It's Tasha here and this week I have created a wee inspiration wall hanging using heaps of metal embellishments and other craft supplies from Faiths online store.
The first thing I did was prepare my surface. This is some chipboard I have die cut. I actually adhered two layers on top of one another just to make it sturdier and thicker. I then inked it with Vintage Photo distress stain.
I attached some antique bronze corners to some design paper that I had inked and used my distress tool around the edges and adhered it to the board.
The great thing about the metal filigree pieces is they are so easy to bend to shape and also to cut. You can see here I have cut this piece so I can use the two pieces in different places.
After arranging some of the metal pieces I wanted to use I then went about gluing the pieces down using E6000. This adhesive is the best for adhering metals.
I love this image on this cabochon and the bezel also comes in antique silver. A metal rose and some cute charms are then laid down. Those metal leaves are in the sizes small and medium.
The little wood veneer with the word dream on it came from
the Prima collection - Epiphany and so did those gorgeous sparkly gems. A couple of resin rose cabochons and it's done.
I hope that has inspired you to use more metal in you projects. So much you can do with all these great supplies. I think metal embellishments look great layered up and are such fun to work with.
Until next time...
