I began by cutting some ivory card stock 4 1/2 x 5 1/2. I found some paper that a friend had sent me in a RAK so I finally used it!! I love hoarding papers and thought to myself that I really should use it because I think that these papers that I love and want to hoard, I can use them and share with you all how you can make these beautiful papers can end up gorgeous creations!!
So the paper I used were a couple from the Prima Bella Rouge collection! I loved the vintage, dark reds, grays, just to name a few in this collection.
I wanted to use the beautiful dark red flowers from Secret Garden Crafts. I will list what I used from the online store down below at the end of my blog.
I began by distressing the papers, then used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges. I tore in half the paper that was going to be on top. I put one half on the top of the base and the other half at the bottom. I then picked out a chevron stencil I had in my stash, not sure the brand of it. I used some modeling paste from DecoArts on the stencil. I then used some Lindy's spray and some Deco Art Black shimmer and white shimmer sprays on in, I didn't spray it, just splattered on it.
I then had some thread that I had received in a mixed media kit that I had previously purchased. I made a small bundle in the center in between those two papers I had torn. I then embossed a chipboard flourish with Lindy's black powder. I then cut it in half and placed one on top of the thread and the other half on bottom.
I then began adding the flowers from my DT package. I lastly added an embossed chipboard sentiment "Create" , in the center of the flowers, on top of the thread.
- I loved making this and I hope you like it too! Thanks again for checking out my post and hope you are inspired by it! xoxo, Jeanne
