Hi friends, in Sharma household last week was just a blur – both girls got the flu bug, and I wasn’t feeling my very best either and overall it was something I am hoping doesn’t happen again, at least not anytime soon at all :( But, we are all back to our regular life now, all recovered and of course, back to crafting :)
So today I decided to upcycle a wood sign I had picked up long time ago from Goodwill. It had a very manly quote with a lion picture on top and was quite worse for the wear. At some point, I had taken my black matte spray paint (linked below), dried it and it was just waiting for the next step. So, I finally did make that next step happen :)
My background was already all black. I trimmed a black and white striped paper to be just slightly smaller than the wood sign and adhered it using some strong red wonder tape.
I used the Mega Alphabet Dies – LVE from Altenew for this project and also the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics. This heart one, is an older die that is out of stock in most places. I will link to something similar below. For all these shapes I used a gold-yellow-red paper from ‘Color Washed’ 12×12 paper pad by Paper House. I also added 4 layers of chipboard for each shape to give it some dimension. I used multi medium matte to attach the stacks in each shape and finally attach the completed stack to the board itself.
For the flowers, I used Sizzix Tattered Florals die set designed by Tim Holtz along with the red, yellow and green felt from Cricut Felt Sampler Summer Sky. On the smallest layer in each flower, I sewed some tiny gold seed beads to create an interesting flower center. Then I assembled all the flowers and attached them to the sign using hot glue.
That’s it. I am not sure if this will be called as a mixed media project by the strict definition, but I did try to use multiple mediums, textures and material for this one. Hope you like it.
