Memories - DT Project by Hels

Goodly Morning Snazzyfans and a very happy Monday to you all!  If you have been following the blog this past month you will have seen some gorgeous creations from my teamies using the fabby Prima Engraver Collection of papers, stamps and flowers.  CLICK HERE to see the collection we have been working with and also... remember you can grab yourself a goodly bargain because our DT kit is for sale at a bargain price too :O))  



My first offering this month is a mahoosive Size 12 tag from Ranger.  The tag base is manila in colour and to make it match with the colour theme of the Engraver papers, I used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain DI's to blend around the edges.   I cut the tag into two pieces so I could then attach it back together with eyelets and a bit of hemp.  I cut some of the papers (they are so gorgeous... almost too difficult to cut them lol) to fit onto the tag in layers... making a focal point on the bottom half of the tag with the clockface.  I added a Tim Holtz Fragment to the centre of the clock to make it pop more.


The cut papers were all edged with Walnut Stain DI and I scruffed up the edges to make it a little more shabby looking.  I added a couple of pieces of the ruler papers so the top bit of the tag as an arty addition.



The sentiment was stamped onto an offcut of paper using Jet Black Archival Ink and then edged with Vintage Photo to make it blend in nicely.   One of the papers has some fabby circle designs on it... and it just so happened that I had three more Fragments that fitted over the circles perfectly... so they were glued on with Glossy Accents and when cut out, edged with more Vintage Photo just so there weren't any white cut bits showing.


The embellishing was fun indeedily... the flowers in the Engraver collection are stunning... the larger ones have a broken glass style of glitter attached to the petals, once I had given them a good spritz with Black Marble Dylusions and Ancient Copper Cosmic Shimmer they really came to life.



The butterflies are also from the stamp set... stamped onto the papers again, using Black Archival and Walnut Stain DI to edge them around to make them match in... and I added some metal spinners to the middles for bodies.

Don't forget that you can still win this fabby collection - just CLICK HERE for the details... easy peasy!   Please do scroll back to see the other beautiful creations that the team have made with this fabby collection...
