Hello Crafty Friends! Today I am sharing my "Off the Page- Mixed Media" project for BoBunny!
I'm on the BoBunny Blog today with with the other talented BB designers. Don't miss out on the inspiration- check it here.
I LOVE printers trays. Every since I was young I have been intrigued by boxes with compartments. As a lover of Primitive Decorating in my home I have had many a printers tray filled with little treasures hanging on my walls. I've always love dollhouses and miniature collectibles so creating one for crafting purposes is not a far stretch for me. Combine that with my love of sewing and you have a printers tray fit for any seamstress in your life!
The Pincushion collection was perfect for this tray and you can find my supply list below.
I coated all the edges of my box in something called "Stencil Paste" you can find it in any craft store. I like the texture of it. It's different than modeling paste- a little lighter. After it dried I went over it again in some areas with a stencil to give it some raised bumps. I coated it all in several different color paints afterward to give a patina to it.
I used Tim Holtz dress form here and misted some cheesecloth to use for her dress. My favorite- seam binding- dyed to match!
Lot's of little details have been added. I've embossed the tag the dress form is on (which is BoBunny packaging) and added bits of modeling paste here and there...just touches not too overwhelming.
For projects like this I enjoy lots of buttons and little bits of punching here
Tiny details like twine, pearls and brads...
More close ups...
Thanks a bunch for your visit today! I hope you enjoyed my printers tray and and are inspired to create one of your own!
