Onesie recycling



Another weekend with social scrapping! Also featuring: gypsie music, karaoke, wine,different types of "dots", a lot of laughter and heart sprinkled cake - that's another story better not shared outside the Papir i hjertet designteam ;) *LOL*

Well, I actually had planned to scrap A LOT (as usual) but AS USUAL the hours seemed to contain jetfuel and went away in a supernatural speed. During this weekend I found my alter ego - that is to be revealed a bit later;) *giggle*

This onesie is the result of the 4th round of LSS. We're now just 8 contestants remaining, so it'll be exciting to see who actually will be the Last Scrapper Standing. This time we were supposed to (ab)use fabric. I wanted to scrap ON fabric instead of using fabric on a LO, so I found one of Jarle's onesies that doesn't fit anymore. It was hard to get a photo that really shows the intention and idea behind this work - the circle down to the right is actually a mirror. The title means "How big I am now:". The picture shows Jarle at 3 months, and he's supposed to look in the mirror as he gets older - always able to see how big he is right now; comparing his look at 3 months.

I've dyed the onsie with different types of ink: Luminarte Shimmering Mist, Distress Ink and Posh Rainbow Dye Ink. You'll also see some hand stitched fabric behind the photo along with some lace and fabric flowers. I added some tulle to the hand made hanger to create some kind of nostalgic look.

So: why scrap on plain paper when there are so many possibilities? My head is spinning with ideas - and a hunger for time to put them to life.....

Denne er rålekker. Vil gjerne lifte denne av deg, hvis det er greit. Tenkte å gi det til ei venninne av meg i gave til bursdagen. Lurte bare på hvordan du fikk festet ting på bodyen? Speilet, blomstene, bildene osv?

Takker for inspirasjons blogg.

Hilsen Kine

Trine Blix said...

Takk for det, Kine!

Jeg ser på all scraplifting av det jeg lager som en ære - så det må du gjerne gjøre! Og jeg ser gjerne resultatet ditt også ;)

Som du ser, så er det en del stoff rundt - jeg har sydd fast det som går an å sy fast, i tillegg er det noen tynne gluedots og noe tekstillim. Bildet er limt på stoffstykket som igjen er sydd fast på bodyen. Speilet har et par gluedots bak + at jeg har sydd fast blonden. Trefigurene er sydd fast bak stoffblomstene - de sydd fast i samme tråd.

This is gorgeous! Someone else shared it on http://www.paperartistsonline.com and I've got to direct other people over here! I'm hosting a challenge for people to use the Ranger Posh Inkabilities Rainbow Sponge Inks this month at the RangerInkLinks yahoo group and I just know you'll inspire them to think outside of the box with the challenge!

Thank you so much for showing this great piece!

Så FANTASTISKT vackert och uppfinningsrikt! Hoppas det är ok att jag visar upp och länkar till dig i min blogg?

Oj så läckert! Definitivt att denna idé kommer att bli liftad. Sista barnet växer ju så det knakar och man vill ju ha nånting kvar för att minnas hur små dom va en gång i tiden :D
