Vintage Valentine Wall Hanging with Video

Standard

Hello there friends! Happy Sunday to all of you. I’m so thrilled to say now that it’s officially February I can throw myself into Valentine projects with reckless abandon.

For today’s project I created a very vintagy inspired wall hanging…..

 

Isn’t it just loverly? So many layers!!!!!!

I’ve layered the chipboard.
I’ve even layered the bows.
And topped it all off with layered flowers.
But not even I am expert enough to layer pearls : (
Won’t you join me for a video tutorial on how I created this project……

Standard

Hey there Chrsitmas Peeps! I’m sharing a very sweet and shabby chic inspired Christmas wall hanging using Carousel Christmas from BoBunny. Not gonna lie..I kinda love it!

I just think Carousel Christmas is the dreamiest holiday collection.

I started this project thinking I wanted to create a shadow box styled ornament with painted mason jar lid…but before I knew it I had a wall hanging in front of me.

The lid is finished with a coat of Gesso then filled in with festive images and accented with faux snow for a frosty look.

Additional images are fussy cut and layered on with spacers for nice dimension. I’ve added a tinsel hanger and coordinating bows to hang.

The chipboard snowflakes are also finished with the Gesso then top coated with Glitter paste….because every shabby chic wall hanging needs pink sparkly snowflakes.

You can see the dimension I was able to get by adhering the elements with foam spacers between the layers. There’s a bit of the die cut doily peeking out here and I think it adds texture as well as a visual break from the patterned papers.

Happy Halloween

Standard

Happy Halloween to my Peeps! Hope you all are looking forward to a fun filled day with lots of laughter and good times…and of course candy!!!!  We live out in the country and never have any trick-or-treators so it’s pretty low key here….maybe dinner and a movie. Also we have no candy…which is very sad : (

I’m just dropping in to share a festive Halloween card I whipped up that has handcrafted flowers and a great little holiday die cut.

Spooky Halloween Decor

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m having a spooky good time creating Halloween decor with my GSL chippies! I’m sharing a project today that started out as an exploding box (coming soon)….but took a turn for the better and became a really fun 3d holiday decor piece. I can just see this sitting on a mantle or shelf as part of a vintagy vingnette.

Spooky Halloween Holiday Decor

All of the most fabulous Halloweeny things all in one place!

Who doesn’t want a spiderweb filled trophy in their holiday decor?

I used the Exploding Box to create a sturdy base.

The layered on all the fun and festive embellies.

Finished on all sides it’s fabby from any angle.

I coated the box in Flat Black Gesso.

Then added layers of patterned papers.

The square side panels made it super easy to measure and cut the papers for the base. I finished the edges with black ink.

Even just by itself the base is really cute…..this mix of patterns is so vintagy!

Bringing in some embellishments to build up the height.

This spiderweb String Along is too tall : (

So I clipped it and re-attached it so all the great detail would sit just on top of the trophy. I painted it black…but missed the picture.

A little embossing powder heat set to finish these chippies and I was ready to assemble.

Happy 4th of July Wall Hanging

Standard

Happy 1st of the month peeps! Just dropping in to share my first project with the new Patriotic Assortment Ribbon Club Selection.

 

This will be perfect for all the summer holiday projects! Great solids with fun and festive patterns!
I created a wall hanging just because I was in the mood to make extra bows lol.

Stars and stripes are my favorite Americana themed patterns. I die cut the base and added layers of 110 lb cardstock to ensure that it would be nice and sturdy.

The focal image is a digital tag from my shop Patriotic Tags Collage. It’s got a metal eyelet with thick twine pulled through and glass glitter stars peeking out from behind.

Coordinating flowers are layered in with Spiral Stamens and a large chipboard sentiment.

The crisp white paper doily works great to break up the busy patterns.

Isn’t this bow fabulous??? There’s a solid taffeta with the satin quatrefoil on top then twine and last but not least an epoxy patterned brad.

Petaloo Flowers~ Darjeeling Blue Anenomes.
Okay that’s all for me. I can’t wait to get more projects started with this ribbon club selection….and get my house all decked out for the summer holidays : ) G

Spring Bird House Shadow Box

Standard

Hey Peeps I’m dropping in to share a sweet little shadow box that I created with charming little bird houses and loads of spring flowers.

Spring Bird House Shadow Box

Spring  Birdhouse Shadow Box Polly's paper Studio 01

This stand alone shadow box would look just perfect with an Easter bunny but can be displayed all season long as it’s not too ” Eastery”.

Spring  Birdhouse Shadow Box Polly's paper Studio 02

This little chipboard shadow box is deep enough to adhere the birdhouses inside at different depths for a nice dimensional look. I’ve painted it in a gorgeous spring green  to show off the flourishes and birdhouses.

Spring  Birdhouse Shadow Box Polly's paper Studio 03

I’ve selected blooms in bright cheerful colors and created a nice balance by adding some to the top and bottom of the shadowbox.

Spring  Birdhouse Shadow Box Polly's paper Studio 05

I’ve chosen a nice selection of pinks, green and white flowers and tucked in some speckled eggs. The birdhouse in the back also has a sweet little nest to welcome birds and make them feel at home.

To add a bit of softness to the hard edge of the roof line I incorporated some cheesecloth. It also helps to fill in the arrangement.

Okay that’s all for me. Whishing you all a happy and productive day.

A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

Well Helllloooooo there Peeps!  It’s my day to share the project I created for the Petaloo~Creative Embellishments Blog Hop.  My inspiration is a proper English tea complete with tea pot, gorgeous flowers and altered chippies.

I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.

I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect.  They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.

There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.

I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green.  This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.

I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.
