Top Hats and Moustaches! - SASPC

Hi Crafters (:o)

If you have been reading my post yesterday, you'll notice my actual addiction 
Today i've finished my second shadow box and it fits the current challenge theme at SASPC







Step by Step


I started by priming the box and frame ( Artemio 15 cm x 15 cm ) with DecoArt Media Gesso White followed by DecoArt Media Modeling Paste and a stencil



Next steps are painting the box and frame with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey Value 6  and when dry, applied DecoArt Americana Decor Crackle Medium on top


When the Crackle Medium was touch dry, i've painted DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titan Buff on top


Next up..some stamping....with LaBlanche stamps and Archival Ink Black


Lasercut chipboards, gessoed, stamped and clear heat embossed
You can also see some rusted fabric in the background which was stamped with Archival Ink, too



Fernli Designs Wood Gears painted with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Silver



I hope you enjoyed
6 days left for you to enter the challenge

Paper Tote

Hello my crafty friends (:o)

Yes, i'm a girl with an affections for bags, purses, tote bags, clutch or however you call it.

Here's a small range i've created in the past






Two weeks ago, i found a nice tutorial for a paper tote on Delia's blog, a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator
Her tutorial is so easy to follow ( measuring also in inch)
I've already created three paper tote


The first tote was my prototype and i used *Mechanical Illusions* by ScrapBerry's


 Front
 Back

I used LaBlanche Design Paper for the second tote

 Front
Back

 The third  bag is made with Kraft Tex Paper Fabric White
I've created an Laserprint - image transfer with DecoArt Matte Medium on the front and back
I also stamped on the back with StazOn black and DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Gold

Just in case you're hooked with this style as i am, here's another inspiration by Dalia
and a tote bag by Betty's Creations

Happy crafting!!
