Mixed media bracelet- 1st trial!!!

Heya folks,

After not being able to craft for a few days coz of family health issues, I am back in action.

And yup I have a exciting news to share!!! I am part of a very talented design team at Bob N Betty.


And they have a huge variety of good quality pattern papers to offer. I  had a hard time while choosing the papers to work with for this month.

I chose one of the papers from Vintage bloom set. VIBL009
I simply love the floral pattern and the vintage look of the paper.

So here's what I created with this pattern paper. I am soooper happy with the way its turned out!!! Though its my first trial at it I think that the way the end product looks, it was worth the effort!!!
I made a mixed media bracelet using this pattern paper.

Here's a small pictorial as to how I made this!!!

1) I cut the pattern paper into smaller strips of different widths.

2) Covered a desired shape with plastic wrap.

3) Wrapped the pattern paper strips onto the plastic wrap covered bottle.I used decoupage matte glue to adhere the strips together. I placed the strips in a fashion such that the flower pattern is more prominent.

4) I gave it a gesso wash using a dry brush.

5) Used stencils- The crafters workshop ( harlequin and Art is) and added texture using modelling paste at random areas. Gave a nice coating of decoupage matte glue to seal the surface.

6) Once everything was dry, I started assembling my focal spot using various embellishments using various colours of flowers from my stash and to zing it up a bit added a metal chain that runs through the back of the metal sunflower to the side of the bracelet. Used viva decor Inka gold- gold paint to highlight a few areas of the textures added!!! Also used two Studio G stamps (mini flower and mandala design) to add in a little more interest at random places on the bracelet!!!

7) The final step was cutting the bracelet open at a point exactly behind the focal point. After trimming of the edges added a soft padding to the inner surface of the paper so that its comfortable to wear. Last but not the least added Brown ribbon so that the bracelet can be used on various wrist sizes and voila its ready!!! :D

Here are a few closeup views of the final bracelet!!!

And here's me wearing the bracelet :D Ofcourse I had to try it on :D

Here's a closeup as to how it looks when worn :D :D

Hope you enjoyed my process of making the bracelet. Do leave me some love and suggestions.
