I had fun creating another off-the-page project for Scrappingville. It is sort of random thoughts on my life in general. Most of the items I used were every day objects i.e mismatched metal clips, measuring tapes (from sewing kit), fabric scraps, pattern paper scraps and wooden beads.
The squares are just slightly bigger than the typical 'inchies', so enough room for embellies :). I used pattern papers, cloths, tissue papers (decoupaged) and fabric tapes to cover the chipboard squares. I also used pieces of mica sheets, which was neat. They are transparent and can be peeled off quite easily.
Here are some of the close-up shots of these squares;
Start looking around the house for some treasures :). With some imaginations (and love, of course) and a little upcycle work, you would create a keepsake trendy enough as wall decor.
I will be teaching how to make this wall hanging (from scratch) at Scrappingville store this July. Come join us if you're in town and have some spare time for creating art :).
Till then, see you soon.
