Good morning and welcome to the third day of the Graphic 45 and Want2Scrap Blog Hop!  I hope you’ve been following along all week.  There have been some outstanding projects posted by the designer for both teams!  In case you haven’t and want to catch up, here’s a list of all the designers participating:

I almost forgot to tell you this . . . there are prizes!  Randomly chosen design team members from both Graphic45 and Want2Scrap will pick a random winner from their blog, and both Graphic45 and Want2Scrap will be picking a random winner from Facebook.  That means there’s 4 chances to win amazing prizes this week!

Now for my project!


For my project (wall hanging) I used one page from the 8×8 Decorative Design Chipboard Album from Want2Scrap as the base.  It was covered with Graphic 45 Curtain Call paper using matte multi-medium and the excess was sanded off.  Vintage Photo Distress Ink was used to sponge all the edges.

The frame in the background (covering the Clara Bow ad), was made by die cutting printer’s chipboard with Spellbinders™ Labels Four.  Printer’s chipboard is thin cardboard that I purchase at my local office supply store.


To accent the metal flowers, I made some smaller ones with Graphic 45 Flowers and small white corsage flowers, that were dipped in melted UTEE (Faux Porcelain Flowers).  The floral accents pieces are Chipboard Embellishment Style A from Want2Scrap, that were painted with Peeled Paint Distress Stain and then covered with Peeled Paint Distress Stickles.


For trim on the shelf (which is made from hobby wood trim, painted and sanded, and highlighted with Vintage Photo) I added a Maya Road mini spool and a mini bottle.
