"Simple Pleasures" Home Decor


Authentique Paper and Therm O Web are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Therm O Web products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Therm O Web blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************

Oh boy do I love making some 3D projects!
I am definitely not a flat crafter so Therm O Web's 3D Foam Squares are a favorite friend of mine.
I was also very pleased with the outcome of their Gold Glitter Dust, which adds just the finest sprinkling of shimmer.  
For my project today I've combined pieces from the new Seasons: Summer collection, to create a little hanging for the door or wall.  Seasons: Summer is a petite collection and follow-up to Seasons: Winter and Spring.

To get started, I took a scallop chipboard sheet (from a Maya Road chipboard album set) and painted it in a warm yellow acrylic paint.  Next, I distressed the edges by dipping a sponge with ColorBox Mudslide ink and then wiping it across the edge.  


Shake the can of Glitter Dust well and then lightly spritz the chipboard.  I love that the sprinkles are random and not overly heavy...it's just right for a project such as this.

I used the larger 3D Foam Squares on the paper piecing, the round sticker, and the sentiment.  For the leaves and the small hexagon pieces, I used the small 3D Foam Squares. Yes, I believe in using a lot of foam!

Although you can't see it very well in the photos, I did lightly spray the hexagon cut-out shapes with the Glitter Dust before adhering them to the paper.


I like using a thin ZOTS for things like ribbon, bows and buttons...it sticks!

 Now it's all done and ready for hanging or gift-giving!
I also love to attach hangers like this to a plain grapevine wreath and hang on a door (covered and safe from the elements).  You will love Seasons: Summer...I can't wait for you to see it all!

  8. I just got a "warehouse sale" box from Maya Road and there are so many different chipboard albums in it. I'm glad to get ideas for using them. I don't think I would have thought of breaking the sets up but it is a more useful way of using them. Your hanger is so pretty and I can see lots of places to use it.
    Thanks for sharing.
    I have a lot of Zots and use them all the time on my projects. I can see they will come in handy for my chipboard projects.
