This is the final project from my recent "spree" of creativity! Here's another Studio 490 / Art Parts piece. I started with the large square frame and covered the base and the frame in coordinating paper (by Queen Bee). Sanded and inked the edges. I knew that I wanted to use the new "Become who you were meant to be" stamp so stamped that in black archival ink.... however.... should have waited until I did the background.... had to improvise. So I stamped the sentiment on a scrap and created a mask.
Then used Wendy's "perfect stamping" technique on the wheat/grass background stamp (Hero Arts) - basically, I inked the stamp with several colors of distress ink and then spritzed it with perfect pearl mist (heirloom gold), and then stamped onto the base of the project (over the mask of the sentiment).
Added a grungepaper butterfly, inked with bundled sage DI with a coat of rock candy distress stickles, and a tiny lock brad. Added some black hemp for the antennae.
I wanted the piece to have some dimension, so I "stole" some dried grasses/wheat from a dry arrangement in my studio - decor becomes art! Added the grasses to the base of the piece, and the stalk (?) of wheat to the frame. Used Art Glitter Glue - worked great.
Adhered the frame to the base using multi medium matte. And, finally, added the STARS art parts piece, covered with paper from the same stack by Queen Bee, to the edge of the bottom of the frame - I also used multi medium for this.
Hope you've enjoyed following along on my little surge of creative energy. Life is taking over for the next few days so nothing new to share for a little while. Hope everyone is having a great week - see you soon.
