Hello Fotobella.com Fans! Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility with my 3rd post, as Guest Designer for September on Fotobella.com's blog.
When I received my GDT box I received a Wood Effect Stencil by Stamperia, a Lucky Clover Ranger Distress Spray Stain and some Brown Prima Wire Thread. These were three items I kept thinking, What the heck am I going to do with these? I kept racking my brain and here is what I came up with! Enjoy!
Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain
Cutting Machine of your Choice along
with SVG file to cut the pieces
Quilling tool and/or pencil
Cut all your Pillar Pieces for the pillar on your cutting machine of choice. I bought this particular file from My Scrap Chick.
Apply the Texture Paste with the pallet knives.
Gently pull from one corner of the stencil up and off the cardstock to reveal what the texture paste left on the cardstock
Using your heat gun, dry the texture past and watch it raise a bit to give you the “texture”.
Using a box for a “spray room” to catch your over spray, lay your panels in the box. Lightly spray Ranger Distress Spray Stain, Lucky Clover.
Again, using your heat gun, dry the distress stain until completely dry.
Once your Ranger Distress Spray Stain, Lucky Clover is completely dry, it is time to lay the panels out in your spray box to put a spray layer of Rangers Distress Spray Stain, Picket Fence.
Taking the heat gun, completely dry the Picket fence layer.
Once it is dry, determine if you need another layer of picket fence. If you do, repeat steps 8 & 9.
Repeat all steps above on the top and bottom of the pillar and then fold on perforated lines.
Glue the top and bottom parts to form the “box–like “ forms.
Glue the base of the pillar together
Glue the wood panels that you textured and stained onto the base of the pillar.
Placing glue on the tabs on the bottom of the pillar, place the pillar into the bottom square you made.
Placing glue on the top tabs of the pillar, place the top square you built onto the pillar.
Using Prima Wire Thread, bend it around the pillar for a “3 D VINE effect” around your “tree”.
Finally, adding leaves from the Bo Bunny Foliage Laser Cut Chipboard .I top it off with taking my quilling tool and wrapping the Brown Wire Thread by Prima around it to make it look more like curled vine.
I added battery operated candles from Dollar tree.
Here is they are in the light:
I REALLY love the way this project came out. Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below!
