Happy Monday! I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful start to your week. The new autumn themed Sept Nesting Components kit was just release yesterday! If you missed the release, you can see it HERE. Dana Tatar shared a gorgeous fall banner that is a must see.
The new kit contains the beautiful rich colors of fall along with the Owl Panel stamp set.
So I was inspired to create an altered heart using upcycled materials from my
This beautiful piece started it's life as a chocolate Valentines Day box, a dresser handle and brown paper bag.
I'd been saving this box for two years! I always feel so great and less like a hoarder when I can use something that I've been saving for so long, lol. I also used a recycled brown paper bag.
I cut the paper bag into strips and adhered to the box with Modge Podge.
After I covered the whole box, I applied a thin layer of gesso. The gesso prevents the inks from seeping into the brown paper bag.
To create depth and texture, follow these steps:
1. Add a heart shaped layer of Lindy's Stamp Gang Fusible Webbing
2. Spray Lindy's Stamp Gang inks in the colors of your choice. I used Tawny Turquoise, Burnt Umber, Cocklebells Coral, Glory of the Seas Gold and Opal Sea Oats
3. Sprinkle embossing powder over the fusible webbing. I used Lindy's Golden Pumpkin Blush and the coarse black embossing powder from the kit plus Lindy's Desert Moon Turquoise from my stash.
4. Heat with your gun to melt/set embossing powder. The heat will also melt the fusible webbing creating folds and additional texture in your background.
I stamped the flowers from the Owl Panel onto the background and on white chipboard. I fussy cut and added the floral sprays to the inside using foam dots.
The image I used is from the clipart sheet included in the Sept kit. I also stamped the owl onto a leaf and used the sentiment from the Owl Panel stamp set.
I embellished the heart using the Prima floral sprays and leaves included in the kit. I also used a flower, artificial floral sprays and jewelry findings from my stash.
To finish off my piece, I used an old drawer handle that I secured with twine, cream colored fabric and the hand dyed ribbon from the kit.
