NEW Summertime in Blue Paper Set, Related Artwork & TWO Sales!

Filed under Art Projects, Fairy Garden, Rhonda Secrist Thomas

It’s the unofficial start of summer so it seems the perfect time for the new Summertime in Blue Paper Set! 5 double-sided cardstock-weight sheets (each a different design) plus a single-sided sheet of birds & branches to fussy cut (printed on the back of the front cover).

Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas has made a sweet birdcage-shaped album with the papers and tons of fairies flitting about. ALL of the supplies from Rhonda’s artwork are included in todays sale (and note the sale on ALL Gnomes & Fairies Collage Sheets, too)! More info below.

But first a couple more notes: there are also 2 single sheets available from that paper set with peeling paint or weather wood planks, which are great for floors and/or walls in a summer beach house kinda miniature project. AND the three Dresden trims below are back in stock!

The State of Being Free by Rhonda Thomas

Rhonda’s album is so pretty! I love her color combo with the (mainly) blue papers from the new set. Here’s a bit from her blog post:

One of my favorite color combinations is deep purple, green and blue. When I saw these Summertime In Blue Papers, I knew I had to create with them and that whatever I made was going to turn out beautifully.

I can always find a use for old dictionary pages. We have a huge used book store in my town and I found my first vintage French Dictionary there. A really old and beautifully illustrated one. The older and dingier the pages, the better. They are especially useful when you are creating with a certain theme in mind, like fairies, butterflies, and freedom.

Freedom was the main word that came to my mind as I kept seeing all of these wonderful, free fairies. The thought of being a free fairy, flying about in the depths of nature sounds so heavenly to me.

The first thing that I did for this project was to put my Birdcage Shaped Album through my sticker machine. Then, I covered each page in one of the Summertime in Blue Papers. This gave me my “canvas” to create on.

For the album cover, I decided to line the back of the “cage” with a dictionary page, then one free fairy, escaping from the cage, with magnificent wings. These Open Half Butterfly Gold Bezel Wings are available in this smaller size as well as a bigger size that have a Swallowtail design. I covered the back with a colored resin to make them stand out even more.

I love how this project turned out! You can see more photos and read more on her blog post. Plus here’s Rhonda’s supply list.
