Art Parts Binder - Page 2

Hello again....

Continuing along on the art parts binder journey.... if you'd like to see the binder itself, click HERE.  If you missed page 1 (front and back), click HERE.

As with the other pages, the base is chipboard covered with Crowded Attic paper, reinforcers at the binder ring holes, and tissue tape wrapped around the edges....

Here is page 2 (front):

This time I chose wild plum and butterscotch color wash sprays.  Then I glued a piece of the new Graphic 45 tissue paper over the background and tore the edges so it would be inside the frame of the page.  White washed over that, and then dripped dimensional pearls (watered down on the craft sheet)  down the length of the page.  Gives a nice accent and just a hint of shimmer.

Added the new mini bird cage mover & shaper die, painted with mushroom paint dabber and highlighted with a touch of white paint.  Added the ball chain with art glitter glue, which is quickly becoming my "go-to" glue.  It dries clear, sets quickly, and it's really strong! 

And, what's a bird cage with a bird?  Added the mini bird and mini branch, also mover & shaper dies. Painted the bird white and the branch with espresso paint dabber.  There was a little something stuck to the bird before I painted it and, happy accident, it's perfectly placed to look like the eye!  

Added the ornate bookplate (whitewashed) and adage ticket (coated with rock candy crackle paint). Love the aged look of the white washed metal - very shabby chic!

And... here's the back of page 2:

Meadow, red pepper, butterscotch color wash sprays. Then used the splotchy stamp with white paint dabber over the background.  No drippage this time!

This is one of my favorites... I've been wanting to use the new kraft glassine paper, and this was the perfect opportunity. 

I cut two sheets with the tattered floral die, crumpled the flowers up, and layered the two larger flowers together, and then the two smaller flowers together (all with art glitter glue), added an accoutrement button from Tim to the large flower, and a Maya Road resin flower to the small flower.

The "stems" came from my hydrangea in the garden - last year's woody stems... I now have a collection of them in a vase in my studio.... Added some link chain and a token as if it was hanging from the flowers.

Hope you're enjoying following along with the binder pages - I'll be back tomorrow with page 3!

Have a great Monday!
