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:
In the video you may see an additional envelope and small spoon I altered and forgot to take pictures of. Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
