February Challenge 123 Step-by-Step

February Challenge 123 Step-by-Step

Challenge
1. Colour - Cream
2. Word - About
3. Technique/Theme/ - Upcycling

Materials List:
Chipboard background
Book page
Surgical Gauze
Potpourri Flowers
Doilie
Macramé Belt
Crochet Cotton
Spray Mist
Vintage button
Paint
Gel pen

For this particular layout I’ve chosen to use the above listed non-traditional scrapbooking projects.

To start I created the background using the chip board, book page and paint. I first adhered the book page using a glue stick and then scraped some cream paint randomly over this, using a piece of scrap card






I then dried it using the heat gun.

To further embellish the layout I used some surgical gauze, parts of a macramé belt, flower from a vintage doilie, and dried potpourri flowers.

To begin I coloured the gauze using a cream coloured spray mist, and dried it quickly using a heat gun. This way it dries stiff and makes it easy to adhere with the glue stick, and then tease, fray and shape as required.

This was dried with a heat gun before being adhere to the layout using a glue stick.

The potpourri flowers have been adhered using a quick clear drying gel glue.



To create the stems and centres of the flower embellishments I have cut down the tassels from the macramé belt and adhered them using quick clear drying gel glue.



I have also used a flower cut from a vintage doilie to use as a centre for one of the flowers

To create the title I have used one of the macramé belt tassels to create the letter A.

Here are some close up shots of the final project.





Well I do hope you enjoy this months challenge. A big big thank you to Charmane and the team for having me on board I so so chuffed.

Cheers Louise xxx
