F is for Fifties
Topic: A-Z round 1

I had a brilliant idea in the middle of the night and this fifties 'Rockola' jukebox is the result. For this I plowed through my drawer called 'wow papers' and found all kinds of sparkly stuff. I trimmed it up with mesh, peel-offs, stickers and such. 

For the inside I made little 45 records with two hole punches and a hole reinforcement.

E is for Elegant
Topic: A-Z round 1

I hope you will agree that this qualifies as Elegant! I stitched the corners through stickers and added a 3D floral arrangement in the center. The dotted background is scrapbook paper.

D is for Distressing
Topic: A-Z round 1

Distressing is not something I do very often in my artwork. But it is on my assigned list so...

This lady is a 3D sheet although I did not cut it as assigned. The background is from the same set and came with the fan affixed. I used an Adriondack inkpad direct-to-paper to distress the edges before mounting on a scrapbook paper with a crackle finish.

C is for Corrugated
Topic: A-Z round 1

It is just coincidence that C is for Christmas as well as for Corrugated! I didn't plan to start making Christmas cards this early! I had the red corrugated cardstock and when I went through my supplies I found several premade 3D tags and embellishments that someone gave me. They happened to be related to Christmas, so this is where I ended up. 

To this one I added some epoxy stickers for a finishing touch.


I had fun making this fireplace to hang my tag with stocking.  I scored the corrugated stock to give the impression of bricks and finished with peel-off gifts on the mantle and the greeting.

A panel of corrugated stock was torn to make a top and bottom element. The three ornament stickers were hung from the upper block and a couple of bitty holly stickers frame the top. I used a fine-line watercolor marker to draw a broken border all around.

B is for Buckle
Topic: A-Z round 1

I chose 'buckle' for B but I didn't have a buckle! I made this one out of a label mount and some wire. I selected the ribbon because it was the only one I had in the size to fit the buckle!

I then designed a card to fit the colors of the ribbon. The dress is cut out of a printed scrapbook paper and the ribbon wrapped and attached (using silicon). I used watercolor markers to draw on a few styling details and added coordinating brads for buttons.

The completed piece is then glued to a text-printed scrapbook paper and then onto a card front. The final piece is the text sticker placed on the 'hemline'

A is for Applique
Topic: A-Z round 1

The self-challenge is off and running! For the first-round A entry I chose 'applique'.

This piece is overall about 9.5 inches square. I began with 4 scrapbook papers in plaids resembling fabrics and cut two hearts out of each using my Coluzzle. These I arranged in a circle on a sheet of scrapbook paper with a quilted fabric print. In the center I arranged a triangle of each print, overlapping as needed.

I used a white gel pen to create 'stitches' on each patch, with a different stitch for each color.

I cut the piece down to a square and mounted on sturdy cardboard. I cut an aperture in a final pattern of paper and adhered it overlapping the outside edges of the square. I used a purple gel pen to mark out stitching around this binding.

This piece was then wrapped to the back using a bookbinding corner process. A final piece was cut to 'line' the back of the panel.

The final step was to install eyelets at the two corners and tie on a length of green plaid ribbon for hanging.
