Quietfire & Walnut Hollow Blog Hop - day 4 - Do what makes you happy



Hello everyone, Yvonne here today on day 4 of the Quietfire & Walnut Hollow bloghop.
We're pleased you're joining us for lots and lots of creative inspiration for combining Quietfire stamps and Walnut Hollow wood products.

 


I chose this mini Hinged sign (#40255) and Twirl & Enjoy (#6397) for my project.




I know the bare wood is lovely, but I decided to paint my hinged sign soft grey, using gesso with a drop of grey paint in it.
Then glued upon  a white  piece of cardstock and aged it with VintagePhoto Distress ink  and a blending tool.
Upon I placed a piece of patternd paper which I aged with distress ink and a distresser tool.
Then added the lace and ribbon.

 
The Quietfire text was stamped upon white cardstock using black Archival ink.
Then cut/embossed/stencilled some Spellbinders dies : Parasian Motifs (S5-035) and upon  Stately Circles (S4-388).
Use foam squares /tape to glue the circles upon the hinged sign.
The sign is finished of with lots of mulberry flowers, leaves and pearl stripes.

 
I have put this sign on my desk, just to remmind me how much fun my papercraft hobby is!

I chuckled when I saw your lovely easel. Your work is terrific! The reason I laughed is because I have some family and some friends for whom this would be a great gift. They, like me, need to slow down sometimes, laugh, and relax!

It wouldn't be hard to think of some encouragement for that! Thank you!!
