IKEA Regolit – fixed!

What do you do when you IKEA regolit lamp has taken some beatings? (kids, cutlery, moving, etc…)

Unfortunately the paper-thing isn’t sold separately. Throw it out? Nah, that would be a waste. The rest of the lamp is ok, it’s just the lamphood (or whatever it’s called in english).

It had a few holes, but nothing too bad. In the past few months it seemed to have gotten worse. I haven’t got a picture of where you can see how the flaps hang down, but here is a picture of it after I took it off, ready to be fixed. You can imagine it’s not really a pretty sight when it’s hanging.

So what did I do?

I put in my craftsheet, took out some tissue paper, decoupage pager and degoupage glue and had fun.

Daqadoodles150222zo114410001Here it’s lying flat, ready to be fixed.

Tear your tissue paper in pieces. Don’t cut! Try to get all edges torn – it blends better with the rest that way, else you’ll keep seing the cut edges very well. Put a royal amount of decoupate glue (I used Mod Podge) on the lampshade (aah I think that’s the word!) and put the paper on it, smooth it out with a dry brush. Be careful, it might rip. I didn’t put the second layer of mod podge on right away, as it sometimes causes the paper to tear up too easily. If needed, let it dry a bit first. I just went on to the next gap and fixed that, used several small bits and folded it around the ring a bit too. When layering it on another tissue paper, make sure there is glue in between. Be careful of only working on the craftsheet – I didn’t move it once it was in place, only got it out after everything was dry. I didn’t fix the hole on the right yet, as the craftsheet wasn’t under it and I didn’t want to risk sticking the top of the lampshade to the bottom.

It looked quite ok after this fix, but while I was at it, I thought: why not decorate it a bit more?
So I got out some decoupage paper. I didn’t want to decorate the entire bottom as it ofcourse influences the light coming from the lamp, and as it’s used as a light above our dinner table it’s nice if it is actually light. So no total coverage. No torn pieces of paper this time also.

I got my cuttlebug out, chose some dies and cut the decoupage paper. I decorated it rather sparsely, but I’m happy with the results.

Daqadoodles150222zo124016003 Daqadoodles150222zo124029004 Daqadoodles150222zo124051005

Yes, you still see some lines of the tissue paper, but it’s not as apparent as on the pictures. Also, you could add more die cuts to it. I might still do that, if I find the time.

For now, the hanging bits of paper are out of the way, and the lamp looks good again, with a little personal touch. I can’t wait for more holes to appear again, so I can decorate it a bit more ;).

 

Colour Soup

Daqadoodles150301zo080153032

My entrance for the Chocolate Baroque colour challenge #8 this time is not a card, but a tin can. It all started last Friday, when we were too tired to cook so we decided to get fries. In order to add some healthy food to it, we had soup as well. I know, home made soup would be better, but I am not much of a soup person. Not for making nor eating. So we had soup from a can.

In the evening, I saw the can and thought: hmm let’s try out that new big bold background stamp from chocolate baroque on it! So I got my stuff together and started.

In the next few days I decorated some more of the cans that were allready in use as pen holder. Results vary, and I still don’t know if I like them. I think I’d like them better without the gold.

Let’s start with the colours:

Challenge 8

As I planned to use the decoupage technique with mod podge (decoupage glue) and tissue paper, I didn’t not want water soluble inks, so I searched for matchin colours in my Stazon stack. I notice now that my colours are off a bit. The colours I used: Midnight Blue, Vibrant Violet, St. Valentine (which is too red now I see the image) and Pumpkin. Also used/ tried out: Viva Decor Inka Gold: Oldgold.

Daqadoodles150227vr232949002

I took some tissue paper, the stamp, and inked up the stamp with various colours ink. Then I inked up the brayer and rolled it on the uninked parts of the stamp (as I didn’t want the ink on the stamp get on the wrong inkpad). I think I inked it up with Pumpkin, as it all turend a bit more orange. Fun effect of rolling ink on a brayer (and then the brayer on the tissue paper) is that you get a negative print of the stamp. Above, you se al tools used. The tissue paper that is lying there remained unused, the brayer apparantly wasn’t clean enough when I used blue on it, the orange mixed too much with the blue.

 

How to decoupage a can:

First time I glued part of the can, as it might be easier to trim the excess paper off. But I started putting it on with a slight angle so I didn’t end well and had to take the paper off. Ofcourse, that meant glue on the paper – that was just as easy. So put decoupage glue on your tissue paper royally, spread with the foam brush. Work fast. Line up the can with the paper, and put the can down, picking up the first bit of the paper. Lift it all up carefully, and with a dry brush (I used an old toothbrush later on), carefully brush over the paper. Brush most wrinkels out, or leave them in (I should have left more in in hindsight, I like the wrinkles). Be sure to brush over the entire surface that needs to be glued and a bit around it so the paper follows the exact contours of the can. After this layer is on, you can use the foam brush to put some glue over it again, be careful you don’t move the tissue paper or break it. If you are patient (unlike me) you might want to wait till the first layers has dried. When you have covered the surface, the starting point is almost dry again. Get your torn pieces (see below) and put plenty of glue on the spot where you want to glue the pieces – put glue on a larger surface then your piece. Bits where there is not enough glue will not turn “transparant” as much, they’ll stay white and/or there will be air bubbles beneath it. Daqadoodles150227vr235143003

Stamped on a normal tissue paper, a Kleenex. You can see the layers of the kleenex on the upper red figure, only use the top layer. Tear the images out – torn edges blend into the background very well as the fibers vary in length / get thinner when torn. When you cut, you get a clean even edge, which makes it harder for the tissue to blend into the background.Daqadoodles150228za001024004

Here is my table with stome tools on it and a binder with the CB stamps.

Daqadoodles150228za001918010

added the small violet figures.Daqadoodles150228za002003011

Also added midnight blue peacock feather flowers.

Daqadoodles150228za002043012

And a large red figure with a violet one on top. Also visible is the inka gold which I used – on the bottom and top rim and random on the can.

Daqadoodles150228za090739019

Next morning. This is what the second tissue paper for the can looked like. A good impression on the paper is also achievable by putting the paper on the stamp and then rolling with  the brayer over it. The dvd was one that was just broken by my son by pulling ito ut wrong.Daqadoodles150228za120523020

I used the violet as background now, but it was too light, so the can was quite white still.

Daqadoodles150228za121054025

With inka gold.

Daqadoodles150228za121125027And inka gold on the wrinkels.

I still wasn’t convinced about the cans, so next time I used only 2 colours: 1 for the background, and 1 for the motif. The other colours woule be torn pieces decoupaged on.Daqadoodles150301zo075520028

Yup, I like these colours more. Hardly visible is the orange piece on the blue can – I noticed I didn’t take pictures of that side.

Daqadoodles150301zo075954030

The back of the red can. I didn’t use kleenex this time, but tissue paper. You can see it blended less well then the kleenex which was used on the can to the left. The right can doesn’t have torn pieces decoupaged on.  Daqadoodles150301zo080200033

The first can looks very rusty – the metal of the can, the orange and gold – it does look a bit too much like the can that had been outside for too long :P. The top can is too white, and too many colours still. The bottom cans look good, purple background and red motif, with blue and violet figures on it. The big can: blue motif, violet background and red and orange figures. If you think out  the red and use the colour combo: Midnight blue, vibrand violet, pumpkin and inka old gold it would have matched the colour challenge more.Daqadoodles150301zo223007002

Psychedelic Party

Here is my first entry for the chocolate baroque challenge:

Daqadoodles141005zo173001

Ever since I saw those swirls from the abstract fragments set I thought “retro”, though not quite (as that would be more geometric). Still, when this colour challenge was presented – brown, orange, yellow (and grey/cream/offwhite) I thought: yes, retro! (Not that I’m good at retro, or have ever made a retro thing, it’s just that now I had to try something new.

Stamped with distress ink ripe persimmon (or spiced marmalade?) then clear embossed, inked inside with vintage photo, mustard seed around it, fading via Scattered Straw to Pumice Stone.
Then embossed in a Tim Holz embossing folder (probably called Rays) – highlighted the rays a bit more with yellow, inked the edges with the orange.
Added the pearls to it (the first use of my premade batch, yay!) with the idea of adding a sentiment in between it, with the card rotated 90 degrees to the left. A word like: Disco! or: Party! Or: ” staying alive”

Problem: I didn’t have that sentiment, none of my alphabet stamps fit the theme, and couldn’t be bothered to spend another hour behind the pc looking for the appropriate font. I knew I would end up hourS behind the pc, not just one.

Time for a small test. I showed my partner the card as it was then, and asked him what he thought. I pretty much thought it breathed retro, or disco.
Do you know what he said?
Kermis. Carnival.
Uh what? How can you think that?
Well, the wavy thing, and the rays…
Ok, I said, and went back to the crafting table.

What more retro, disco, old but not vintage old? Hmm hippies? Flowers! Ok, flowers… I stamped the flowers on a separate sheet, dabbed some ink on my craftsheet and coloured the flowers. I cut them out (note that I don’t say fussy cut, as I didn’t, only the first half…. then I was too tired. But would you have noticed if I hadn’t said it?)

Played around a bit with the layout. But what to put in the middle? Still didn’t have a sentiment. But, I did have this big mushroom from my second Chocolate Baroque entry (actually I made that card first, but haven’t blogged about it yet. I’m not much for chronological order.) Yay, I could use left overs!

Hippie… drugs…mushroom…

Jaaah, and then I could use some of the fairyland stamps! “Welcome to fairyland”? “Let the adventure begin”? Those would have fitted equally well. How about “sprinkled with fairydust” for an added dose of psychedelics! Ofcourse, no way I could stamp that onto the embossed paper, so stamped it onto tissue paper, embossed it, and glued it. Oh, as you can see, I didn’t use the big mushroom – it didn’t fit. I made 2 new ones. (See how I use my leftovers?)
I sprinkled those with fairydust. That was possible because I had made a card with her first, you know, that second entry which I haven’t blogged about yet.

So that was my card, for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge. No idea who I would give this to. (And you know what my partner said when I asked him again what he though? “Still Carnival, sorry…”. Hm. I think I need to feed him some more mushrooms with some special fairy dust, maybe then he’ll see!.

Magic happens all around

I started this card not as a card, but just playing around with a new stencil (stars), distress paint budled sage, distress stain bronze and rusty hinge on green cardstock. Then I also tried out my new Sheena Douglas embossing folder – it started to look quite ok, maybe I could use it? It had an autumn feel to it, with the leaves and brown and glimmering colours. So I searched for some challenges to help me by adding some boundaries within which I would make something.

The themes of the challenges I chose were: Autumn/Fall, inspirational image,  make your own leaves, Anything but CAS, Frame it, use stamping on tissue paper and decoupage technique and use Design by Ryn stamps.. Some might have closed allready as I dind’t like the finished card untill today, when the room was brightyl lit and I stood a bit further away – the card was as intended. Very autumn like, a bit of an ancient feel to it because of the mosaique, the pillars and colours, and the fairy not that well visible. I wanted her to be transparent – only visible to those who look.

An autumn scenery in an interesting frame. Here it is:

Daqadoodles140925do130645

How I made it

I continued with the background by colouring in the leaves with barn door distress marker. I was wondering what to put on it – then I rememered the arch from a French Kissed card which I had laying around for ages, this looked like a card where I could use it. Imagine walking around in a forest, and stumbling on an ancient ruin where you witness this magical scene. I wanted it to be behind the embossing, so I put the card and arch on it’s place in the embossing folder, and then pressed with my hands only on the one pillar, rubbing that spot untill it was embossed as well. Then I knew where and how to cut it.

Next I stamped the fairy and squirrel with on tissue paper. It is one stamp, and I inked the body of the fairy with versafine grey and the squirrel, wings and nuts with stazon black. I coloured it (the fairy very lightly as she needed to be hardly visible) and glued it on. Unfortunately, my plan to make the fairy transparent succeeded. (uh what?) Yup. No fairy visible.

Daqadoodles140925do130742

See the plant? It used to be full of flowers, just lovely. My children liked the plant too…

The prettiest side to the house. I've got little vases on the table, for when the children pick flowers (usually with a very short stem) - they are filled with these now.

The emptiest side to the garden. In my kids defense, the stems break very easily.

So I restamped onto tissue paper, cut out only the body of the fairy and decoupaged it. If you look closely (don’t do it!) you can see that decoupaging tissue paper on the exact same spot is impossible. (As some parts of the fairy were a bit more visible). I higlighted the squirrel by drawing black lines and white lines in some places, also outlined the nbuts and wings a bit more so the contrast between them and the fairy would be bigger. I stamped and embossed the text, adding the white higlight there as well, and also highlighed some parts of the Arch and the big leaf.

Daqadoodles140925do130811

The leaves: The two big leaves in the upper rightcorner are from my stash, (sizzix die, and one leaf has moddeling paste through a leaves stencil) only coloured it a bit more red so it matched the card / autumn theme more. The 4 smaller leaves (Marianne Design die) were also from my stash, they are as old as the arch, which might be 3 years? ANyway, they were diecut from green cardstock on which I had stamped randomly in green and had aged it a bit with forest moss ink. It was too green for this card. I took some decopuage glue and followed the nerves of the leaf, let it dry and then ink it and add some perfect pearls copper on it. (The decoupage glue acted as a sort of rsist for the ink). The leaves were a bit lost in the corner, it needed something extra. That happened to be that piece of string that I found on the table (or ground)… no idea where it came from, maybe one of the kids found it outside, but it was great for this card 🙂

Daqadoodles140925do130845

In the lower left I pt mod melts figures, the middle leaf is Martha Stewart clay and the outer two are made with hot glue. Several layers of yellow, green and red acryllic paint (too yellow – add some red. Hmm too red, add some green. Too green, the yellow is gone! add some yellow etc’. Finished with perfect pearls copper.

I forgot an important part, the frame! Ofcourse I made that before glueing the leaves in place. Cut from pink cardstock, then added some metallic colour (I honestly can’t remember if it is acryllic paint or the new copper distress stain – I got so many things in copper colour as I love it!) I put a Crafter’s Workhsop stencil on it, used modelling paste, let it dry. When dry I replaced the stencil and painted it with distress paint. Let dry, adhere to the card, and on to the leaves.

Daqadoodles140925do130835

Last I wanted some more autumny things, and got out my paper pens. I don’t have the bright red, but the orange suited very well too to be little berries. I was trying some things out, like marbling with the paper pens, so they turend out to be more like mushrooms then berries, it’s up to the viewer to decide what they are 😉

Have a look at my second post to see the miniature marbled pearls which I made with my paper/gloss/perlen pens! (I have yet to write it, will be out late tonight at the latest).

I was worried that the card didn’t have enough contrast, the colours are very close to eachother. The frame was very light, so I dabbed an Black Sooth sponge on it which wasn’t inked, so just a tiny bit of black sooth. Not sure it is even very visible, I can’t really point it out now but at the time it seemed better.

It’s not really a card-card, it’s more like a small wallhanging. It’s A5 size so not too small.

Card display

Daqadoodles13_09_12_180112 Daqadoodles13_09_12_225418

A while ago I made a card display rack, meant for projects in progress. Or rather, cards that I still needed to finish, but when they were stacked away they didn’t get finished. I haven’t put the display rack back up after the move, but it didn’t really work in the way I hoped it would, it didn’t make me finish the cards faster :P.

Making the rack was fun though. It is made from a wooden childsafety fence for the bottom or top of stairs.

A T on both sides.

Indeed, just a “T”. That’s what I made a few years ago when I started decoupage.

I was curious how wrapping paper would look, but didn’t have anything at hand to decoupate, so I made a letter (T, the first letter of the name of my son) with some scrap cardbox, and then glued normal copy paper around it. I forgot why I did that. Maybe so I would have white as background colour? Or maybe the ribs of the cardbox were too visible? No idea. As I really thought it was just going to end up on the trashpile, I didn’t make it completely straight.

Obviously, it didn’t end up on the trashpile, it’s been hanging on the wall.

One side is decoupaged with pieces of ikea christmas wrapping paper (or was it Hema or V&D? I do remember I didn’t think it was very Christmas- like, but didn’t see anything else in the shop).

The other side also has that paper, but it also has IKEA napkins (the bird napkins) worked into them.

The pieces of paper do wrinkle a bit, but I didn’t mind for this project, and I don’t think I tried getting them on without wrinkles.

Anyway, here are pictures:

Copper Kisses

My choice and layout for now.

My chosen background and layout for now.

About a year ago (or was it more?) I had received several original vintage postcards with French Kisses on them, from Trishia of FrenchKissed Postcards. I had them in a drawer so they wouldn’t be damaged. Then I had them in a simple white frame (Nytta from Ikea) so I could see them.  I had bought several of these frames, with the intention of personalizing them. Well, I finally did.

Almost done! After this picture I might have added another layer and I took some cards out  and rearranged the remainder.

Almost done! After this picture I might have added another layer (or 2 or 3) and I took some cards out and rearranged the remainder. (Yes, pard of a wall is pained copper metallic!)

As often is the case with projects like this, I forget to take pictures at the start, so I only started taking pictures halfway through.

The starting frame is A3 size, white.

nyttja-wissellijst__0124867_PE281970_S4Nothing special.

I started with a layer of copper crackling paint from Viva Decor. It didn’t crackle very much though, I think the surface was too smooth/straight and the coat I applied was probably not thick enough.

Then I decoupaged the corners. And al ittle in the middle. I used roses napkins, flowers&birds napkins, and some decoupage paper.

After that coat I lightly put turquoise paint on it here and there, and swiped it off with a cloth so it would go in the cracks.

I thought the decoupage paper with the white background would be a nice touch, but I didn’t like it so I painted over it with copper metallic acryllic paint, and I might have applied even more decoupage pieces on it. Also, I thought the turqoise was too visible, so went over it also a bit with the metallic copper paint.

After I was done decoupaging, I added another layer of decoupage glue, and after that dried, I stamped some text on it. Sprayed with a bit of perfect pearls spray copper (from ranger) and finished it off with another layer of decoupage glue.

I might have added another layer in between (of glue, or copper paint), and I don’t think the copper spray had much effect.

I do like the end result! I put some of the cards in the frame allready and put it up, with the grey of the paper that came with the frame as backgroound . I still need to change that, because it doesn’t fit at all. I was thinking of making my own background, but just now while writing this, I’ve got a lightbulb moment: Use some of the wallpaper from the sample books I have! Easy peasy. I’ll go do that now, back in 15 minutes! (Have to take a picture too ofcourse). Meanwhile, take a look at my gallery of the frame-project. Lots of pictures to keep you busy.

I hope I put them in chronological order.

Ok, it was a bit more then 15 minutes. 30? 45? I forgot something important when guessing the amount of time it would take. And that is that I would have to choose a wallpaper….

Help me out here! Which background do you prefer?

A little bird to guide you through Wonderland

Strong heart

This was made for a friend who was overworked. I always assoiciate the colour turquoise a lot with her. She wears lots of different colours, but this colour is a bit exotic, outspoken, mysterious and elegant. So is she. Also this type of green matches good with her – in fact, everything on the card. Which isn’t strange, since I made this for her! The little bird is singing to the woman, songs of peace, of beauty. No reason, no “have to”, no pressure, a song of nature, of the creative spirit, without the shackles of today’s material society. The spirit of her artist-soul is singing to her.

It is made on a piece of wallpaper, a decoration strip/band. I embossed a thin piece of paper, having inked the embossing folder and sprayed it with water so the lower part (unembossed part) is inked and the raised part is till white. It takes a bit of trial an error to get the correct amount of water – too much and the raised bits will be inked too and the ink will run too much. Too little and it’s inky dots instead of an inked area. Due to the texture of the wallpaper I couldn’t stamp on it, so I stamped on tissuepaper instead and used decoupage glue to glue it on the walpaper.

DSC_7577

Work in progress

All stamped images are added that way, most of them in grey, only the bird in black. The key is a die cut, and the Art Nouvea lady is from a paper wrapping bag I got several years ago around some psotcards which I bought in the Art Nouveau museum in Salamanca, Spain. I stamped positive, encouraging words on it.

DSC_76161

I added some sparkling stones to her hair, as well as in the bird who she is looking at.

The size of the project is a bit bigger then A5, though smaller then A4.

I’ve made it a while ago, so can’t remember exactly what I used, but this should be approximately it:

  • Wallpaper band, printing paper, tissues, coloured lace, packaging of cards, brown paper, decoration woolstuff and those blingy-things Oh and some fake transparant glass stones.
  • Distress inkt: Shattered Straw, Peacock Feathers, one other colour? I’m in doubt about the shattered straw. But I’m sure about the peacock feathers. I love that colour. Or did I add Broken china? hmmm.
  • Versafine grey, stazon jet black, I’ not sure about the brown beneath the bird, Archival Vintage photo?
  • Perlen pen Kiwi
  • Dies: Marianne design key and English rose
  • Dies: Joy Crafts flower
  • Stamps: Christina Renee stamps.

(Yup, the same image as) What a difference auto-adjust lighting does for pictures!

I’d like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Behangen en gedecoupeerd Ikea ladekastje / Wallpaper Mod Podged Ikea Mini Chest of Drawers (Moppe)

Ik had dit: / I had this: Jaren geleden heb ik het blauw gebeitst. Het was lelijk, en stond altijd ergens uit het zicht. Nu heb ik het veranderd met behulp van behangproefstukken, mod podge en spuitverf op de zijkanten: / I stained it blue years ago. I didn’t like that, it was ugly and always stood out of sight. But now I turned it into this, with the help of wallpaper samples, mod podge and spray paint (on the sides, not visible):

De knoppen zien er nogal fluorescerent uit, maar in werkelijkheid niet hoor. Ze zijn helder en intens in kleur maar niet zoals ze eruit zien met flitslicht! Voor het geval je je afvraagt wat ik met de uitsparingen in de lades heb gedaan: Ik heb de lades omgedraaid. Ik heb nog steeds het idee om een keer een ander (passend) behang op die kant van de lades te plakken, dan kan ik de patronen afwisselen. Hieronder wat tussenstappen. / I know the knobs look very fluorescent but in reality they don’t seem that way. They are intense in colour but not as they appear on the photo’s with flashlight! In case you are wondering what I did with the holes in the drawers: I simply turned the drawers around. I am still thinking of putting another type of wallpaper (matching) wallpaper on that side so I can alternate the patterns ;).

Here some in between steps

Toen de boven en zijkanten aan de beurt waren om gedecoupeerd te worden heb ik me bedacht. Het leek met toch wat te druk. Ik heb de lades eruit gehaald, de voor en achterkant afgetaped en de zijdes wit geverfd met een spuitbus. Jammer genoeg zien de knoppen er niet uit op de foto, maar echt, zo zien ze er niet uit!  Ze zijn trouwens ook van de IKEA, ik had ze, in originele verpakking, al een jaar of 7 rondliggen. Nu eindelijk iets gevonden waar ik het bij kon gebruiken. / When it came to putting the wallpaper on the top and sides, I decided against it. I took out the drawers and taped off the front and back and spraypainted the top and sides glossy white. Unfortunately, on the pictures the knobs look horrible. But really that’s not their colour as I see them here! They are also from IKEA, I’ve had them in the original packaging for about 7 years? Finally found something to use them on.

Finished product. Horrible picture.

Versierde dozen / decorated boxes

Dit was gemaakt voor een 10-jarig meisje als een kerstcadeautje, zodat ze haar stukjes stof voor een nieuw populair speelgoed.

This was made for a 10 year old girl as a christmas gift, so she can store her fabric scraps for some new (hyped) toy.

No pictures of the process this time, but here’s what I used:

  • grote doos van Xenos / big box from Xenos (store)
  • klein doosje van Xenos / little box from Xenos
  • Decoratiepapier van Kruidvat / Decorative paper of a drugstore (al het papier op de deksels / all paper on the lids)
  • pailletjes
  • stof van een oude wikkelrok / fabric from an old wrap-skirt (blauwe stof op de grote doos / blue fabric on big box)
  • ecologisch touw van de Hema / rope from Hema (blauw wit touw / blue white string)
  • bloembladeren van een tas /  flowerleaves from a bag
