I just love autumn because of all the warm rich colors. Fall and Halloween are also my absolute favorite seasons/holidays to create for so I was really looking forward to this hop. I enjoy finding hidden treasures at thrift shops, flea markets, garage and estate sales and lately I have found a ton of things to work with like the base of this month's project.
To create this piece, I used the Sept. Nesting Components kit, new Dragonfly Fairy stamp set & Crowns stamp set, Everyone Needs stamp set, Leaf Cling Stamp set and the Build A Shrine stamp set.
This is the base before I started to alter it. I knew this would make a gorgeous shrine :D
I covered the base with gesso and added a scrap piece of chicken wire. At this point I decided it would be easier to use spray primer so I took it outside and sprayed the whole thing.
I painted the shrine with a light coat of Golden Fluid Acrylic in Burnt Umber then sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang in Burt Umber Moon Shadow Mist and Glory of the Seas Gold Starburst.
The image I used is from the clipart sheet in Sept Nesting Components kit and I added a little crown from the new Crowns stamp set. I created a chipboard frame using the Build A Shine set. I stamped the Dragonfly Fairy twice on book text and the wings out to create flowers. I attached the wings to wooden dowels so they would stand easily.
I used the Everyone Needs stamp set for my sentiment and attached it directly to the metal frame.
This sentiment is included in the new Dragonfly Fairy stamp set and the beautiful bronze sunflower is one of my flea market finds.
I tucked in a copper embossed leaf from the Leaf Cling Stamp set behind the artificial flowers.
I hope I've inspired you to get creative with this beautiful assortment of Paper Wings Productions products!! Stop by the online store to see what treasure you can find!! Make sure to head on over to Shay's Blog Next!!
