I’m just gonna be honest…most times when I sit down to create I have no idea what I am going to do. Rarely do I plan ahead. I just sit down and let my supplies inspire me. And that is what being a BAD GIRL is all about…and that is how we are BRINGING SEXY BACK! If art is something that was going to stress me then why would I do it??? So that is what I encourage you NOT to do…NO STRESS…just play girlies…and most of all HAVE FUN!
So when I sat down to create this Layout, again my mind went to the book that I started making for my husband to hold love notes. So this is another page. I really love the Gypsy on the 7 Gypsies paper so I decided to highlight her. But I love the fabric and the moulds and the flash card…and the transparency…yep…her we go…I have to put it all on the page…*sigh*….lol…
I went a little crazy with my sewing machine…*gasp*…what else is new???!!! hahaha…
I cut out the numbers on the flash cards and grunged them up a bit with the cream paint…holy crap I love that paint…when they say HIGH IMPACT they really mean it…super opaque…gets the job done in one swipe! Take notice that all that is holding my numbers in place is the stitching and to add interest I put half the numbers behind the transparancy…who’d a thunk??? lol….
The Gypsy photo is held in place with the 7 Gypsies ephemera as hinges and I added a shabby half frame around Ms. Bad Ass Gypsy that I created with the Prima moulds and I colored them with the Gold Glimmer Glam. I wanted to #keepitreal which is why I left the frame white where I have the break…I wanted it to appear like a worn broken frame…another reason why I didn’t trim neatly around it.
I added turquoise paint to the background to add contrast in a #badassway! Look closely and you will notice I also added a touch of the Gold Glimmer Glam over the paint on the bottom to create harmony with the gold frame and the gold in the fabric.
I formed pockets to the side by stitching and made three tags with assorted papers in the kit. Take notice at the top I folded the fabric backward at the top and created a place to put a pen…this way I can grab the book at any time and not have to look into the black hole where all the pens disappear into…LOL…
Here’s a closeup of the gorgeous 7 Gypsies ephemera…gosh I am so in love with it…it adds so much interest and texture…and look at how amazing the fabric looks with the transparency on top of it. So girlies…get your kits out and just PLAY…have fun and DO NOT be afraid to be BAD and just try ANYTHING…mx it all up and create something SEXY! Have a fabulously BAD ASS DAY!
