Here is my Altered Frame

I have been cleaning out my craft room and came across this plain wood frame, which I painted white with acrylic paint (another great find!)

Altered Frame by Beth Pingry for Donna Salazar Blog Hop

I mixed Gold Pigment Powder with Girlie Grunge Art Medium to make a glaze and covered the frame. Next I mixed the same Gold Pigment Powder and water to color the Pennant, and I pulled some of the extra strings off the sides for more fringe.

To make the rose design, I mixed Gold Pigment Powder with clear embossing powder and stamped the Flower Bouquet stamp with embossing ink, sprinkled the gold mix, and then heat embossed.

For the flowers, I die cut the blue denim from the Pennant Set with a variety of flower dies – Jumbo Rose, Bitty Blossoms, and Rose Creations. I also die cut Girlie Grunge Gauze to layer between the flowers. The layers are adhered with Dodz™ XL and Dodz™ 3D, and the larger flowers have been with Girlie Grunge Art Medium and then shaped and allowed to dry.

To make the ‘wood’ die cut, I applied Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape to cardstock then die cut with the Memories die. I stamped the words Artistic, Creative, Inspired from Journal Words onto Canvas Ribbons, and then adhered them onto Crafty Foam Tape for dimension. The Swirls and Fleur de Lis are from the 3D Foam Swirls set, and I applied Gold Pigment directly to the sticky surface on them (just rub on with a finger). I layered Lace Ribbons & Denim Ribbons at the top of the Pennant with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″. The background is kraft paper.

I have been working closely with Donna Salazar for the past year, and it has been pure pleasure! Last week we spent 5 days at a trade event in Salt Lake City. We had the best time! She is not only super creative, but sweet and fun to be around. I just hope some of her genius will rub off on me!

This tag is a reflection of many techniques I have learned from Donna, and I hope you like it!

BethPIngry-FlowerTag-2The larger roses were die cut with the Pennant Set. I adhered the fabric to cardstock with Adhesive Sheets first, to give it stability. Then I added E-Z Dots® Repositionable to the petals, then gently rubbed on Blue and Pink Pigment Powders.

BethPIngry-FlowerTag-3

The centers are Canvas Ribbons, twisted and rolled. All layers adhered using Dodz XL™. The white ribbon is the Organza from Texture Ribbons, folded and heated to make it shrively.

The tag is embellished with more E-Z Dots® Repositionable, randomly placed, rubbed with Blue and Brown Pigments. I added 3D Foam Swirls, with Blue Pigment Powder, and then tied a knot at the top with the scalloped ribbon from Denim Ribbons.

Mixed Media Tag Trio

Good morning! Today I have a trio of mixed media tags on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog. This one is inspired by a tutorial by Birgit Koopsen about a year ago. Please check out the steps, it really is easy and fun and I love the way they turned out!

BethPingry-ArtsyTags11Beth Pingry - Artsy Tags TrioI used Adhesive Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Clearsnap inks, and Spellbinders die on this project. The whole thing is on the Arty Tags blog post.
