Susan K. Weckesser + UmWow Studio Event - Day 4


Hello Friends!! Welcome to the SUMMER BLOG HOP between UmWowStudio and Susan K Weckesser Inc. We'll be sharing gorgeous bright and shining inspiration with you from both teams all week long. Be sure to keep visiting, hopping and commenting to enter to win one of TWO prize packages. Each day is chock full of goodness and we don't want you to miss a thing.


Hi! Dana here today sharing a 6x6 canvas that I created for the Susan K. Weckesser and UmWow Studio partnership event. The UmWow Studio Light Bulb Mask inspired this bright piece.


I applied a thin layer of light molding paste over the Light Bulb Mask and then topped it with one of my husband's old guitar amp tubes. I love using them for funky light bulbs. I highlighted some of the light rays with Clearsnap Sundance Smooch. I cut the colorful letters from the Susan K. Weckesser Live, Love, Create Patterned Paper.


I colored UmWow Studio Layered Circles Chipboard with ink and then used them separately, rather than layered, to pair with the colored circles that I cut from the Susan K. Weckesser Color Burst Patterned Paper.


I stamped around the edge of the canvas with the Susan K. Weckesser A Little Bit Washi Stamp Set. I used the bottom piece of an UmWow Studio Layered Banner Chipboard as a corner accent above.

I finished the canvas with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges, a light coat of white mist and some hand-dyed ribbon.

Here is the lineup for the week.  Again, don’t forget to leave a comment each day to be entered to win one of TWO surprise prize packages! We will pick winners after July 27 and announce on both Susan K Weckesser and UmWowStudio blogs.





Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. REALLY COOL canvas Dana!!!
    LOVE IT ALL, from the old amp tube funky light bulb and its clever inclusion into the title, to the cheery colours, chippies and pretty paper fussy cutting, finished off perfectly with the ruffled ribbon - they combine together to create such a CHEERY piece that will make everyone feel HAPPY when they look at it hanging on your wall :)
    THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!
