Unfragmented Printer's tray

Hello! I'm going to share my take on the 7 Gypsies Printer's tray. I adore these kind of vintage scented items. I already seen many different trays but I wanted to make it in a new way and I decided that instead to keep the sections different and fragmented I wanted to connect them with a common pattern. I worked fragmently to achive the final ideas as a integral whole. Here it is.....



I started with the Freanch Script paper from Canvas Corp for the base. I covered with some white acrylic here and there and distressed it. For the central heart I used a thick paper from Tattered Angels - Mistable paper Cotton cream and obtained the shape using the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK - Frame, Heart w/Crown. I stamped the central part with the 7Gypsies stamp and distressed it as well. I also add my very loved black glow on the background. I added several touches from Canvas Cosrp like the metal hardware, theword from CC paper and the chipboard alphabet from / Gypsies. IN the end the message is clear: search for real. authentic, pure and original.




I have a tip: the easyest way to cut perfect parts to cover the background is to ink the tray and simply put on the paper to get the print and voila!! Piece of cake!

I hope you like my unfragmented printer's tray!

Shine LO

Another Lo to post. Here is the latest idea, based on the philosophy that you can express yourself in many different ways and they don't need to be conventional. Beauty is something to search and to make confortable for yourself. You don't need to follow the rules but you have to follow your heart....
The title is: There are many ways to shine, find your own...

The base is a Tattered Angels mistable paper - Crushed cotton. I made the rays with the Masking Fluid. I sprayed the centre with the Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels: Graphite was the right choice. I  cleaned the rays and used the French Script Canveas Corp paper to cut out the flower with the Sizzix Bigz XL Die - Jumbo Tattered Florals and used the biggest flower for the background of the photo.



I added several stitches....


I made the banner from another mistable paper - Brushed Cotton- Cream.

 


 I hope you found your own way to shine too. Have a great day!

A pinch of dreams

Hello! Here is my latest LO using Mistable papers from Tattered Angels. They are great for playing with mists and searching new patterns. Here is the LO:

The base is a Tattered Angels Cotton Cream Mistable paper. I sprinkled it with masking fluid to make the nightsky. I covered the whole paper with Glimmer mists: Graphite, Acqua, Dragonfly,... After the paper was dry I removed the masking fluid and stamped across the edge with a 7 Gypsies stamp.


I cut a circle out of a Canvas Corp French Script paper to represent the moon. Than I created a banner shaped piece out of the Tattered Angels Mistable Paper Satin and also added the Apothecary Label from 7 Gypsies that says "pinch".



The stars are also cut-outs  of the Tattered Angels Mistable Paper Satin using the Sizzix Bigz Die - Stacked Stars. I gave to the stars even more personality with the Tattered Angels High Imapct Paint  Platinum and Antique Gold and with the Nori color of Glimmer Glaze.
 I added various 7 Gypsies metal embellishments like the corners that I used for the stars background and the gears. My necessary print are the broken buttons.



I hope you like the LO. See you next time!
