August's First Joy of Crafting Show

Lots of fun crafts are featured on August's first Joy of Crafting show. We start off with a contest announcement!

"Mini Masterpiece" is a contest where you embellish a 4" x 4" stretched canvas! You can paint it, make a collage or mixed media piece, whatever you feel like! You be the artist! Just turn your Mini Masterpiece entry in at any of the Ben Franklin Crafts stores by Monday, August 22. Check stores for official rules.

Need some inspiration for your Mini Masterpiece? Well, our first guest, Puna from Enchanted Lake BFC, shows us how to do some collaging on the canvas and also a wonderful finishing technique. Watch and learn some great tips, too!

Next, we have a Hana Hou visit with Brandon, also from Enchanted Lake BFC. He shows us how to use the YuDu. It's really great to be able to screen your own designs on T-shirts, tote bags and other items. Especially great for creating unique Back-to-School gear or uniforms for your soccer team!

Lastly, I'm starting to plan ahead. I'll help you get started on making some easy gift card holders. Christmas will be here before you know it!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all are having a great weekend!
