So I should be in an autumnal state of mind right? And I was and I made this wall hanging to celebrate! I had a fine time yesterday playing with my Mini Tattered Leaves die, stampin' and spongin' and sprayin'. My fingers were so inky and here is the result (sorry this is so small, give the photo a click or two to bring it up close). Our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner, brought to us by Meihsia Liu, is to make a round card with a fall theme. This is actually a round wall hanging. I bought a round chipboard album at Michael's ultra cheap. It had about 5 of these 6" round chipboard pieces and every once in awhile I make a wall hanging with one. The covered bridge and the "simple" stamps are from The Old Grist Mill, an Artistic Outpost set that I am now carrying in TFJ boutique. I stamped it in Coffee archival onto a pice of vanilla CS, cut it out with deckle edge scissors and sponged it with Vintage Photo DI. The flowers were all handmade with various "tattered" dies - Tattered Forals, Mini Tattered Florals and the Tattered Flowers decorative strip die. They were cut from apricot CS and then sponged with either Wild Honey or Marigold DI. Then I spritzed them with water, wrinkled them up, unfurled them, dried them with my heat gun and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo DI. Then some were spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist in Cappuccino and some with Biscotti. The leaves were done pretty much the same way, but stamped on too and not hit with the Perfect Pearls mist.
The gathered kraft edging is the kraft paper twist from my boutique. I cut about 1" sections, unfurled it and glued them end to end. It took about 20 all glued together to make a strip. Then I ran a basting stitch along one edge and cut the other edge with pinking sheers. Once gathered, I glued it to the back side and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo DI.
That's about it. Let me know if you have questions. Most of the supplies can be purchased at my Funkie Junkie Boutique - just click the thumbnail. And don't forget, all my Ranger products are always 20% below MSRP and this week the seasonal Sizzix dies and Texture Fades are another 15% off - such a deal, but quantities are limited so shop early!
