Hi friends, I made another vignette, I enjoy making them a lot, so I will focus more on vignettes instead of cards, I’ll be probably still making them but because we are getting close to the holidays time will be against me. I hope you like it!
Same concept of my two prior to this, a 12″by12″ white canvas, with the frame covered with strips of an old book, the background is from the Stamperia collection which I absolutely love, went around the frame with an ink applicator and Distress Vintage Ink from Tim Holtz Collection.
I added some Faded Jeans Distress ink too to the frame, it’s very subtle, in the picture you can barely see it, sorry !
With a 3D embossing folder from Sizzix and Tim Holtz Collection I have created some snow flakes.
With a Tim Holtz stencil I want to cover most of the background using texture paste.
This is how it came out, still in the process to cover most of the background !
With my Sizzix Big Shot and a die from Tim Holtz Collection, I have cut the words “HelloWinter” and stained them with Distress Faded Jeans Ink and Distress Broken China Ink, I thought the two colors were perfect for this particular vignette.
Above you can see how it came out, I glued them together and eventually stained the border with Distress Vintage Photo Ink.
With Collage Medium I glued on the snow flakes Distress Mica Flakes to give them some sparkle.
I have cut a rectangular piece from another Stamperia Blue Land sheet of paper to glue on top the sign that says “Hello Winter” and dabbed all the edges with Distress Vintage Photo Ink.
With my Tonic Studio stamp station I have positioned cleared stamps from Stampers Anonymous to stamp a strip of paper.
I stamped and embossed little sentiments using VersaMark sticky ink and Distress Broken China embossing Glaze from the Tim Holtz Collection. I ended up not using this particular one but two of the same, smaller and more appropriate for the frame, I have used this one for the next step.
After I cut a post card from the Blue Land Stamperia scrapbooking book, I glued the embossed strip on it.
I took a cloud from Stampers Anonymous Christmas set and stamped and embossed three clouds, I used Distress Black Soot Ink.
After I embossed the clouds with black embossing powder, I stained them with Distress Weathered Ink from Ranger.
I have fussy cut the clouds.
I have covered the back of the canvas with pieces of pages of a book using collage medium, I use Golden Gel Matte medium.
I started gathering my material and assemble my vignette, as you can see on top of the frame I have glued the sign “Hello Winter” on the top center, and used two small screws to add a bit of grunge feeling, in the final piece I actually used four of them.
I stained “DEC” and “25” wood cutouts with Distress Frosted Juniper and glued them to the frame.
This is the finished and assembled piece, I used a mixing of Tim Holtz material and Stamperia, I added a string of mini lights under the frame, in the nest picture you can see the lit vignette. For the postcard, the dear, the calendar and the clouds I glued them with doubled sided adhesive dots to have a 3D effect.
And this is it, I am very happy with it and I will certainly make more, like I stated before I will take a small break fro the blog as me being from Modena Italy, but living in the USA, I have to prepare a ton of handmade tortellini for Christmas , if I find the time I will start another project, if I don’t I wish you a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday to all of you. Thanks for the support, down below you will find a slideshow of all my pictures.
