VIDEO TUTORIAL: Vintage Dress Canvas Using Maja Design Papers & Dusty Attic Chipboard!

I get some really lovely comments and emails from you sweet ladies out there and one of the things I hear is that you'd like to be a fly on the wall while I'm creating a project!  Well, you'd have to be a very patient fly because my projects can sometimes take a while! lol!  But I also know that I really like watching these 'watch the process' videos, so I thought I would create another canvas, this time using the gorgeous Maja Design collection called 'Ska Vi ta en Fika' and some Dusty Attic chipboard pieces.  I just love this paper collection, here is a little peek at it if you haven't seen it yet...
So without further ado, here is my video tutorial for my Vintage Dress Canvas!  Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy!

 
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!  Here are a few close-ups in closer detail. 
   
 
I'd love to hear what you all thought of the video and also what sorts of tutorials you would like to see in the future on my blog.....I love getting your feedback!  Would you like to get your hands on some gorgeous new Maja Design collection papers?  Be sure to stop by my blog on March 1st, I've got an exciting announcement for you all!!

Karen Otterbacher said...

Gabrielle, how would I ever learn if I didn't have people like you to teach and inspire me?!! :) lol
Honestly though, aside from taking classes (that this workin' girl doesn't have time for...) I learn from tutorials and demo's like this~
Demo's give me the info & help I need. (and ideas! yes~)
Seeing the finished product -it is BEAUTIFUL; but intimidating:j Watching you step by step shows me how I can create something of my own! Thank you for taking the time to educate and INSPIRE!
(I sooo want some of these beautiful pprs :) ~Karen

I really enjoyed this video Gabrielle. It's always a learning experience to get to see the actual construction of a project. I love the effect you get with your scribbling and writing around the images. Beautiful!

And the oscar goes to both the video and the talented Gaby! Amazing project! I adore that 3 hearts and doodling. Just love watching you tear papers (it always scare me to death doing it!) and you do it perfectly (must learn this bravery and confidence from you)...oh Gaby, tfs. I love it so much! Didn't even waste a second of my time watching!
Hugs and smiles,
