Canvas with Dylusions ~ My First Video

Before I say a word about the project, I want to say thank you to all of you who have shared videos on your blogs and on YouTube in the past.  What a learning curve this was… I had no idea (none!) how time consuming it is and how much editing is required.  Next time I make one it will be much shorter and I’ll be wearing a good microphone.

Okay, now… on to the good stuff! I made this canvas for Eclectic Paperie using Dylusions Ink Sprays, one of my favorite Dina Wakley stamps, lots of stencils, inks, paint, washi tape, Prima flowers, and a few other goodies.

The video is free.

Kim is offering three different EP class kits to match the supplies I used in the video, so if you already have some of the supplies you can shop accordingly:

(1) Basic kit

(2) Basic + Inks

(3) Basic + Everything

As I said, it’s my first one, so please be kind. The screen went black for 15 seconds and I need to learn how to better control the mic.  But for free, it’s all right!

Thanks so much for visiting today. I really appreciate it.


Your comments are very much appreciated!


  1. fantastic points altogether, you just gained a new reader.
    What would you suggest in regards to your put up that you made some days ago?
    Any sure?

  2. Touche. Solid arguments. Keep up the great effort.

  3. Marjie, your video is wonderful. You sound clear and unlike me, I didn’t hear any “um” or “ahs” which is what I would do. Yes, I can only imagine how time consuming video editing is, considering how time consuming photo edits are.
    Wonderful video, you are a natural teacher!!!! The canvas is wonderful. I love that color combo and like you I always have card stock and tags to soak up excess paints. 🙂

  4. just watched your video~you’re a natural!! Learned alot. Thanks Marjie

  5. A fabulous canvas Marjie and a brilliant video tutorial. Loved watching you at work and hearing your explanations, not as good as jumping on a plane, but the next best thing methinks.
