I am so excited to be here. I always knew I was a Diva!!! Thank you to Karin for having me here. I hope you will be inspired by my Cricut projects as well as my fellow Design Team Sisters. My goal is to inspire you to use your Cricut machines and not just for paper crafting. The starting point for this mixed media plaque begins with the Word Collage cartridge.
When I applied for the DT I immediately thought of this project I had made in September. I used a lot of cartridges to make my project, the main starting point was with Word Collage. I love mixed media.
After using some paint fabric and vinyl I had a great base to start with. Of course I had to add some stamping as well.
Now the fun begins, lol. I pulled out my Cricut Expression, some acrylic and various cardstock. I used Celebrate With A Flourish for the wine bottle and glasses and French Manor for the corner glasses. My emblem on the glasses is from Mini Monograms.
In order to add some dimension I used some rubber grapes from my stash and a cork. Here’s the completed project:
There you go ladies. Thank you so much for looking. If you would like more details you can find the info on my blog at http://mary-fortheloveofart.blogspot.com/2013/04/wine-plaque-mixed-media.html
