12 days of Whimsy - Day 9, 10 and Day 11 Projects

Hello again, I am back with my latest 12 days of Whimsy Projects. I can't believe tomorrow is the last day! I have had so much fun trying these mixed media Projects and have learnt a lot.

For day 9, I made a tag which I inked with distress inks and then stamped with a Hero Arts stamp before spraying with glimmer mist. I love the effect the glimmer mist gave to the stamped background. I layered up muslin and lace and also added lace to the bottom of the tag using my sewing machine.

LinkI die cut and stamped and inked a smaller tag which I added on top of the lace and a photo from the Graphics Fairy which I mounted on to a scalloped circle cut from a book page. I finished with buttons, some silver leaf sprigs and buttons and a flower from Primark.

Day 10 was one of my favourit projects to make. I bought a cheap hardback book from a hardware store and covered it with stripey paper and then embellished it with music paper, a vintage postcard and stamp and a die cut heart which I inked and covered in chunky glitter. The photo corners which were embossed with silver powder are from Quixotic paperie and the lace was tea dyed as it was a horrible blue and white. The buttons were from a charity shop.


Today's project was great fun! Luckily, I had made my boys Chili con carne last night so I had a jar ready and waiting to be used. It had a black lid, so I heat embossed it with silver powder to make it pretty! The images I used are from The Graphics Fairy and I used flower soft for the snow.

I added music paper to the lid and a wooden snowflake topped with a pearl button and silver glitter glue around the edges of the die cut circle.

As a finishing touch, I added a seam binding bow and a wooden heart painted with distress paints, a little bell and a chandelier crystal. I can't wait to see what tomorrow's Project will be, although I am a little sad the 12 days are nearly over...
Enjoy your Sunday evening!
