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.

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.

Dream Hot Air Balloon All Occasion Greeting Card

Well hello there Peeps! I had myself a good ol time working on this card getting totally overboard with the chippies and embellies. Sometime that little voice inside my hais says “more more more” I have tried to reign that voice in…but not today!

Bee Home Decor Plaque w/ tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m rustling up some home décor today for my project inspired by my love of bees.  Our neighbor is a beekeeper so we get to enjoy lots of them in our flowering trees. Also my very good friend is also a beekeeper and provides us with gorgeous fresh honey : )

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s how I prepared the chippies…

All these fabby elements will be wiped with a cloth to prepare them for finishing.

Some of the pieces have been finished in patterned papers. Some have been inked black and some have been heat embossed.

A variety of embossing was done in metallic shades and the bee was just colored with a Spectrum Noir marker.

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.

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.

Beautiful Clock All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  So you know how when you have elements of a project come together just right?  Don’t you love when that happens?  When I created this project I was inspired by the clock chipboard embellishment. I checked out some digis from my shop and low and behold the clock image with the gorgeous vintage rose fit perfectly. I mean it was like meant to be!!!

With the chipboard and image picked out I gathered flowers with the same peachy pink tones and fairly neutral background papers.

I’ve just been working on a major reorganization of my shop and I just cleaned up all the ribbons so I knew right away that I had this shade.

Since the layout turned out to be a bit bottoms heavy I added some metal keys, another flower and leaf, and twine to anchor it with a vintage button.

Additional chippies add texture as well as embossing the center section.

Live In A Dream World ICAD

Standard

Hey there Peeps! So let me tell you I have been bitten by the ICAD bug. I’m creating a mixed media inspired index card every day to enjoy some fun crafty time and to expand my skills working with mixed media supplies.  This card was inspired by the gorgeous Dreamcatcher  with feathers and a thoughtful quote….Live in a Dream World.

So this index card is a standard 3 x 5 inches.  I gave it a generous coat of Mod Podge then applied a text printed background tissue paper. Next a layer of Gesso to knock back the pattern. Gelato’s create the bright colors and very blended background.
The Dreamcatcher chippie is creating a nice balance on the corners.
I chose the sentiment to tie into the chippie….the dream world in the Dreamcatcher. Keeping the feathers white brightens up the arrangement.
I selected the chippies and gave them a basecoat of flat white acrylic paint. Next I added Gelato’s with the center remaining white and the colors getting darker as it goes out. Using a small text stamp I detailed the lighter sections with a random pressing of the stamp.
I clipped the hoop into two sections adding one to the top and one to the bottom. Tombo Multi was a great adhesive to attach the thinner sections.
After attaching the feathers I decided to top them off with a few little flowers that were finished with more Gelato’s and a water brush. Adding a tiny brad to the center is last but not least.
I’ll be adding this card to my collection of ICAD and maybe even do a little journaling to the backs.

Shabby Chic Spring & Easter Decor

Standard

Happy Tuesday Peeps! I’m always so cheered up to see a bit of spring after a long cold winter. I’m not a gardener…..but we live in the country and I do enjoy seeing the farmers tilling up their fields and the animals spending more time out of their barns. My projects for today have springy flowers and little sweet bunnies.

I’m using the Vintage Easter Bunny Ticket Digital Collage Sheet from my shop for the inspiration. These are available for instant download so you can create some Easter themed décor too!

Spring Wall Hangings Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio

I used 2 bunny tag images from the same collage sheet and created a wall hanging and tag.

Because I was hoping for a country chic look I used the stitched burlap trim to create poofy bows and used sturdy wire to create a hanger.

The paper has a wood grain pattern and it’s used to create a base as well as a tiny envelope to tuck the tag into.

Loads of flowers mixed in with lace, die cut doilies, and altered chipboard.

Ribbon trim and twine help to anchor the arrangement and Prills, pearly headed pins and epoxy embellishments fill it in.

This tag is full of country charm with the checkered background and burlap flowers.

Vintage buttons, butterflies, and clip are simple  but add quite a lot of detail.

This arrangement is the perfect combination of soft muted colors and textures.  There’s a bit of twine and berries tucked in and a generous length of lace and washi tape.
