Old file folder

1. Begin by adhering scraps to your journal page with a light coat of white gesso.

2. Stamp the mannequin onto the file folder and heat emboss it. Make a second one for a mask so you can stamp the wings without getting any ink on the main image.
 I liked the way the gold ink looked on my mask, so  I decided to use it - and made another one as well on scrap paper!

Once the mannequins were all cut out, place them on the page and trace around them with the black pencil, smudging as you go.

Cut some tulle and rip some areas, creating holes & jagged edges.
Adhering it on the page was not easy! I used matte gel on my finger to press it down; but once an area started sticking down, then everything else was easier. While the gel was wet,  sprinkle on the glitter and use the heat gun to dry everything.
Add a pencil lined border and finish by adding the sentiments.

The embossing powders really make the mannequins stand out!

I wish you could see the sparkle of the fine glitter in person!

This was a fun project that turned out differently than I had originally planned - once I get going, I think of other things to do & I end up in another direction!
