Hi! Jeanne here today! My theme today is Scrap Treasures: Create a card using the scraps left over from a previous project.
This is an easy one for me because I have lots of scraps! Many times when I’m making a mixed media project I use a full sheet of cardstock to play around on to try out different mediums. The results sometime work (and sometimes don’t) for the project that I’m working on but I often end up with some pretty scraps that work beautiful for other cards.
Here are a few homemade background papers from my stash.
I chose to use this piece for my project.
The original project was for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we were asked to brayer black paint onto white paper to create a “ghosty looking landscape.” Well, my landscape didn’t quite turn out as planned so I stenciled some and used gesso and gelatos over my ghosty shapes. If all else fails add some pretty colors!
Here is the original project.
For my project today I took another piece of the scrap and added it to a light blue card, cutting it 1/4 inch smaller than the card.
I then stamped my sentiment in black ink on another scrap.
I trimmed my sentiment and attached it to my card. I added a border around the sentiment with an artist pen and a scrap of black ribbon to finish the card.
Well, I wasn’t quite done with my scraps. I made a pretty little necklace with another piece by adding some raspberry gelatos to another piece. I added glue to a glass piece and placed it over the scrap paper. When it was dry, I trimmed it and popped it into a metal tray.
Hope you enjoyed my projects! Have a great day!
