Pushing the Envelope(s)

Sunday, 2 March 2014

Hey Everyone,
Toay I'm sharing a project I made using spare envelopes by giving them a makeover.

caution: Picture Heavy Post

Here are the pics:


 Yes, it's a Utility Wall Hanging made out of three spare envelopes. I have taken a few step-by-step pictures so that it's easier to understand the process.
The two corners are folded as shown
The rear side of the envelope, corners are secured using cello tape

The base paper is a red coloured handmade fiber paper that I have been hoarding  since long and now got a chance to put it to good use . I love it's texture. Covered the rear side using a black card stock. I forgot to take the pictures of the rear side, will try to take it soon and upload it.


The peacock and the swirls are quilled using 3 mm quilling strips.


 The spiral roses are also quilled using a white paper from a drawing book. After trying out many types of roses, I settled with spiral ones because I failed miserably at all my rose making attempts  they turned out really good finally. Phew!! :P What do you think ? :D

 Stamped the chevron texture stamp randomly for some grungy look.Finally decorated and embellished with some pearls and rhinestones


And this is why I call it Utility Wall Hanging :D
