I was looking for a certain photo & happened upon this.
One of my CHA Maya Road assignments was the "butterfly" book. It's 8 huge chipboard pages to alter...but I used just 2 to make this basket tie-on. Remember...look @ the potential...sorry for the lecture!
Here's a side shot to show how it's dimensional.
I wired 2 pages together to make it nice & sturdy. I made the body from a portion of Maya Road's "borders" sheet. HEY... it looked like a body to me...
The "scroll corners" were a good fit for wing accents.
First they were inked with vintage photo distress ink,
then stamped with this cool stamp from
Stampers Anonymous ( #V1-929),
using Ranger's jet black archival ink.
The black buttons are also from Maya Road. A few black rhinestones were the finishing touch.
In order to bend the wings, I stuffed (there's a real technical term!) tissue paper between the wings to gradually bend them. I left the paper in place overnight & when I removed it...they MAGICALLY stayed up.
A little ribbon on the back & it seemed to have found a home on this basket.
SO................ the moral of the story???
Try something different...challenge yourself!! It's FUN!
