Quite a few months ago I created a class where we de-constructed an old pair of denim jeans and made all sorts of projects.
One of them that I loved was to use the Mega Sized Tattered Floral to create a focal piece for fabric panels.
With the mixture of fabric die cuts, stamping with Chocolate Baroque Stamps and embellishing I went on to create three panels. After the class I put them away.
I knew they would be perfect for the bedroom particularly as there are indigo curtains ( I'm a light phobe) as well as other inky accents in the room.
How to frame them was a little problematic until I got out some old frames that just needed a bit of sprucing up. Viva Decor Stamping Paint and a little of the Viva Decor Inka Gold worked some magic.
When I painted the denim I added a little PVA to the paint. This made it stiff enough to be able to shape the fabric pieces. Some of the ribbons and braids needed touches of colour too so that they blended. I know the burlap might fray but hey that's what burlap does!
Of course when I asked Super Star if he could hang these pieces for me he had the drill revving faster than I could take a photo. These are on the wall!
There are a couple of tiny pieces that are joining the denim trio when I find them that is. Slowly we are sorting out all the packed boxes from our renovations. One box at a time!
I've got some ladies about to descend on Time To Create and we are going to get MESSY!
