Creating Faux Woodgrain for CCB April Challenge


Hello everyone!

It’s Friday and I wish a wonderful and creative weekend to you all!

Today, I would like to share a dt project I created for Canvas Corp Brands April Challenge, which is all about “Woodgrain”.


 It was only natural for me to get inspired by the woodgrain theme. Natural textures are my biggest love!


The other thing that intrigued me was the fact that I had never worked with Glimmer Mists before. Most of my art work is done with acrylic paints and I usually go for a vintage or grunge dead matte finish.

So the big challenge was to come up with a way to use the Glimmer Mists other than the usual and expected, that is to give a shimmery and shiny finish to a surface.

You can visit the Canvas Corp Brands blog to see more details about this project and enjoy a full process VIDEO TUTORIAL. Just follow this link: http://blog.canvascorpbrands.com/creating-faux-woodgrain-woodgrain-challenge/

You can browse the Blog to get inspiration by the other designers and find out how you can enter the challenge. Here’s the link to the challenge’s main page: http://blog.canvascorpbrands.com/april-challenge-woodgrain/


I really hope you enjoy the project and get some inspiration for your next creation. Come and play along at CCB Challenge and get the chance to be the next CCB Guest Designer!

Stay tuned for more projects are coming up!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time,

Be Brave, Be Who You Want to Be!
