Hello, my dear stamping friends! Today is Friday and it means my
This week I made a wall deco.
This is a kind of a project I make a lot: pretty simple collage piece, made on a clear mini album page. I usually add the background paper from the back side and leave a bit of clear space untouched. For this project I used Prima 15*15 cm. pad (6*6'') and no solid cardstock at all.
The chipboard octagon piece is from Tando Creative UK, so is my Music chipboard. Both of them were covered in a different way. The frame was covered with White crackled Ranger paint and then with some distressed inks over it. The music piece was black painted and covered with Glossy Accents. (All mediums so far are Ranger)
Now for stamping part of this piece.
The script part from Men's Collage stamp was stamped with Frosty White Clearsnap ink over the black patterned paper and heat embossed with Wow Embossing Powders White.
Inspire sentiment from Imagine- Dream- Inspire set was stamped with Stampin' Up permanent ink inside the lower part of the frame.
3 heat embossed butterflies were stamped using Large Butterfly stamp over the same leftover papers and heat embossed with Pastel Pink, Pastel Blue and White powders and then hand cut. This is a most adorable stamp that can be used as I used it here of for a great background.
Collaging was pretty easy: I added some lace, an old cameo charm, a ribbon hanging and then those 3 Tim Holtz stickers to make my statement and the actual piece title.
Life is a magic. Discover it. Play its music. Live it free as butterflies. Cherish the old. Inspire your life of creation. Use Visible Image stamps to do it as I did.
And some tips:
Use Glossy Accents or a very similar glue to adhere paper on the backside of acrylic plate. Also even so you can still see some marks, it's the least possible marks ever.
When you glue cutout pieces use better glue then 3d foam dots. I made three butterflies, but I lost one in my photo process and never found it again. Also 2 butterflies are great, but they all need a better glue after all.
Stamp over your patterned paper, the colors will be seen and it's even lovely.
Think STATEMENT when you do an altered project. Don't just add things because they are pretty. Connect them with some theme or quote. On this piece the major word was Inspire: so add everything that inspires you, like music, nature, books, vintage, but not too much of each. Some script, one vintage piece, one nature items, not everything that you keep in your craft room.
