Easy Home Decor With DIY Project Pads

sara-circle-2

Hello Hello! I have a photo tutorial for you today showing how to create an easy home decor piece..so easy, in fact, that my 11-year-old son did most of the creating! Here is the finished piece..

 

IMG_3837

Supplies Used-  Feathers Project Pad

Step 1 and  2 – Paint a canvas (any size you like) with a thick, messy coat of heavy white acrylic paint…you want some texture…the more the better! After drying, apply random feathers from the project pad to the canvas, using a removable adhesive (oh, and choose designs you are less likely to want/need for another project)

Steps 3 and 4 – Spray your creation with a heavy coat of gold spray ink so it settles in all the cracks and crannies…leave to dry for at least 24 hours or until completely dry. Remove the feathers to reveal a negative image. Build your home decor piece from there, using more feathers, craft fun foam, and any other little notions you would like. thread, buttons, twine…anything to add interest and texture.

Finish by applying an appropriate quote, saying, or words of your choice. I chose to cut my scripture from black cardstock with my Silhouette but the options for this are endless!

Another great use for his project pad are clean and simple cards…Paired with some stamps, mist, ink, or sewing notions from your craft room can create a striking card in a snap…these two took me 10 min. including drying time!

Home Decor With Project Pads

Sara Circle 2

Hello Hello! I hope you are all surviving your Monday! To help ward off the blahs, I have a home decor piece to share with you I created using t Project Pads and Clear Cuts Stickers!

IMG_0076

Supplies Used– Hearts Project PadButterflies Project Pad , Bohemian- Friends Clear Stickers

IMG_0065

With so many colors in the project pads, it made it very easy to find colors to coordinate with my decor. My dining room is designed around one of Monet’s Water Lilies painting and, yep, its painted purple….which makes this frame a wonderful addition to the room, and I have the perfect spot to hang it! I also loved adding the clear stickers for tails for some of my butterflies, gold accents, and some pops of teal (also in my dining room!)

IMG_0068

Thank you so much for joining me today! And be sure to get one (or two) of these project pads…I promise you will find lots of uses for them!

Have A Lovely Day!

National Scrapbook Day – Hour Three – Giveaway

Hour 3: Happy National Scrapbook Day!  Today we are celebrating all things Scrapbooking related!  Each hour we will be sharing a new post with some inspiration combining Paper House products and our designer’s favorite techniques!

Of course we can’t have a celebration without a giveaway or two!  Stay tuned at the end of the post to find out what we’re giving away!  Now let’s hear from Sara!
——————————————————————————————

Sara Circle 2Hello Hello! I hope your NSD has been filled with scrappy fun! My favorite technique to share with you today is one that is artsy without being too messy and with out warping the paper! I call it the framing technique and it uses some Distress Ink…but only two colors! I paired my technique with elements from the Paradise Found collection of products. But before we get to that here’s a little about me:

What’s your favorite type of paper crafting? Scrapbook Layouts..its what I started creating first and its always what I love best!
Where do you go for inspiration? So many places!! I think the two biggest are Pinterest and You Tube..but I also really love the gallery at A Cherry On Top
Where do you do your crafting? Currently I scrapbook in our office/school room of our house. Until, recently, I had a dedicated room, but we needed it to serve as my youngest bedroom. I dont miss it a whole lot, just when I need to do a voiceover or edit a video
What are your favorite crafting tools? A good pair of sharp, detail scissors.
What are your favorite Paper House products? OH, those puffy stickers!!!
What are your favorite colors to work with? shades of aqua, minty colors
How would you describe your crafting style? I think I am pretty traditional, I like to create pages with good balance, and color, and I like design principles.
Do you like it quiet while you work or do you have music or tv on? I like quiet but I rarely get it… I usually have conversation and kiddos swirling around me.
What’s your go to snack/drink while you craft? Bottled water, hot tea…and maybe some chocolate.
