Pam Bray Designs: A Girl With Flair

Sharing creative ideas through mixed media, stamps, embossing powder, charms, chipboard, stencils and designer collections

Art with Heart always creates A Beautiful World, don’t you think? 
I hope you have taken time to create a project and link it up on the Eileen’s Inspiration Blog... HERE for the Art with Heart-Choose Your Own theme….Choose something Old and make it New!!!!
 I began my “A Beautiful World” Plaque by first running Graphic 45 Botanicabella pattern paper through my “NEW” Xyron Creative Station!!! (FYI this is a must have in your studio!!! It not only uses 9″ adhesive…..but it also uses 5″adhesive…so easy and quick to use)
Back to my project…once the adhesive is applied to the paper, place on plaque. Using stencil, palette knife and DecoArt Media White Gesso…apply to plaque and a piece of burlap. Allow both pieces to dry completely.
Change to the 5″ Xyron Cartridge by lifting the lever…
Add Xyron Permanent Adhesive to Xyron Creative Station. Run both a piece of Graphic 45 Botanicabella pattern paper and dried burlap piece through the Xyron Creative Station.
Die cut the Sizzix Gardening Tool out of prepared paper and chipboard. Place adhesive pieces on chipboard pieces.
Ink Sizzix Gardening Tools with Walnut Stain and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. 
Die cut one piece of Sizzix Watering Can out using chipboard and one piece with 
Graphic 45 Botanicabella pattern paper. 
Run the pattern pieces through the Xyron Creative Station apply to top of Watering Can. Decorate Watering Can with paper strips and embellishments. Add to front of A Beautiful World Plaque.
Add prepared Sizzix Gardening Tools to the front of plaque.
Die cut several of the Flower Layers with Heart Pedals from pattern paper, roll with stylus on flower mat. Layer together and place on plaque. Add metal gears in the centers.
Fussy cut butterflies, layer together on bottom of plaque. Layer a few together and place around the flowers. Add brown twine bow.
I hope you enjoyed my “A Beautiful World” Plaque and take time to make yourself or some one else something this week. REMEMBER to link you projects up to Art with Heart if you are using any of Eileen’s Sizzix Dies.
