Greetings, Teresa Jaye playing with you today!
I have a project to share with you on which I've demonstrated creating layers.
I started with a plain fiberboard frame purchased at a big box store. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it before I put on the first layer (which is patterned paper), but here is what you'll need:
The patterned paper (by Making Memories) is applied with Mod Podge under and over the paper. Use a sanding tool to clean up the edges after the Mod Podge dries.
Next comes a layer of ink (Ranger Archival in Coffee) randomly applied through a stencil (Mini Chicken Wire Reversed stencil by Crafters Workshop) with a finger dauber.
And then a layer of vintage tissue paper torn in bits and applied with Mod Podge under and over:
How pretty all the layers look, yet the project is still completely flat! The trick is in the tissue paper as it is quite transparent!
Now I added some dimension by embellishing with burlap, netting, felt, and a vintage doily (there is a paper flower and canister by Making Memories in the picture but I wound up not using it)And here's the finished project
With a picture of my friends puppy in it - the perfect birthday present for her!
Thanks for joining me!
I hope you are inspired to try some layering on your next project!
