I knew that I didn't have a corrugated jacket from this company and actually went on their website and selected a book….but, because it wouldn't be here until next week and I am a "need to do it yesterday" girl, I found a cardboard version.
I begun by brayering Little Black Dress, Snowflake and Pewter randomly onto the surfaces. I decided to leave some of the background showing. Next I did the lid stamping in Black and with a lolly stick made little lines to mimic the corrugated pattern that I hadn't got.
Next, I had great fun making my own washi tape. All my stamps used are from PaperArtsy.
It was really going well and I normally spend ages choosing positioning of things but this just went on straight away. Washi tape on and really pleased.
Next I made some letters from corrugated card and scruffed them up a bit. I think that I am very good at achieving scruffy!
I glued them onto black card to make them stand out and attached them and some string and a tag.
My intention is to use this folder to store my pictures of faces that I have collected to take to my Dina Wakley class in 2 weeks….(very excited) !!!!
Thanks Julie Ann, your work is amazing and you inspire me greatly! x
Loving your STUFF folder Hazel, great colours and great washi tape, can understand why you feel so inspired by Julie Ann, she just has that 'something' that gets you fired up and wanting to make something.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your Dina Wakley class, something i might do next year faces, still trying to find my way ;-) xxx
WOW Hazel, this is fabulous and love how you just went for it and didn't think too much about it, best way in my opinion and it certainly worked for you this time.ReplyDelete
I too love what Julie Ann does and she's a great inspiration to us all.
Your folder is fantastic, Hazel!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Well, Hazel, I'm glad you can't see me blushing here at the nice things you and Sam have said! I just love to grab something like these folders and get altering! I got totally lost in this little project and I really hope you did too. I just got in from taking my son to the theatre but I had to look at what you've created and it's great! What an excellent idea to use this folder to keep your DW faces in! It looks like a brilliant arty case! I love all the homemade washi you created from the PA stamps and those letters look fabulous. Thank you so much for joining in! It really does give me a 'buzz' to think that you've played along and had some fun! xxxReplyDelete
Wow, this is brilliant Hazel! I so envy your energy and enthusiasm for creating. I wear myself out thinking about it too much first, lol! Love the neutral colour combo and every time I see them I make a mental note to buy those fabulous eyes (or rather the stamp thereof, lol). You really ran with Julie Ann's gorgeous folder and created a wonderful version of your own.ReplyDelete
What a fabulous folder for STUFF, lol! I've got at least one of these, rather than a corrugated one (although may have some of them too...) so this would be a good idea to play with!ReplyDelete
This is Fab Hazel, it is a great take on Julie Ann's project xReplyDelete
This is fab hazel and I particularly love the eyes and the washi tapes. The Amazon folders were such an inspiring idea; just wish col didn't bin them all!ReplyDelete
A fantastic arty folder Hazel! I love your washi tapes!ReplyDelete
