Good morning, Steph here with wall decor that can be created in any theme you want. Using G&P Embossing Powders and Glastique along with some Card Decor elements, you can create an extraordinary wall hanging.
A local store was running a sale recently and I was able to pick up a bunch of wood letters for pennies. While some of the letters leave me wondering what to do with them, this "T" worked out perfectly as a travel-themed wall hanging.
The letter measures approximately 10 inches high and 1/2 inch wide.
- Card Decor Set No. 9
- Enchanted Aubergine Embossing Powder
- Brownstone Embossing Powder
- Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive
- heat tool
Live, Laugh, Scrap
I began by selecting the papers I wanted to use. After cutting, tearing, inking and distressing, I added them to the letter using Glastique as an adhesive.
After checking out all my elements I chose to use the larger piece from Card Decor 9 as a focal point at the top. I applied Enchanted Aubergine as the first layer and then I then applied a second layer of Brownstone Embossing Powder in some spots to create a mottled look.
I love the different look I was able to achieve by mixing these two colors.
Using the swirls from Card Decor 9, I added two coats of Enchanted Aubergine. Once cooled, I added a light coat of Glastique to make the swirls a little more pliable. I also used Glastique as an adhesive to hold the swirls in place.
To complete this project, I punched two circle layers and added letters on top, then added Glastique to the circles to create faux acrylic letters. Love the effect this created.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Great little collage piece!
