Altered Box

Hi everyone! Melissa here with an altered box. The paper I used is so beautiful, it was hard for me to put anything on it.  The beach is one of my favorite places to be, so this theme is perfect for me.

2016-06-14 13.40.50  front

To make this covered wood box I first took the hardware off.  I adhered paper to the inside and outside with gel paste. I painted the hardware with gesso after putting it back on.  On top of the gesso I applied gold rub n buff with my finger, gold mica powder, and very lightly brushed on aqua metallic paint.

To make a surface to apply paint to, I applied mat modge podge with a cosmetic wedge sponge. I also thought the sealed paper would be easier to dust, for when it’s on the bookcase in my scraproom.

I painted on brown glimmery mist around the hardware,and drew on thick lines with a brown watercolor pencil. I softened the pencil with a wet brush.

2016-06-14 13.42.37 side

I left three sides of the box relatively plain, to allow the shoreline on the paper to be the main focus.

I used glossy accents to glue on shells, metal, micro beads, and pearls. I painted with brown,then turquoise shimmery mist on the front of the top.

I sprayed on the same colors of mist on gauze. After it was dry, I  put small pieces on the box,  sprayed with water, and using a straight pin drew the threads out to where I wanted them. I lightly applied glossy accents along the threads.

I put on a photo of a Black Crowned Night Heron that I took a while back. He’s a water bird, so he fits right in.

As a final step I patted on gold mica powder with my finger to random spots. This was to kind of tie together all the items.

I kept the color scheme simple.

I rubbed on gold mica powder with my finger on the edges of the box.

I’m sure I will enjoy looking at this on my bookcase for a long time.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Picture Frame

Hey there Paper House Fans!

Lisa here with you today to share a project I created using ColorWays Flamingo Collection. This is one of my favorite ColorWays collection! I created this frame to give to my daughter before she heads off to college this fall.

When I saw that I had to create an off the page project this month, I was a bit nervous, as I don’t do a lot of these. I had purchased a basic frame at Michaels about a year ago and decided this was the time to use it!

Here is what I came up with:

Paper House Frame

Believe Photo Frame Supplies:

Paper House Frame close up 1

I started by painting my frame using white acrylic paint. Then I cut my papers so that they looked matted. Then I added some stitching.

I created my clusters using items from my stash and some of the Paper House awesome Puffy Stickers! I popped the “She believed she could, so she did” Cardstock sticker on foam tape to give some dimension and to add in front of the flowers.

I just love this believe Puffy Sticker! This is actually what inspired the theme of my frame.

I love how this frame turned out and will trying a few more off the page projects soon!

 

Flamingo And Pineapples Banner

Hello friends! It’s Lee-Anne here today bringing you an off the page project.  I love banners and I thought this would be perfect for a summer beach party.  I thought flamingos and pineapples were a perfect addition to the banner to create a tropical feel.

Flamingo Banner Supply List

I chose two Silhouette cut files (Flamingo) and (Banner) and cut out 8 flamingo die cut shapes and 8 banner die cut shapes on my electronic die cutting machine.  I added one flamingo diecut to each banner.  Then I added two flamingo stickers and two pineapple stickers as shown. Next I added a butterfly puffy sticker to each banner shape and also a Primrose puffy sticker to each flamingo die cut shape.

IMG_2993

Once I had adhered all the stickers,  I added a pink polka dot strip of patterned paper to the top of each banner shape and then machine stitched around each banner shape to give more texture.  Finally I took a paper hole punch and punch two holes on the top corners of each banner shape and threaded it with a long piece of sheer ribbon.

I hope you are inspired to create a banner.  Have a lovely day!

Summer Birdhouse Decor

I just love Summer decor! I decided to make this beautiful birdhouse. This can be designed to your liking using any of Paper house Products.

Here I used the Atlantis 12” Cardstock Stickers around the Door opening. I also used the dragonflies in different spots and hung keys on the vine.

Here I used the puffy lady bugs stickers crawling up the side of the roof along with a few puffy butterflies as well.

The roof was done using a heart punch. The hearts were layered on top each other as a shingle effect using the Atlantis Door to Atlantis 12″ Colorways Scrapbook Paper.

This was a fun project to play with and its very eye catching around my home. Hope you give altering a try it can be addictive.

2016-06-01 16.34.55  june 1 top left

To make this page I first sponged on white gesso, to have a base for the paint to stick to. I stenciled on some texture paste, then sprayed with mist. I flicked on aqua shimmery paint with a paint brush.

I distressed the edges of papers and layered them. I put foam core board between them to add dimension. I put the photo on top and used double sided foam tape to attach it to the page.

To add texture and color I added gold mica powder, glass glitter, seed beads, micro beads, and glitter glue. I dry brushed some metallic paint over all the glitter and little beads. I added layers of pearl and aqua mica powder,and then some flowers and feathers.

Prom

Hello there Paper House Fans!  Lisa with you today to share a layout I created using Paper House goodies.  We had Prom last month at school. This was my daughters last high school dance, kind of bittersweet for both of us!

I combined the Flamingo and Noir ColorWays Collections for this fun page:

Prom

Prom layout supplies:

I started my layout out by placing the Noir paper on the Flamingo Palm Tree paper. Then I cut 4 of the cards and placed them on my page. I adore the gold frame and just had to use it! That was actually how this layout came about.

Prom close up 2

Check out this “Today was the best day” card! More black and gold yumminess!

Prom close up 3

I added some tangled thread, more black and gold accents from the Noir Accent Pack and some gold mist spatters.

Prom close up 4

I cut a few of the strips of papers from the Edgings and Trimmings Papers and added those to the right side of my page, using a punch on one of them. I added some black stitching to make it pop. How about that pretty pink butterfly? That is a sticker that I adhered to cardstock and then glued only the center of it so that the wings popped off the page.

Prom close up 5

I used a few of the accent pieces and popped them up with foam tape to give my layout some dimension.

I love the contrast of the Flamingo collection against the Noir collection with the pops of gold! It’s so stunning and perfect for these photos!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with us!

 

 

 

 

Bridesmaids

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout of my daughter’s wedding day and her beautiful bridesmaids.

Supplies Used For This Layout

I created the layout by using a diagonal design. I wanted to use several photos on my layout so I added some papers from the Flamingo Collection that I cut 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches and added some photos of the special day that I cut 2.25 inches by 2.25 inches.

IMG_2850

For my embellishments, I added some 3D stickers from the Sister 3D Stickers, Bridesmaid 3D Stickers and some puffy stickers from the Hummingbirds Puffy Stickers.
