Picture Perfect

It's a new month and time to try something new. Hi everyone! This is Jules of Paper Gems by Jules sharing a little something that came out of nowhere. I had a scrap piece of white paper in the size of a slimline front. I could have made a card front with it, but decides just to make a piece of mixed media.

I sprayed the background with some Distress Oxide Sprays that I had not used in forever. Sometimes, it's fun to pull those old crafty supplies out and dust them off to make something new! I added a little Tim Holtz Bubble stencil work using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink on opposite corners. Splattered the whole background with White Distress Spray Stain and edged the whole piece with white gesso. (At this point, my craft space is a total mess. Can you relate?)

Next, it's time to get a little coloring in. I stamped this super cool chick called Cierra Girl from the Angie Girls line and colored her in with Copics. I used white gel pen for her nails because I thought it would be cute. Next, I die cut a bunch of polaroid frames in black and white card stock. Another item that has been underused in my craft room. Now, time to put it all together.

I layered a bunch of the polaroid frames on the right side of the piece. Using black mini stapes, I adhered all of them except for the largest frame. I stamped the sentiment in the inside of one of the frames and then used foam tape to adhere the frame and the stamped inside. For some final touches, I used a clear sequins, navy crystals and black sequins sporadicly on the piece.

I encourage you to pull out a stamp set, grab some scrap and do something fun! Make something beautiful.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty weekend!
