What fun this was! Alpha Stamps is holding a fan blade swap and I decided to participate. Altering chipboard fan blades is a little out of my comfort zone, but I’m been trying to stretch my artistic wings lately and try new mediums. So, this was the perfect time.
What was needed: Five fan blades and collage sheets from Alpha Stamps (required) and then any embellishments you wanted to use. Since I didn’t have the fan blades nor the correct collage sheets, I went online, placed my order, sat back, and waited for it to arrive.
Once it arrived, I got started. Since I met the requirements of using Alpha Stamps Fan Blades and their Perfume Collage Sheets, I was free to use anything else I wanted. Out came the Gauche Alchemy products. Here, I used their Paper Napkin Art Kit as the background for two of my blades.
These other two were made using products I either happened to have on hand or had ordered from Alpha Stamps.
You’ll notice the blades are not finished at the very bottom. This is so that after they are swapped and everyone has their five new blades, they can be combined to make one fan and the bottom will need to move smoothly.
Here they are all together:
After these photos were taken, I went back and used Stickles on all of them. MUCHO improvement! Covered those raw fan blade edges like a dream.
Got to run! Until later…………………………….
