Flea Market inspired

Hey everyone.. It's Kim here to share a flea market style project. I was inspired by this magazine
and this article in particular....

I absolutely LOVE the texture of this Wood frame . The contrast of the smooth pictures and that subtle green color against the wood is just amazing...

Today I am sharing how I made this wall hanging inspired by this article and its artwork.
I started off by inking a 6x6 inch piece of illustration board with Mix'd Media Inx in Peridot, Truffle and Honey. I applied it both with sponge daubers and directly to the board from the tube.
Next I wrapped a piece of lace and netting around the board.

I took a 7x7 sized Corrugated board. Peeled off the front layer to expose the corrugated piece underneath. I spritzed it with Smooch spritzes in Wood Grain, Candle Glow, Ice Rink and Cashmere. I also used Smooch in Molasses with its brush tip to rub lines randomly across the grooves of the corrugated board giving it a wood likeness.

I set this piece aside to dry. Then I cut a label out of Donna's Artistic paper using my Label One die.
I quickly pressed the blank side onto the corrugated  wet front creating a unique grainy stain onto the label. I added some gems to the illustration board and adhered the label to the center.
I cut two butterflies from my Fanciful Flight dies , spritzed them with Ice Rink Smooch Spritz and added them to the right of the label using foam pop dots to add dimension
I also added some seed beads to the center of the butterfly using Glue Gloss. Its thin applicator tip is perfect for small beads, gems etc! I punched some holes into the corrugated top edge using my Bind It All. I ran a wired wrapped twine through the holes and formed a loop wrap... to create a hanging . I wrapped a silk ribbon around the illustration board and adhered the piece to the corrugated background.

Fit a small photo underneath a 3x4 in.clear Acrylic cover from Zutter adhering lightly at the corners.
I trimmed the word "adore" off of a Bingo card and adhered it with a decorative star sticker.

Now I have my own Flea Market inspired decor to enjoy!
