|Embellishments by Paints and Glitter!|
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.
|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.|
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.
