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.

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

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”.

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.

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

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

Standard

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.

Spring Décor Wall Hangings

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share some holiday décor that’s not specifically Easter but inspired by Spring so it can be displayed and enjoyed all season long.

Spring Tags Polly's Paper Studio Petaloo

I created 4 while I had the supplies out. Each has a coordinating  Post Card Nest Collage image so they are similar…..but just slightly different.

I started with a base of burlap adhered to sturdy chipboard then layered on all the paper pretties!

I love these flowers in shades of white and green. So perfect for spring.

There are more flowers tucked under the paper layers for added depth.  Chipboard painted in crisp white breaks up the busy paper patterns and adds texture.

I’ve added pretty coordinating ribbons, a wire hanger, wooden clothespin, seasonal brad, and washi tape to finish off these charming and just a little bit vintagy wall hangings.

Dragonfly Wishes Home Décor Stand

Standard

Hey  Peeps! Let me just tell you that I have fallen for the Pentart Metallic Wax Paste.  Not only does it add a gorgeous detail to your creations…but it is also super easy to use. For my project today I’m upcycling a plaster frame stand that I sourced at a local discount store in the markdown section.

Dragonfly Wishes Home Decor Stand By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny Using Life In Color
Life In Color was the perfect pairing for this frame. It’s kinda “arty” so I think the mixed media supplies work so great with it.

This frame has a lovely base with additional raised areas to highlight with the wax. It’s also super heavy so there is no concern that it  might tip over.

To round out the arrangement there’s a bit of netting and twine bows. Last but not least metal gears in coordinating silver.

I took out the glass part of the frame so I could add the brick background pattern then adhere the following layers with foam spacers.  Bling is always a good for an well placed bit of sparkle. These coordinate really well so the don’t contrast with the background.

So many layers!!!! This definitely has a very dimensional look, and the wax paste does the trick in making them stand out nicely.

Here’s the process of finishing the frame….

I was able to cover it in with only 1 coat of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Graphite. Yay for 1 coat!!!! After allowing to dry I used my finger and a very light touch to add the wax to the raised areas.  Easy Peasy. So much beauty for so little work!!!

Okay that’s all for me today. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.

Retro Easter Wall Hanging

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  I was waiting impatiently for a delivery yesterday so to make the time go a bit faster I created a new Easter Collage sheet full of sweet retro inspired images on striped tags. I was so smitten with it I had to print one out right away and create a project.

It’s pretty adorable if I do say so myself.  I used a burlap banner shape from Canvas Corp for the background and layered on a wood grain pattern and a bright and cheerful yellow stripe to coordinate with the printed tag.

A garden of white and yellow flowers layered over cheese cloth and a die cut banner.

Sweet bunny tag printed and raised with spacers. This allows space for an eyelet and twine and a little yellow clip.  There’s a polka dot die cut with actual vintage buttons and additional tiny blooms.

This wall hanging is easy to display on the tinsel hanger topped off with chevron ribbon and twine bows with more buttons.

I just love finishing off the tag with some carefully placed Stickles to accent the details.
