Embellishments made with Mixed Media- Alice in Wonderland theme

Embellishments by Paints and Glitter!



Happy May!

This theme is still going! I made these embellishments to participate in a swap. It was my favorite part of this project, and I had tons of fun using items that I truly enjoy creating with. I knew that the images I was using were small, but they had the vintage look I really like, and they really inspired me to use vintage-style ephemera. So, I made my own!
I first stamped and altered the paper bags I decided to house the little embellishments. I used several stamp sets and Ranger Liquid pearls in Bronze, as well as Rub on roses.
This Hat stamp was perfect! I also used a white pen, and gold acrylic pen to make the images stand out.
For some of the tags, I added gold paint and glitter to make the images stand out. I backed these with photo paper.
To tie in the theme, I sent my partner an Alice in Wonderland necklace. I altered some Chip board to create matching packaging.

For this embellishment, I made a heart with Plaster of Paris, which I then painted in Gold and Pink. I stamped the image of Alice and the Flamingo on Chipboard, and painted it to match the paper I used for the chipboard in the background. I also added glitter, mulberry flowers, several small dies, a pink  button and -of course, pink feather trim!




Here is a closeup of rolled flowers I made with the paper collection, and other flowers I made using miniature playing cards.
For this embellishment, I used outdoor Vinyl to make a gold key, and made the hearts with plaster which I painted in Gold and black, and added black gems, and black papers to ground the images of Alice and the Rabbit. 
This image was stamped on a chipboard heart, I painted and sealed it, and backed it up with dies covered in Washi Tape. I finished it with a "fun" sentiment and rolled flowers. 
This small embellishment has Alice carrying the pig, and I used a small blue bow with a black gem, washi tape, and rolled flowers to keep with the theme. I used Heidi Swap papers as well as other collections throughout. 





My favorite embellishment also got a Rabbit image which I cut out using my Cricut Explore Air 2. I added glossy accents to areas to make him stand out. He is backed with Watercolor paper, that I hand-colored hearts onto. I also cut a heart out of DCWV fabric, and hand-wrote "Curious" as well as colored the edges to match. I made and painted the roses, to make them look like they had been painted Red, and also finished this piece with tulle and hot pink eyelash trim. 

I hope that this inspires you to create your own embellishments. Use what is in your stash of goodies!! I had so much fun creating all of these, that I had a hard time parting with them.
Thank you for going on this journey with me! I appreciate your comments and likes! If you prefer to see a video, here is a link:

Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
