Grungy Tattered Floral Headband... Pretty in Pink
with an Eye for Steampunk

Hi everyone! I know it's been awhile – I have several new hats that I am wearing now, but I am still creating. A couple weeks back, I took a workshop from Dyan Reaveley and learned all about her bright, colorful art journaling techniques. I had a blast!

I need to gush a little... because I am so excited!!! Have you seen the new Summer Issue of PaperHaus Magazine??? This tattered floral headband is featured as part of the Amazing Crafting Products Ad that appears in this new issue of PaperHaus. 

I'm so thrilled to be the new Creative Team Coordinator for Amazing Crafting Products and so proud that my entire creative team is featured on this Amazing Crafting Products Ad.

This flower is so gorgeous with several layers of vintage lace dress detailing, tulle, burlap and muslin fabric die-cut flowers grunged up with Ranger Ink Adirondack Paint Daubers and Antique Linen Distress Stain. I added just a touch of steampunk flair by attaching a cast vintage bezel using Amazing Casting Resin colored with Alumilite Pearlescent and Silver Metallic Powders. The lace detailing was a bright pink, which is why the flower has a slight pink tone also - all inked to match with a little paint to tone down the pink and a little ink to add some pink to the layers. For an "all things purple" girl... I really LOVE this! I get so many compliments when I wear this, people are surprised to hear that I made it.

Be sure to check out the PaperHaus "Summer Delight" event - its all about fun summer days filled with scrapbooking and crafting! Everyday in June on the PaperHaus Blog, there will be amazing inspiration and tutorials.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!  Sb  :)
