SFTIO DT Reveal #2

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful, relaxing weekend. I wanted to take a minute to blog this morning to share my SFTIO DT Reveal #2. For this project, I decided to create an altered project: a wall hanging to go in my scrappy studio. This wall hanging features paper from the Graphic 45 'Steampunk Debutante' line. It is really funky and I like it! It's definitely different from the papers that I normally would of scrapped with, but as I worked with them, I found I love the edge they have to them. They really make you take a second glance. Every detail in the patterned paper just is so interesting. Loved it!

This wall hanging is 12x12. I started with a piece of Graphic 45 paper and did a lot of cutwork to it. I also brought in some misting using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Tim Holtz masks. They are the clocks you can see in the background. All embellishments were pulled from the October SFTIO 'Purpose' kit, except the black alphas. Those are from my own scrappy stash and are from American Crafts. I adhered all of this down onto a sturdy piece of 12x12 chipboard. I also added in some black trim to the edges, pearl ribbon for the hanger, and some stitching. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry for the black trim, Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for the flower and chipboard, and Helmar Zap Dots to pop up the wings on the lady and the butterflies. My trusty Helmar Adhesives really came to this rescue for this project. Here is my wall hanging:

"Live With Purpose"
 I cut the word 'live' out using my Cricut and Home Accents cartridge. The alphas on the chipboard are Cosmo Cricket.
 Can you see the wooden accents on the chipboard frame? They remind me of Bingo pieces. I loved those! They are in the kit too!
 Up close of some of the embellies and stitching...
 I love the lady that is from a piece of Graphic 45 patterned paper. She is so Victorian looking....right up my alley! I cut her out using my craft knife. I popped up the wings and curled the edges.
 On the frame of butterflies, I used my craft knife to cut the wings of the 4 butterflies in the corners. I then used Zap Dots to pop those up.
 Love these flowers in the kit! The feathers really make them pop for me.
Thanks for visiting my blog today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you tomorrow!

Happy Scrappin' AND ROLL TIDE!!! Go Bama! (LOL...can you tell it's time for some football?!!!)
Pin It!
