Welcome to the
Paris Flea Market kit from March
I hope you arrived here from
and left some love for her beautiful artwork.
Nowit is my turn.I was so lucky to have a great find
in the dollar stor. This wooden model for
a memo board project that I want to share with you:
You see it is totally ready to be altered.
And this is the result,but I am quite sure you
want to know how I came to the end result.
I started with taking a piece of black 12 x 12 inch paper
from the box and puth the bord on top and drwing aline
around it and cut out the shape with a knife and ruler.
Then I took the bottle of Club Scrap bookbinding glue and
added this to the woodboard and put the paper on top.
With a bottle of black soot acrylic distress paint
I painted the sides black.
Next cover the black paper with the pink design
paper that is cut 1/2 and inch shorter on all sides
and colored the border also with black sooth
distress paint. On top a piece of the gray design
border cut from the grey design paper.
Here you see the finished board with all
it's details and a noteblock in the middle.
Here you see how it looks form behind.
It is best to glue this piece in the holes,
otherwise it might drop out all the time.
A little more about the details.The bird is a die from
Tim Holtz that I used for cutting and I mixed and matched
the colors fromthe kit.The lovely birdcage charm came
with the kit. The tag on the right started being white and
I used a few different stamps from the unmounted rubber
stamps that also came with this kit. The pink circle I cut out
from another piece of white paper and added with foam
tape to the tag.
You also see the notepad decorated with a strip from the
cut aparts. A punched out flower (SU!) with a brad from
an older kit,but perfect here again! The word notes is
stamped with a clear alphabet from my stash,
On the left and right of the notepad I added some flowers
cut from the black design paper.
It is also a Tim Holtz die. The flower is fastned to the board
with a button that came also with the kit. The pink leaves
are cut with a Joy Craft die. Behind the notepad I added
aribbon fromthe kit before glueing the pad to the background.
Here another one of the tags fro the kit. First stamped
with the french UM rubber stamp and the corner is made
with the stencil that cae with the kit. I tiny pink pearl
from my stash completes this corner.
On the bottem right another bird with in the background
3 of the tiny tags from the kit. I stamped the word notes several
times and here decorated with more sticky pearls.
And here my scrappage for today.
I found this wonderful sketch that inspired me to use for
these wonderful pictures my DD took of the boys dressed
up for Easter.
It is from the
It had to be a masculine look,so I did not add the pink paper,
but with black,grey and white I think I did pretty well.
I used the TumHoltz bird and flower dies. Also more of the
tagsthat came with the kit. The added white floweris from my stash.
You see her printed "Pasen 2016" which is the Dutch
word for Easter. After printing I added it to one of the
tags and used a fleur the lis stamp from the UM stamps
around it as a border.
The birdcage is from the Tim
Holtz die and decoraed with a piece of paper lace inked
with black ink. The background is a complete
paper lace sheet that comes with the Paris Flea Market kit
and is so much fun to use in so many different ways.
I hope you looked at all the artwork from
the Artist Team technique challenge and saw all
the paper lace possibilities.If not, you can still do
so from HERE.
