Welcome to Day 6 of the 2013 Artisan Award Winner Blog Hop!!  I am so incredibly excited to FINALLY be able to share, in detail, the projects I created for my submission to the contest.  If you came over from Jeanna Bohanon’s blog, Stamp Time Somewhere, I know you have already been impressed by her amazing work.  If not, you can just start the hop here and follow around until you get back to me.

MonogramI thought I’d change it up today and share a 3-d project with you.  I have to admit that these were the category that intimidated me the most.  But when Stampin’ Up announced the new Epic Day Washi Tape I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do!  Monograms are so big right now and I just could not wait to washi tape one!  I found this paper mache “S” at a hobby store (for Stampin’ Up since they were the recipient) that seemed just perfect.  I just started laying the tape and until the patten was finished and then trimmed the edges with an exacto knife.  There were still some rough edges so I used the Sanding Block to clean them up.  To add to the durability, I put on a couple of coats of Modge Podge.  The frame is a shadow box with the glass removed and the background is a piece of Epic Day DSP.  I did absolutely nothing to that paper since I thought is was already perfect!  To decorate the letter, I created a ribbon flower by circling the Basic Black/Basic Gray Wide Ribbon (retired) on a Jumbo Sticky Round.  The center of the flower is a Vintage Faceted Button with a Large Basic Pearl Center.  To hang it, I created a bow attached to another piece of the ribbon.

Because of space limitations at Convention, this piece was sitting on a shelf so you could not see the hangar.  My picture has the bow a bit askew but it was taken on mailing day and I was trying to meet the deadline.  This project is really fun and makable!  I’m hoping to do a version in a local class.

Now, on to the beautiful work of Mercedes Weber of Creations by Mercedes.

Thanks for stopping in today.  See you tomorrow!
