She will show us how Canvas Corp printed papers and Seth Apter/The Altered Page
Baked Textures are a WONDERFUL match! Join us as Juli shows you how she put her BEAUTIFUL tags together.
In Juli’s Words
I love the style of Seth Apter’s art and when I saw he had a set of embossing powders, I could not wait to get my hands on them!!
I picked my 2 favorites to use on this gift tag. The contrast of the vintage distress from the Baked Texture powders
against the crispness of the black and white papers is simply stunning. These beautifully colored embossing powders
paired with wonderfully thick Canvas Corp papers is the recipe for perfect art.

I decided on my sentiment and cut it from a piece of Canvas Corp 12×12 Garden Sayings. I also cut out a small butterfly and dragonfly to use as charms. In the end, I did not attach the charms. The tag did not need them. They will have to wait for the next project!
I colored the tag with some gorgeous Tattered Angel mists and paints. I dipped a brush into the bottles and painted exactly where I wanted the color to go to avoid any overspray.
I gathered all the products needed to heat emboss. After rubbing Versamark over the entire surface, I generously sprinkled the inked pieces with the Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture. The picture shows how rough and grainy it looks before heating. The picture of the kraft butterfly shows how only one side was melted for comparison. I repeated inking/sprinkling/melting 3 times to get a smooth covered surface.
I decided to use the Black & White check paper for the tag base. After cutting it out, I roughly ran the bottom and top edge over the Versamark Ink pad. Then sprinkled on the Patina Oxide Baked Texture and heat set it. It is so pretty!! I also cut a square of paper and embossed it with the Patina Oxide to make a hole reinforcer.
I finished the tag by gluing the sentiment to a piece of Mistable paper, then gluing it to the checked tag base. I added some metal brad embellishments and a ribbon. It’s ready to give as a gift tag!
I really like how it turned out, so I ended up making some more!!
