Peony Phone Stand

Sizzix Scoreboards Phone Stand/Purse die, Spellbinders Shopping Bag dies (books), Papertrey Ink Glorious Globes books, The Ton Stamps Peony Memories, FolkArt Glitterific  Polka Dot Mint/Folk Art Matte White acrylic paint

This piece looks like spring around my corner of the world:  flowers covered with snow/sleet/ rain. 

I had no idea it would come out looking shabby chic (if you've seen my projects, that is waaaay out of my design genre ;) ).

It's one of those happy accidents for sure!

This phone stand was cut out of black chipboard (52pt) and painted with FolkArt matte white acrylic.

I stamped and glued the flowers to the stand, then glazed and protected it with the precipitation of FolkArt Glitterific Mint Polka Dot.

That's when the happy accident part happened...thepinkish glaze streaks in spots and the white peeks through.

I love it. There's a peek of the "innies"...a purse on one side and "books" (aka Spellbinder shopping bags without handles) tucked in the spacious nook.

I find it best to add a Glitterific coat (or any glazy look) on the smaller pieces after they have been assembled and glued/taped into place.

This glaze acts as an additional adhesive to hold the smaller pieces together near the lip.

I often use a combo of 1/2" Scor Tape and E6000 Glue between the smaller pieces so they hold together.

I've been actively using my stand and it seems to remain sturdy so far!
