Gypsy Screen–Another Alpha Stamps Guest Designer Project

We were given a package of chipboard pennants and asked to use at least four in a project.  Well, you saw my previous project where I used several.  This one here is actually the first one I completed and I decided to use the four pennants to make a folding screen.

So, using tons of Gypsy papers, collage sheets, and embellishments from Alpha Stamps, the below is what I came up with.  Yes, the screen is double-sided.  Just click on the pictures to view them in a larger size in a separate window.

Small hinges were applied with glue and then beads where used to cover the holes.  The chipboard was too thin to allow for the nails that were included with the hinges.  The gypsy’s veil was covered in clear Stickles to add shimmer.  The fringe is from Alpha Stamps.

I found some sequin string in my stash and decided to use it to outline the picture on the left.  The frame on the right is from Tattered Angels.

Black roses from my stash and silver stickers (not currently in stock) from Alpha Stamps were used in the first picture.  The brass scroll at the top and the dominoes in the second picture are also from Alpha Stamps.

Here, I used a small plastic embellishment at the top with a metal rose adhered to it and then the Fortune stamp from Alpha Stamps, stamped in gold ink and adhered it to the bottom.

This was a very fun project to do.  I’d never made a screen before so used one I had sitting on one of my work desks as an example.  The trick was to alternate the placement of the hinges.
