Tombow USA Blog Hop with Clearsnap

Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Clearsnap Blog Hop! For this hop we got together products that were made for each other: Tombow Adhesives and Clearsnap Foils! I bet you want to join in the Foil trend so in this hop we will show easy, affordable and fun ways to do it, so stick with us for the next two days!
  
You probably got here from Jennifer's blog but if you stumbled across my blog go the Tombow USA Blog to start!

For my project I made a mixed media mini canvas inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night. This is a great project if you want to try Mixed Media but you hate messy projects. You can also do something like this with your kids! I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens to color the canvas. I applied Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue where I wanted highlights and used Clearsnap Designer Foils
Just apply the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue where you want to use Clearsnap Designer Foils and let it dry for a few minutes before rubbing the foil (with the shiny part facing up) on top of the canvas. Use one color at a time. I started with the Gold, then added more glue and used Lagoon and finally Winter Frost. 
I used the Tombow Mono Twin Permanent Marker to doodle the Moon and the canvas. To glue the moon on the canvas I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.
Watch how I made it! Super easy!
