Paper Strip Vignette Panels

Hello friends,

Another project using new products from the 2024 idea-ology release. This trio of small wood panels was inspired by the new Paper Strips. I honestly loved the idea of the Paper Strips, but didn't know how fun it would be to use them till I started this project. These Vignettes could be easily hung on a wall or just simple stacked for display (the largest square is 5.5 x 5.5").
The Paper Strips come in a bag with 89 pieces. Each strip is 6" long and there are three widths. 
You can line them up any way you like. I decided to make each of the three Vignettes a little different, by creating a different patterns on each. The Paper Strips go on easily with Collage Medium. The weaving takes the most time, only because you have to keep them tight to create the pattern (but it's totally worth it).
I decorated each of the square with more idea-ology. I did use thin foam squares to raise things like the dragonfly from the Layers Organic pack and the Paper Doll.
The Salvage Heart was covered in Silver Mixative then aged with Walnut Stain Distress Crayon. The painted metal flower is from the new Adornments, Sweetheart pack. And don't forget how cool the new Cello Sticker Tape is. The frame is actually glued down but I still added tape over the top.
The pink baseboard piece from the Junk Drawer pack was perfect to add under her elbow as a resting place. I purposefully added the paper strip that says, "my dearest" at the bottom so it would show in the final piece.
Once I was satisfied with all the pieces, I splattered the surface with white paint before setting them aside to dry.
These are SO SIMPLE to make. A great place for a beginner or someone that wants an afternoon project. 
Now carry on,
