Design Team Project #1

Good morning everyone ... Gillian here with my 1st DT project for Snazzy's. My project kit contained the following items which are available from Snazzy's.

7Gypsies Lille 12x12 Papers
7Gypsies Lille Clear Stamps
7Gypsies Lille Tags
Ranger Distress Stains (Vintage Photo & Weathered Wood)
Versafine Crimson Red
Tando Creative Chipboards (Mixed)

I started out by painting the smallest of the Configuration boxes including inserts with Adirondack Paint Dabber (Expresso). Using the 7Gypsies (Lille) papers I tore various areas of the paper and adhered to the side and top of the box using Matte Medium, then distressing with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo). I then stamped 7Gypsies (Lille) clear stamps in Versafine (Crimson Red) onto the 7Gypsies (Lille) tag and distressed with Vintage Photo. The inserts top left, top right, bottom left & bottom right also have 7Gypsies (Lille) paper within. I then covered the small Tando Chipboard squares with Lille papers and edged with Vintage Photo attaching a Philosophy Tag on one & a piece of IdeaologyTape on the other . I then stamped (7Gypsies Lille Stamps) onto said papers and adhered to the Ideaology Cork Vial (again using Matte Medium) and distressing with Vintage Photo. In the centre of the box I have torn a piece of 7Gypsies Lille papers and adhered to the Ideaology Film Strip using Matte Medium. I then highlighted various areas of the Configuration Box with Metallic Rub on Wax. Various Ideaology embellishments have been used to decorate the box.

I will be back on Wednesday with an extra bonus DT project using the above supplies. I hope to see you then. A big thank you to all our new followers who have joined us since the DT launched, it's great to see some new and familiar faces alike.
