Hello friends! This is my Paper Whimsy Inspire Project for this week and I wanted to share it with you here.
This project was inspired by my Celtic roots and Genteel ladies of long ago…
Now sweetly lies old Ireland,
Emerald green beyond the foam,
Awakening sweet memories,
Calling the heart back home.
The creations went with a more Irish feel as I thought about the Emerald Isle – thus the gold gilding. You could always add a wee clover for a pinch of luck!
Paint cameos with gold craft paint. Dry brush Gold stickles on wings. Add images with matte gel medium. Apply stickles to outer edge of each oval. Dot stickles along scalloped edge of cameo. Glue crystal bling on each wing. Cut out collage faces and place on oval cameo using matte gel medium.
Paint wood 2 x 4 lumber scraps with beige craft paint. Cover blocks with dressmaker pattern tissue sheets using matte gel medium covering all the wood.
Add bits of lace in random areas on the block and old buttons. Cut out old book text (or words) and add to front of block.
Dry brush gold paint on block and over book text. Glue buttons and alterables on block with E6000 glue.
