This weeks challenge at SweetSassyDiva nearly had me sitting on the sidelines 'cause I'm not a scrapper.... I know, I know, how can that be??? I love making cards and other paper crafts, but I leave the scrapbooking to my daughters! But Bobbi Jo took pity on me and is allowing me to follow the Scene It challenge in my own way. So I decided to make a wall hanging.
The base for this is a wooden plaque that I bought years ago from the Dollar Spot at Target. I put it on the shelf in the closet and pretty much forgot about it. Until this weekend when I decided to use it for this project.
I started out by covering it with a pale blue, layering it with the rolling hills, house, tree, fence and grass.
The tree is a stamp from Stampin Up that I cut out. The hearts are from a Stampin Up Punch
I popped the birds up with dimensionals and added some white gel pen dots.
I sponged the edges of the grass and the hills and did black stitching on the fence.
After seeing these pictures, I think I am going to be adding some stickles and glitter and maybe some glossy accents... It looks a bit to plain to me :)
House ~ Pop Up Neighborhood ~ 4 inches
Fence ~ Pop Up Neighborhood ~ 1.6 inches
Rolling Hills ~ Pop Up Neighborhood ~ 4 inches
Grass ~ Paper Trimmings ~ 2.5 inches
Birds ~ Holiday Cakes 1.5 inches.
All paper is from Stampin Up
So, do you have something put away that would make a good background for a scene using some of your favorite Cricut cartridges??? If you are a scrapper, then jump in with a one or 2 page 12 x 12 layout. But if you are layout challenged, like I am, then find something to cover with a scene of your choice. When you are finished, I hope you will put a link to your creation in the comment section so we can stop buy and check it out !
A always... thanks for stopping by :)
