From time to time we like to invite one of our followers to be a Guest Designer for a month and in September our Challenge prize was to be our Guest Designer in December. Nadia Cannizzo was our winner and today we want to introduce you to this great source of inspiration. Please join us in welcoming Nadia to the Canvas Corp Brands blog. Every month the Crew hosts a different challenge that everyone is welcome to enter and have a chance for prizes, gift cards and even the opportunity to be a guest designer. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook or join us in our Facebook Group the Canvas Corp Brands Collective for all the details and new challenges.
Hi! I am Nadia from Sydney, Australia. Wife, mother, primary school teacher, lover of movies, cooking and paper crafting. I desire nothing more in life than health for myself and the people I love, peace and tranquility and lots and lots of alone time. Find me here http://samnadia.blogspot.com.au/
CCB: How would you describe your design style?
Nadia: Mixed media with a splash of romantic
CCB: How long have you been creating?
Nadia: About 8 years
CCB: What is your go to product right now?
Nadia: Mists and acrylic paints, flowers, metal embellishments
CCB: Do you have a signature touch you like to include in all your pieces?
Nadia: Yes, some kind of texture via gauze, threads, masking tape etc
We asked Nadia to send us a mood board with the colors, designs and style that she was drawn to most right now and we put a box of goodies together and here is her first creation. This special mixed media card is filled with textures, layers and so many wonderful details. Of course we love that she used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and the Canvas Corp Farmhouse Collection. Both were a nice match for her holiday style this season.
Once you choose a color story, gathering or creating pieces that follow that story will tie your card, layout or creative project together. Even the simplest touches such as the pearls just show off so well.
Don’t be afraid to layer, layer, layer with like colors, patters and many different textures.
The mists and paints transform the papers into works of art that make the paper your own. Distress them, ink them, color them, ombre them and then create.
When creating this season, start with your creative inspiration and then begin to create using your colors, themes and styles and you will love the results.
Stay tuned for more holiday inspiration from Nadia!!
