My project for the Belinda Basson Design Team for Stamperia this month has Christmas in mind. I created two large baubles using Stamperia products, all of which are listed at the end of this post.
The first step is to wash the baubles in soapy water, dry them thoroughly and then apply a coat of Stamperia Mixed Media glue to the base piece of the bauble only, and allow to dry. This will give the plastic a 'tooth' so that further products will stick and stay put.
Apply a coat of Glamour Paste in Turquoise and allow it to dry. Add the paste up to the rim but not on the rim so that the bauble will close easily.
Time to apply the glitter! Apply a coat of Mixed Media Glue and then generously sprinkle the Glamour Sparkles (Turquoise) whilst the glue is wet. You need patience at this point (I don't have a lot), let it dry thoroughly and then tap off the excess Sparkles. You can put these back in the jar for your next project.
For the right hand bauble (below) an area of 'snow' was created with White Glamour Paste, sprinkled with Glamour Sparkles in White.
Next, add two of the Lady Vagabond chipboard pieces, raising them up with hot glue, silicone glue or several layers of double sided sticky pads, whichever is your preference. You want the chipboard pieces to be level with the top.
Add a small amount of glue around the edges of the baubles and attach the top, leaving them to dry thoroughly.
Finally, apply some velvet ribbon to the edges of the bauble, attaching a bow to the top.
Do the same with the second bauble.
At this point I regretted not trying harder to fit lights to the baubles, I just couldn't get the balance right and the wires kept showing. But, I didn't give up as I hate to be defeated! This bauble uses the new Lady Vagabond Lifestyle chipboard pieces and I did my best to disguise the lights by creating a 'window's edge of snow' using the White Glamour Paste and White Glamour Sparkles. I added a small pocket at the back to hold the battery pack. Whew, not perfect but I love it all the same!
If you have not seen Belinda's new Lifestyle range I hope you will soon, it is beautiful and compliments Belinda's original range perfectly. I am really looking forward to creating projects with it and I hope you will enjoy seeing them.
Thanks so much for your visit, I really appreciate it.
Take care, keep safe and well.
