Today, as a member of Eileen Hull's Sizzix Inspiration Team - I have a second project to share using her new Twist and Style tool.
The Twist and Style Tool will be available soon so check your local stores and the Eileen Hull Sizzix Page for updates.
Last Tuesday - I posted a Halloween decoration (see it here if you missed it!)
This week I made some wire blooms and adhered them to a slice of barked wood I had in my stash to create a wall hanging..
And I just free form bent the twisted wire to look like flowers with a little loop on the bottom end that could be a root or a leaf! I glued them to the wood at spots where the wire touched the wood.
I stenciled the piece of wood using WV Archival Leaf Green ink on the bottom half of the wood with Tim Holtz Burlap stencil, and WV Archival Sky Blue Ink on the top half. Then I used WV Archival Buttercup ink through Tim's Rays stencil on the top half. I stuck an Idea-ology Memo Pin into the top of the piece so I could hang it on the wall.
I laid the Rays stencil over the inking again and brushed Crazing Distress Collage Medium over it so the rays had a little texture and shine - I think you can see it a little on the photo above.
This is a photo of the back of the wood piece - so you can see the wood center and bark edge - The stamp says MADE IN PORTUGAL you can also see where I practiced stenciling with the green ink to see if it would show!
To finish off my little wall hanging (this measures ~4" x 6 1/2") I added bird, bumblebee, mushroom and sentiment Idea-ology Remnant Rubs/Botanical, two Big Chat Stickers and one Small Talk sticker. I stuck an enamel dot in the center of each bloom.
Please be sure to check over at Eileen's blog for more inspiration using this fun Twist and Style tool!
