November is here, and Frugal Scrappin' is right around the corner...on November 18th, we will complete an awesome 3 month project. Whoo hoo! I can't wait to see all of the awesome student projects:) We're up to 15 awesomely creative students now. LIFE IS GOOD in this Frugal Scrapper's world...
I've finally had a chance to finish the last two "tags" that will complete our "12 Tags of Christmas" canvas project...now I'm sure you've noticed that our "tags" are actually ATC sized individual projects, all using TH products/techniques. This will make an AWESOME wall hanging, perfect for gift giving or home decorating just in time for the holiday season.
Here are the last "2" "tags". The first tag is actually acting as the front of a "door" and is attached to a mini 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" canvas with hinges made using TH grunge paper.
The background is a combination of papers/techniques from a previous class so that we could utilize some of the left over paper and also give the project some flow between each tag.
I've covered the grunge paper with silver paint via a silver paint dabber. While the paint was still wet, I pressed the hinge into some vintage photo distress powder. I've found that the paint dabbers are a great substitute for embossing ink when trying to obtain a random grungy feel with the embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder and then went back over with a little more silver paint until I got the result I was looking for.
Then I added a bit of silver stickles for some extra shine. I repeated this same technique on the keyhole. Both the hinge and the key hole are part of the TH alterations "hardware findings" from Sizzix.
