Making your own embellishment


You can get inspiration
from everywhere,right?

Right.

Well, in my case,
since my world is continuously
circling around ribbon, yarn, thread.....
my inspirations are continuously
starting from those.

Here, I bought a roll of ribbon
months ago,before my exhibition.
When you see it as only
a pretty lacy ribbon,
I cut it and see it like this.


A bird?
Oh, you are good.
Yeeees, a bird.
Let's make something with this bird!


I pull out my
swear-until-death-do-us-part
Gel Medium Matt
(sometimes I used Talens,
sometimes Amsterdam)
which is my secret recipes
to attach anything.
And I mean ANYTHING.

So, go....
attach as many birds
as your heart desire to the
pattern papers using that gel medium,
and you'll have a clear, cute, crisp
bunch of birds like these in no time.


What do you think?


Next step, you need to prepare :
pattern papers, some lace, Stazon,
tags, and black pen
(mine is uni-ball Signo broad-1.0-
I love it...whenever I find these,
I'll grab them for stock
in my full hand.)


Tadaaaa......
the bird finally have a home.


Don't forget to slip a foam tape
or glue dot behind the bird,
to add an 'umph' factor.
(I just made up that word, I know)


Stick it to your next journal
or mini album, then add your tittle...
Voila,
consider yourself done.

See?
making your own embellishment
is good for your hand, your pocket,
and your album.

Brilliant! LoVe your work! **blows kisses** Deb
