It’s a new month and time to try something new. Hi everyone! This is Jules of Paper Gems by Jules sharing a little something that came out of nowhere. I had a scrap piece of white paper in the size of a slimline front. I could have made a card front with it, but decides just to make a piece of mixed media.
I sprayed the background with some Distress Oxide Sprays that I had not used in forever. Sometimes, it’s fun to pull those old crafty supplies out and dust them off to make something new! I added a little stencil work on opposite corners. Splattered the whole background with White Distress Paint and edged the whole piece with white gesso. (At this point, my craft space is a total mess. Can you relate?)
Next, it’s time to get a little coloring in. I stamped this super cool chick called Cierra Girl from the Angie Girls line and colored her in with Copics. I used white gel pen for her nails because I thought it would be cute. Next, I die cut a bunch of polaroid frames in black and white card stock. Another item that has been underused in my craft room. Now, time to put it all together.
I layered a bunch of the polaroid frames on the right side of the piece. Using black mini stapes, I adhered all of them except for the largest frame. I stamped the sentiment in the inside of one of the frames and then used foam tape to adhere the frame and the stamped inside. For some final touches, I used a clear sequins, navy crystals and black sequins sporadicly on the piece.
I encourage you to pull out a stamp set, grab some scrap and do something fun! Make something beautiful.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty weekend!
