Fabric Flowers necklace tutorial with Papericious

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last July post made for Papericious blog.
Irit from Irit Shalom's Designs is here today and 
this time I was asked  to make a tutorial using Papericious most gorgeous fabric flowers from the last release.
So as all of us already made Mixed Media pieces and scrapbooking layouts and cards with these flowers I decided to make an altered necklace and it's a real wearable art piece.




And as always I made a small (really small this time) tutorial how to create this necklace.

1. Paint a few pieces of Papericious chipboard with Papericious Black Heavy gesso and let them dry.




2.Use proper adhesive and add black and gold embossing powder over the black painted chipboards.
I used the old products that I have in my stash, but any embossing powder adhesive (clear inks etc) and any mix of black and gold powders will do the job.



3.Mist the fabric Papericious flowers with black mist and let them dry.


4.Add Papericious Crystal Clear powder using Glossy Accents over the black flowers.


5. Arrange the necklace using the heat embossed chipboard pieces, misted and white flowers and some Papericious lace and gold jewelry findings from your stash.
To be sure that this piece is wearable I added a thick layer of clear resin over the back of painted and heat embossed chipboards.This step takes a lot of time because of the very long drying time, but it's totally " must to do" step if you leave in the hot country like mine.


And another look at the finished necklace:




Hope you liked my small and easy tutorial and would try this project by your own.

Christmas in July with Topflight stamps shop

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit  is here today and I am going to share my Christmas in July inspiration for Topflifht Stamps shop.
Let's begin from two odd things first.
How can we even think about making Winter and Holidays  projects with this hell heat outside?
But actually we all do. Lots of sites  show Christmas releases and projects right now.
 So we, on our Topflight Stamps shop site, do just the same. It make the outside hell less hot, for me at least.
Second important odd thing is that I am Jewish and we don't even celebrate Christmas, also we do celebrate New Year and Winter season.
But for me Christmas is all about my childhood. I was born in Ukraine and moved to Israel when I was about 15, so I still remember and adore all Holiday symbols, colors and tastes and I really love to craft for my friends and part of my family.
And finally here is my Christmas in July card for you to see.


As you can see it's a layered scene made with one single stamp set- IndigoBlu " Looks like rain, dear" red rubber stamps set.
 For my card I used the small stamps from the set, all five of them.
Some were stamped directly on the cardstock and some were stamped and hand cut and then glued over the card.
The sentiment spot was stamped, die cut and added on the corner.


As you can see I used 4 waved dies (just non branded cheap ones) to make the snow landscape.
I used  acrylic paint to make the blue background and added " snow effect" with white pearled 3d paint.


I hope that you liked my Winter inspiration today and next week I am going to share the totally different project made with the very same stamp set.
And as for now- run to the shop and see the largest in USA selection of non USA artistic stamps and  the best ever Holiday section.
If I made my very first Holiday project you  should think about it too.
And if you want to visit my blog and to see more of my work- you are mostly welcome!

July Media post with BoBunny: Wings altered wooden board



 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Mixed Media canvas made for BoBunny using BoBunny and Pentart products with Serendipity paper collection.
I loved the encouragement sentiment from the cardstock and decided to make the whole art piece according ton this sentiment.
So this is not about birds at all. This is about courage and decisions and ability to fly even if your wings are a bit broken.

Papericious Azaealian collection inspiration: Wedding Mixed Media layout


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Papericious inspiration .
This is Irit from Irit Shalom Designs here today and I am going to show you my new wedding layout made with most gorgeous modern and graphic Azaealian new collection.



This is my dear daughter wedding photo from last September and it was made in black and white.
So for this photo  blues and a bit of yellow gold were added to make it shine, but still the photo is the main issue of this project.
Backround cardstock was covered with some small stencils with texture paste and then painted with  white gesso, so the black is seen as grey now.
More splashes were made with another stencil under the photo.



I hand cut  cardstock patterns such as triangles and waved strips and added them vertically over the page.
 Chipboards and paper cut " story" were used to make the visual triangle around the photos.
Each chipboard was painted with black gesso only.
And as the last move to connect the all elements I made the crackle paste frame over the photo and when dry misted the whole page with yellow and light blue sprays.

Summer Holiday Fun card with Topflight stamps

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is Irit here today and I am going to share my Summer Holiday Fun Mixed Media card.
One of the great things of Topflight Stamps shop are the full themed sets from different around the world stamp companies.
And when our topic is Summer/Sea/Nature some of the best are Rubber Dance stamp sets.


This is a set I used for my Mixed Media Nautical card: Retro Beach stamp set
To make this card I used not less than 9 stamps from this set and they connect in the most perfect way to make any Nautical project.


Rubber Dance - Retro Beach Stamp Set


The background lower layer was stamped with the nest stamp all around. I used white embossing powder and them painted the embossed image with emboss resist technique to get the outer frame for my card.
The inner " post card" was stamped with black embossing powder and the main image was colored with distress markers.


The background around the main stamped image was painted with a mix of blue paints and then some stencilled dots were added with clear/ gold texture paint. Some misted splashes were the last color touch for the card.


Small sea cratures were stamped and them hand cut to make the corner embellishments cluster on the right.
Three stamped hand cut words made the left corner sentiment.


As you can see no embellishments were used to make this card, but stamped image and mediums. I only added the twine piece to connect the corners to the anchoir.

I hope that you liked my Nautical project and you can see more of my work in my own blog HERE.
Thanks for being here with me today and see you in a week with something totally different.
 I enter this card to some web challenges:
 Rubber Dance- use twine, ribbon etc
