Something Fun for my Scrap Room
One of the projects I did last week allowed me to get my hands messy – more than usual that is! A long time ago I purchased a couple of simple wooded initials from Michael’s with the intention of covering them with paper and hanging them in my scrap room. But they have languished in a plastic bag … until last week!
I forgot to take a picture of what it looked like initially (pun intended!!) but just try to picture it as a plain wooden letter A with a white painted finish.
Got that image in your head?
Great, because NOW it looks like this …
There are two layers of paper on this but you can only see the top layer. When I first started I was kind of just playing so really didn’t know where things would end up. I figured a base of some First Edition Specialty DSP would be a good base to build on. Then I ended up covering it all up with one of the patterns from Comfort Cafe DSP. The sides still show the First Edition paper – under the ribbon.
As decoration I cut out lots of butterflies using my Beautiful Butterflies Die for the Bigshot. The antennae are made out of a small piece of black floss (from my stash) hot glued into place. A couple of rhinestones finish them off.
I used phrases that match my crafting philosophy.
A word about the ribbon. The dark orange colour in the paper is Cajun Craze – a wonderful deep brownish-orange (a close match to my wall colour – see below) but I did not have any ribbon in this colour. What’s a perfectionist girl to do? Take some simple white grosgrain ribbon from her stash and rub it all over with Cajun Craze ink of course! Note to self: wait several hours before tying and gluing it down so the ink has sufficient time to dry!!
Here it is on my wall. A temporary position to be sure but I love how it compliments the paint colour. I have many ideas percolating on how I can change my Scrap room/Office around so once that happens I’ll move it to a more prominent spot and show you pictures.
