Posts Tagged ‘lace’

Way back when it was spring, I was planning on submitting a piece for Somerset Studio’s ‘winter’ theme. I started creating this paper that I was going to use as a background for….something.

I wasn’t able complete the background paper, let alone the project itself, in time to submit it. As a matter of fact, I only just finished my background paper within the last couple weeks.

So here it is….

I wanted to create a spare but layered look using black, white, and ivory as my palette. I started with a piece of watercolor paper, and sprinkled some coffee on it to start (gets rid of that blank white paper staring back at me). Next came pieces of paper I tore from a pamphlet from Opera Philadelphia, which was ivory, black, and grey, with a little red. After that I added layer upon layer upon layer of paint (Liquitex Basics), stamping (using found stamps like corks, pencil erasers, and small plastic lids), pretty tape (Tim Holtz), glitter glue (Tim Holtz), German scrap, and lace. Lots of layers. I think I got a little carried away….

I had always intended for this background paper to be cut into smaller pieces, so I added the German scrap and lace with that in mind.

Here are a couple pictures…these show the paper I tore from the Opera Philadelphia pamphlet:

I’ve now decided to make an accordion book, which I have never done before. For years now I’ve wanted to make a project incorporating some of the lines from Tori Amos’ song Winter. I thought that would be fitting with this paper and its original intention.

So that is my current project. At least the one that I am focusing on, since I have at least five other projects started!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like this inchie a lot. I cut a piece of decorative paper for the background and glued on a piece of black lace. Stickles glitter glue adds the necessary sparkle. Very simple!

I have a cute story to share. My art&craft area is in the backroom, which is also where I keep a chair which holds all of my clothes that need to be ironed. I walked by the chair yesterday and noticed my sweatjacket had something strange all over it. Upon closer inspection I realized it was….Glimmer Mist! I think it was the antique brass color. I’m going to wash it; I don’t know if the Glimmer Mist will come off. If it doesn’t it’s no big deal – I’ll just be extra sparkly when I wear my jacket! Thankfully there wasn’t any on my clothes. Note to self: be careful when wielding a bottle of Glimmer Mist!

Toodles!
