Pick of the Day - Entwining trellis - Repurposed chalkboard idea from Mandy


Hi Everyone
I've been working with the new floral Verso Dies from Tonic Studios launched last night over on Ideal World as POD.  I have loved coming up with ideas for them and I can’t wait any longer to share them with you. 

Oh, and BTW, don't forget to catch Jodie with the Pick of the Day on Create and Craft and Ideal World today. To check the TV schedule pop over here.

Here is my first project for you to see.  I started with a cheap £1.99 chalk board!
I've used papers from Tonic’s recent Cameo launch to cover the base using the Pure Matte Adhesive.

Next I die cut lots of flowers from all the die sets and layered and shaped them adding some Nuvo Glitter on the edge of the petals and Crystal drops for the centres of the flowers.  All the flowers are also made from the papers.

Before gluing together,  I added a couple of the Parisian Transfers and distressed the edges of the house with Potting Soil Archival Ink.

The flowers are gorgeous but the panels that are part of the set ……well you’ll have to tune in to see them in action.  The Design Team have made wonderful projects to inspire you.  These are my favourite ones to date (I'm a sucker for a dimensional flower).
I'll be back soon with another project to inspire you along the way.

What Was Used
Tonic Studios Verso Radiant Roselily Die Set
Tonic Studios Verso Bellus Buttercup Die Set

I hope you have been inspired.
Thanks

  1. Got Jody on my TV as I'm writing this! Love the new dies, but sadly can't afford them - your take on them is stunning - amazing what you can do with a 1.99 chalk board.
