DT Projects 1 & 2 by Astrid featuring Studio 490

Hello everyone,
Isn’t it surprising how the month has flown by and here we are already nearly at the end of it and with that it is my turn to show you some projects featuring the amazing Wendy Vecchi products: “Art Parts”, “Clearly for Art” and a set of ”Studio 490 stamps” .

Those of you who follow this blog regularly have seen incredible projects this month already. Remember also there is still a chance to enter our challenge and win some for yourself, just click on the Studio 490 picture on the right and you will be taken straight there.

With my projects I want to show just how versatile these products are, they can be used for any style and the result can look quite different from Wendy’s own work.

My first projects are made in Shabby Chic style, a hanger and reel to hold lace.

They are simple to make. For the hanger I covered the art parts in papers and fussy cut elements using Kaiser Craft 61/2” Paper Pad “Vintage Timeless”. I glued lace between the backing and the rim and covered the rim with Rangers Crackle Accents. I then embellished with a combination of flowers and leaves made from the “Clearly for Art” coloured with distress inks and some flowers etc I had in my stash. The photo is an old photo of my dad and uncle, it must have been taken in about 1914.

The reel was made from some of the smaller circles in the “Art Parts”, again covered with the Kaiser Craft papers and embellished. The cylinder between the circles is an empty toilet roll.

I will be back on Thursday with my final two projects using the art parts and the stamps. Hope to see you then and meanwhile, stay creative!
