For my Kinda Krafty project today I created a simple wall decor item to hang in my scrap space. I'm such a huge fan of kraft, and I especially love it when complimented with black, white, and a pop of color.  The bluish-greenish color will coordinate wonderfully with the color scheme of my space!


I really love the patterns on these papers. In fact that's what inspired me to create a wall decor item for today's project- I wanted the papers on display instead of tucked away in an album! For that reason, I steered away from my layering tendency and kept it simple. This is a case in which I felt less was more.


A little bit of the awesome Bella bling here and there added the perfect amount of sophistication that I was looking for.


Butterflies, florals, and crowns- so fitting for a woman cave, dontcha think? :)


The "Bliss" letters were originally kraft color, but I wanted them to be white to stand out more. I simply applied a coat of gesso, and when that was dry, I dabbed on some modeling paste for texture.

While the Bella bling is self-adhesive, I reinforced their stickiness with Therm O Web's Zots just to be sure!


Supplies:

Below is the awesome Kinda Krafty prize package that Ruby Rock-It will be giving away on their blog to a random commenter there:
