Smoothfoam and Clearsnap Art Panel...and a Blog Hop!

smoothfoam clearsnap craft attitude art panel lisa fulmer

I'm happy to take part in this blog hop - Smoothfoam is an awesome surface and Clearsnap makes terrific inks! 


I made this super quick and easy art panel with two colors from Ann Butler's ColorBox Crafters line of multi-surface pigment inks. I love distressing a surface with a few swipes of an ink pad, not only because it's a sweet shortcut for applying color, but also it just looks cool and organic to me. The inks accentuated the Smoothfoam sheet's texture nicely.
The Picasso quote is well-known and one of my favorites - it always makes me feel better. After letting the inks dry thoroughly and giving the sheet a once-over with the blow-dryer so the ink stays put, I formatted the quote in a nice font, printed it in reverse on a sheet of Craft Attitude inkjet film, and glued it down to the panel.

The Craft Attitude film blends in beautifully, you can only see it from the side when the light is shined on it. I wrapped the edge of the panel with green washi tape to finish it off. I love using Smoothfoam for art panels because it's so nice and lightweight.
