Design Team Project #3 Featuring Studio 490 ....

Hello everyone .... I'm back with my last DT project featuring the awesome range that is Studio 490
can you hear the sadness in my voice .... really I could create art every day with these little beauties.

For this project I dug deep into the Art Parts Sample Pack we were sent .... well I didn't have to dig deep as I had oodles of parts still to play with. I started out by covering the circle insert with paper from Tim's Ideaology paper pad, trimmed to size and then sanded around the edges. I then coloured the circle frame with Distress Ink (Crushed Olive) and stamped the background stamp from Well Worn Art

For the centre I have used a frame from the Bookplate Art Parts Set which I have inked using Distress Ink (Wild Honey) then stamped the centre image of the Bookplate using a stamp from Well Worn Art , I then stamped around the edge of the Bookplate with the background stamp from It's More Flower Art. 

My fav gent of all time is from the Art Part Set "For The Guys"  which I inked with Ditress Ink (Crushed Olive) and stamped with the corresponding stamp which is from SteamPunk Art.

I then used two of the scallop borders which are also in the sample pack, inked them using Wild Honey & Crushed Olive, stamped again with the two background stamps used above .... this is where the "lightbulb moment" came in ... I wondered if I could create like a layered shelf for the circle to stand within .... so I adhered the borders slightly offset from one another using Glossy Accents, I then used Ideaology Hitch Fasteners either side. I used four of the small circles from the spool kit to create a stand either side of the frame to add more stability (again using Wild Honey) for colour. To finish off I added Ideaology Cork Vials either side and filled them with metal brads & fasteners again adhering with Glossy Accents and also Ideaology pen Nibs

Don't forget throughout the moth of February we would LOVE to see YOUR Studio 490 Art and remember there are fabby goodies to be given away too, see HERE.
