Today's post features a mini one-sheet-wonder combined with a bit of recycling. Incorporating old dictionaries into art has been my latest craze - and they are FUN! Try sourcing these at tag/garage sales, local auctions and even your bookshelves at home.
To make the thin dictionary sheets more stable I adhere them to a piece of solar white cardstock using Matte Accents from Ranger. Smear the adhesive with your finger to completely cover the cardstock. Then firmly press the dictionary sheet and remove any air bubbles.
Punch out images using a 1" square punch or cut into 1" squares.
Sponge Distress Antique Linen over each inchie, then blend edges using Distress Vintage Photo. Lightly tap edges with Distress Walnut Stain. The photo above shows the difference between the naked inchies and the ones with the Distress inks applied - big improvement! Try incorporating thin strips of decorative paper from your scrap pile to further embellish if desired.
Stamp swirls from the Beautiful set (Rummage Bin/CHF) onto Arturo light blue notecards, and mat distressed Inchie squares with Licorice cardstock. Adhere matted Inchie square to upper left corner overlapping the stamped swirl.
Inchie images were repeated onto the gorgeous Arturo envelopes - fabulous weight to these.
