LOVE Fairies – Home Decor

love 1

I finally got a chance to play around with the fabulous Creative Embellishments’ February Mixed Media Kit. I absolutely love everything that’s included! There are tons of fun bits like wood veneer mini tags, title pieces, flowers, acrylic words and hearts, metal embellishments, along with a full sized mist and embossing powder too! Be sure to check out the pic at the bottom of this post that shows everything that comes in the kit! 😀

Since I wanted to create a piece to go in my daughter’s bedroom, I decided to go with a fairy theme. She adores everything magical and mystical, especially fairies. 😀 To start out, I peeled of the protective layer that’s over the acrylic to keep it from getting scratched in transit, then used modeling paste and the stencil that comes with the kit and applied a thin layer to the back of the LOVE word piece. Once that dried, I used 2 different colors of Maya Gold metallic paint to coat the back of the Love piece and the base. I used a pink shade for the word and a purple for the base. Once that dried, I applied a Hematite shade to the edges of both pieces.  To alter my fairies (sold separately), I used PITT markers and coated the wings with a metallic blue Maya Gold paint. Then finished it off with flowers from my stash and the metal butterfly piece from the kit. Here’s how it turned out:

There are sooo many awesome goodies in the kit, I decided to make a tag to go with it. To create the tag, I used one of the precut chipboard tags as my base, blotted it with a light gesso, then stamped over it with the CE script stamp. I then added one of the chippy heart arrows, and 3 of the flowers from the kit, pearls from my stash and a flair button (sold separately) and added a large flower from my stash to anchor it. A bit of ribbon and it was done. How easy is that? 😀 Here’s how it turned out. Left is without a flash, the right is with a flash.

This final pic just shows how I dabbed the dark metallic gray on the edges of the piece to give it a bit more dimension. 😀

I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed making it! I also hope you check out the fabulous February Kit. After making both these pieces, I still have enough product left over for a layout and another tag or two!

Creative Embellishments/Heartfelt Creations team up!

I’m a huge fan of Heartfelt Creations’ products. I love their stamps and dies, but more than anything, I LOVE their gorgeous papers, so I was thrilled when I heard about the team up between two such amazing companies! I got to work with HFC’s Once Upon a Time Papersand Celebrate the Journey Papers. Since two other team members used Celebrate the Journey, I primarily used Once Upon a Time for my project along with a few scraps from other HFC papers I already had on hand. This is going to be photo heavy because it’s a paper bag mini album (my first!), using 3 full sized paper lunch bags.

For the cover, I also used these products by Creative Embellishments which I altered by using Smooch inks: Steampunk Timepiece from their 3 piece mini set, a Butterfly from their 3 piece set, Flourish 17 and Photo or Page Corners Set 2. Distressed edges on the papers are inked with Distress Ink and the trims are by Graphic 45 and My Mind’s Eye. I also used the other corner pieces from the set as holders for tags inside the album. :-D
