The Frugal Crafter – Lindsay Weirich…
Lindsay’s channel is easy-going and chocked full of knowledge and information. Lindsay has an outgoing personality that allows her to come across as friendly and helpful. She has an extensive background and her teaching style is easy to follow. I’ve learned so much from Lindsay’s channel and always look forward to the next published video.
The videos on her channel are a mixture including watercolor, cardmaking, art journaling, jewelry making and so much more. I actually started watercoloring after watching several of Lindsay’s watercolor tutorials.
In addition to her tutorials, Lindsay presents a show called Ask A Crafter once a week. Viewers are given an opportunity to ask Lindsay crafting questions and she answers them during the show. This is one show I never miss because the questions and answers are so informative!!
If you haven’t visited The Frugal Crafter’s You Tube Channel, you must give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!!!
Completed another canvas project. Applied Faber-Castell Gelatos to the 6 x 6 canvas to create the background. Then I used modeling paste through a dotted stencil. Once the modeling paste dried, I used a dark Gelato to tint the dots. The flowers and butterfly are a Stampendous stamp set called Lovely Garden. I watercolored the flowers, leaves, and butterfly. I created the flower pot and watercolored it also.
Colored this Gorjuss stamp from Docrafts with Copic markers.
Colored this Gorjuss stamp from Docrafts in Prismacolor colored pencils.
Bev’s daughter, Wendy, asked me to create a dragonfly in Bev’s memory. It was my honor to work on this piece! I have to thank the Frugal Crafter (Lindsay Weirch) for supplying the beautiful digital stamp of the dragonfly. It is part of her digital collection called Winged Things. I actually followed a tutorial by Lindsay to color the dragonfly with Prismacolor colored pencils.
Adhered a pretty napkin to a canvas with matte multi-medium. Colored the flowers and butterfly with Silks acrylic glaze. Added a bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella brush pen. Finally applied Inka-Gold to the edges of the canvas.
Created a new canvas piece using Tim Holtz idea-ology Tissue Wrap. Drew the flower and inked it with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. Colored the butterfly and flower with Dylusions Sprays used in the form of watercolor.
The stamped image is from Some Odd Girl. I watercolored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and used Ranger’s Perfect Pearls mixed with water.
The background for this mixed-media canvas was done with Faber-Castell Gelatos. Art Impressions Chicken Wire was lightly stamped on the background with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. Modeling paste was applied to the canvas through The Crafter’s Workshop, Balzer Designs Mini Tiny Circles stencil.
The butterflies were cut out of 140 lb. Strathmore watercolor paper with an EK Success Butterfly punch. The coloring of the butterflies was done with Derwent Inktense pencils and a mixture of water and Ranger Perfect Pearls.
This canvas was inspired by a Jill Foster You Tube video.
Another beautiful Elizabeth Crafts Peel-Off Sticker. Watercolored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
