Marvelous Mixed Media Decor
Using several fantastic crafting products to make one piece of DIY home dcor, this simple stunner will be a real conversation starter when you display it in your home.
In the Designer's Words: "I created this home décor piece using lots of new products from CHA, as well as two of my all-time favorite Sizzix dies (Tim Holtz Word Play and Mini Filmstrip) from my stash. I started out by blending a background using Ranger Distress Inks and then embellished with stamps and stencils. What appeals to me most is the contrast between the bright background and the metal, wood, and paper elements. I’ll keep this in a prominent place in my studio to remind myself to find time to Make Time to Create Every Day. I hope you feel inspired and that you'll be easy on yourself... use what you have and just enjoy the process."
One of the best things about being a DIY craft lover is that you learn to love all kinds of crafting materials and amass a horde of fabulous, fun, and unique crafting materials. The problem with having this ever-growing stash is that sometimes it can be hard to decide what kind of craft to make. Sometimes paper crafts sound boring and home décor sounds too lofty. When this happens, get creative and combine crafting ideas to make pieces like this Marvelous Mixed Media Décor! Using several fantastic crafting products to make one piece of DIY home décor, this simple stunner will be a real conversation starter when you display it in your home.
