Crafters Corner

Hey Tape-ies!

Let’s get inspiring. This is no ordinary blog. Here at Crafters Corner we primarily focus on How to’s, DIY’s, crafts, art pieces, tips & tricks, etc. all using the “tape on” or “tape off” concept: tape is either used as a marking/masking only tool and removed from final design or present for design/function/assembly.

At Crafters Corner anyone can be a crafter--a maker, a Do-IT yourselfer. We want to inspire the “un-crafty”, the last minute planner, the family, the office, the teacher, the community, etc., because crafting is not limited to any one audience. So say…YES I CAN! At Crafters Corner you can express yourself freely; feedback and comments are encouraged! So come on everyone! What are you waiting for? Embrace your creative side. We’ve made it easy to be a “crafter”!

How to think outside the box when approaching a mixed media art piece

What is mixed media? Where do I find my inspiration? How did all the layers of tape happen?

I stretched a 36×40 canvas and stared at its blank white surface for over a year. I had the vision of an abstracted antique airplane for my son’s room. There was just one problem however, I didn’t know anything about airplanes. I took out some reference books from my local library and dug up some of my husbands’ old airplane books but that wasn’t enough. Researching, learning and building a story is what’s great about the process of art. While doing my research, I was really drawn to the vintage looking green, navy, and copper colors of the old propeller planes. It wasn’t until a visit to a local antique store that I really started to see my vision come to life. When I found some very old LIFE® magazines along with some other older books, I began to read through the stories and text about pilots, aircrafts, war and Americana.
