ATS May Release Sneak Peek - Day 4!!

Thursday, May 3, 2012

It's the fourth and final day of sneak peeks for the All That Scraps May releases! I hope you've enjoyed them all so far!

Today we have a treat for you all! Amy Young has come up with a new collection for us to fall in love with! One of three outdoorsy girls,...

Meet Elsie!!

 (I apologize for the photo, but I do not own a light box and this is the best I can do in my old farmhouse!)

She's a beauty isn't she?? I love her pinafore apron and bonnet! When I got her in the mail, I also got the fence, flower and grass border dies with her, which gave me the idea to create a shadow box wall plaque for my daughter's room. This photo doesn't do it justice, but in real life, this has a ton of depth and it looks so good on her dresser!

To make this wall plaque, I purchased an inexpensive double matted photo frame (which game me enough depth without sandwiching any of the pieces up against the glass) from Michaels. I stamped out Elsie onto some white cardstock, colored her up with my reinkers, paper pieced her apron and bonnet and cut her out. Then I cut out two fences from some wood patterned paper (from K&Company) and trimmed off the pickets from one of them. Next, I adhered the trimmed pickets to the face of the second fence with dimensionals. Then I cut the grass and flower border dies from white cardstock, colored them in with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, and adhered them to the fence with glue. Then I mounted that and some clouds (cut from sparkly mulberry paper) to some blue patterned paper. The sentiment is from last month's Watering Can Logo's set. It worked perfectly with this image!As a last detail, I added adhesive pearls to the centers of the flowers.

Here's a close up of the image. (Bad photo again, I'm so sorry!)

Now you should definitely head over to the ATS blog to check out what the other DT girls did with Elsie and her two friends!
