Creating with accent pieces

Hi everyone! 
My project today is a wall hanging using Creative Paperclay ivy leaves and word tiles glued onto a corrugated substrate.

The first thing I did was to cut out around the grass and butterfly images and remove the top layer of cardboard paper revealing the corrugated ripples underneath. Then I made some ivy leaves from a punch mold, painted them with a mixture of ColourArte Primary Elements and DecoArt's Decou-Page and adhered them to the card board with a dimensional glue.
The dimensional glue really sinks down into the ripples to gives your paperclay accent pieces durability.

Next, I used a metal ruler to slice some layers from a chunk of Creative Paperclay and then cut the layers up into tiles. I used rubber letter stamps to press the words into the Paperclay while it was still moist and set the tiles in my oven to harden. ( I like to set mine in the oven while it is cold, then turn it on to 275, as soon as the preheat buzzer goes off I turn the oven off and leave it in there overnight. )

The next day, after they are hardened I trimmed any ragged edges with my scissors and used an emery board to smooth down any rough edges.

After painting the tiles I adhered them with the same dimensional glue to the corrugation.

I love how the  Creative Paperclay really shows all the small details so well.

Thanks for stopping by!
