The kit this month is over-the-top GORGEOUS!!! The warm browns mixed with the light blues and a hint of teal are just phenomenal to work with. This kit works spectacularly with sepia photos and antiqued photos. Here is the sketch this month provided by Beggahuna

Here's my take on the sketch.

If you have never worked with paper soft by Viva...you are in for a real treat. The image is so crisp and clean and bold with no bleeding or smudging. It's wonderful

Here you can also see the Viva modeling cream that was included in this month's add on. I can't say enough positive things about it. The fleur-de-lis in the upper corder and rose in the lower corner are the mod melts included in this month's tech kit. This month the education team videos will be showcasing how make, work with, and color these wonderful little creatures by Mod Podge.

Speaking of which...here are a couple of canvases that I've made using the mod melts as multi-media pieces. 


On this canvas, before adding color, I mixed seed beads in with the Viva modeling cream (which came in this month's add on) and smeared the beads all over the canvas. Once dry I applied my color beginning with spray and later with the silks. This is the result. The beads created the striations in the cream by dragging them through! I loved the result.




Here is a closeup of a couple of the mod melts with the color applied. Don't you love how they blend and work together?

This canvas you can see in my step by step video. the layers and steps are exactly the same for these 2 canvases. 

Here is a closeup of some of the mod melts colored with silks glazes and rubbed with the Inka Gold by Viva in copper.


Here is the step by step so you can make your very own canvas too!
