I received it about 3 weeks ago and finally was able to get it unpacked and put out for sale.
Have you admired the subway style art on Pinterest ? The canvases with painted quotes ?
Well this product makes it easy for anyone to make them !!
Hazel & Ruby is a company that produces masks which are really just the opposite of stencils. They are a perfect companion to scrapbooking because the paper works wonderfully with them.
Here's what you do ...
1. Paint a canvas or mod podge paper on the canvas. I have some rolls of sweet paper from Hazel & Ruby but scrapbooking paper works well as well as book paper or wrapping paper. Let dry.
2. Choose the letters for your desired quote or word or the icons you want. Place them on the canvas. they cling beautifully.
3. Apply paint with a foam brush over the letters. Remove them carefully before the paint dries.
4. Place the letters back on the backing sheet and wipe off with a baby wipe or paper towel. Ready for next time
5. Let your masterpiece dry and start planning the next one ... lol.

*The masks are completely reusable so once you buy a set, you can use them over and over !
* It's fun to combine various fonts and letter sizes.
* You can also use them on furniture, glass, paper, all sorts of things !!

AND !! Here's the best part !! For now, I am selling them at the American suggested retail prices !! You would have to get a passport to get these prices !! lol 

How fun !!! Look at all those great alphabets and designs !!
I have a stack of canvases at home, all painted & podged, waiting to be turned into samples. Mayyyyyybe this week but definitely next week. And I hope to do a quick video as well.
But for now, here are a few samples from Hazel & Ruby as well as a video link showing the process ...
Enjoy !!

Hazel & Ruby tutorial ... fun & easy !!

Well, that's it for this week ! Be sure to drop in and see the new dies and check out Hazel & Ruby - so fun !! Who knows - I may have a few samples done !
