Hey there Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. This month, the design team decided that one of our projects would feature the new Zen Dragonfly chipboard piece. So for my project I used the Zen Dragonfly along with a few other chipboard pieces to create my beautiful Memories Wall Hanging. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and read below as I share with you how I created my Memories Wall Hanging.
To start, place the Soda Fizz Stencil on the Square Lace Frame. Once the stencil is placed on the frame, apply a thin coat of Transparent Matte Texture Paste through the stencil. Lift the stencil off the frame. After the paste has been applied, let dry for 15 minutes. With the texture paste now dry, apply two coats of Black Gesso. Let the gesso dry for 15 minutes.
With the gesso now dry on the square lace frame, apply Vintage Silk Opal Magic Wax to the entire frame. Once the wax has been applied, rub the Black Soot Distress Crayon along the edges of the frame. With the Distress Crayon on the frame, rub the wax from the crayon into the frame.
Paint a coat of black gesso on the Zen Dragonfly. Once the gesso is applied on the zen dragonfly, apply both the Green Brocade and Blue Velvet Opal Magic Wax onto the dragonfly.
Apply Ranger Ink Emboss It Ink to the entire zen dragonfly. Once the ink has been applied, sprinkle Iridescent Shimmer Embossing Powder over the entire dragonfly. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool.
Cut two pieces of Honeycomb pattern. Apply two coats of Black Gesso to the honeycomb pattern. Once the gesso has dried, apply Black Soot Distress Crayon to the edges of the pieces. Rub the wax from the distress crayon into the edges of the honeycomb.
Apply a coat of White Gold Opal Magic wax to the Memories Fun Word. Once the White Gold wax has been applied, lightly apply the Green Brocade Opal Magic wax to the Memories Fun Word.
To finish off the edges of the Memories Fun Word, apply Black Soot Distress Crayon to the edges of the Memories Fun Word. Once the distress crayon has been applied, rub the wax from the distress crayon in with your finger.
Cut two pieces of black patterned paper from the Nature Sketchbook 12x12 Patterns & Solids. One piece will measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and the second piece will measure
4 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Adhere one the honeycomb pattern pieces to the bottom right hand corner of the
3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of black patterned paper. Adhere the other honeycomb pattern piece to the top left hand corner of the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of black patterned paper.
Adhere the square lace frame to the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of black patterned paper.
Adhere the 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of black patterned paper to the back of the square lace frame making sure the black patterned paper side faces up.
Foam square the zen dragonfly to the middle of the square lace frame.
Adhere the Memories Fun Word to the bottom portion of the square lace frame.
To finish the Memories Wall Hanging, add a piece of black ribbon to the top of the frame.
