Paisleys & Posies Peacock Art
When I first saw the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and framelits I knew I wanted to create a peacock from them. I instantly fell in love. #1- I love peacocks. #2- I want to make all things peacock. #3- This stamp set jumped out at me and I knew I wanted it. Although the paisleys make great Fall themed cards and projects, they can also be used in layering and creating anything from flowers to animals- punch art of sorts.
To make the peacock framed art I grabbed a piece of 12 x 12 White card stock, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi card stocks and started stamping and die cutting. If you want to recreate this too, you’ll want to cut the card stock in half to 4 1/4″ and stamp about five of each of the large and medium paisleys and circle medallions (both sizes) in each color. I also stamped some in Versamark and white heat embossed on colored card stock. Die cut all of the pieces and start piecing them together to find a good fit.
For the Peacock body and plume, you’ll want to layer dimensionals under each layer and adhere each feather with dimensionals. Stamping: start from the body and attached feathers and stamp your way down, out and to the sides with the larger stamps first, filling in with medium and then smallest stamped images.
Finally, after it is all stamped, dimensionaled down and adhered to the 12 x 12 mat it’s time to embellish. The feathers are embellished with dimensionals, rhinestones, Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, and Bermuda Bay sequins pulled off of the sequin trim.
Here is a close up of the peacock body made of paisleys.
