I created an arrow triptych art piece combining the Adirondacks Digital and Deluxe paper kits.
Scroll to the bottom of this post for details on how I created this triptych.
Your next stop on the Hop is the talented Roni's Inkstains Blog!
Select and crop three arrows from the Adirondacks Digital collection and place them onto an 8.5x11" background with a digital scrapbooking software. I use iScrapbook for Mac.
Print the arrows onto the backs of five assorted 8.5x11 papers from the Deluxe kit. Note: I trimmed down three 12x12 papers from the collection to create 8.5x11" papers.
Cut out three different arrows from three different colored papers with a craft knife and cutting mat. Note: The black printed arrows will not be visible on this project, as I am using the opposite side.
Fussy cut some of the details from other arrow colors and decorate the arrows as desired. Attach these small pieces with Club Scrap's Bookbinding Glue in a Needle-tipped Applicator.
Match up two panels (with opposite grain directions) and laminate them together with Bookbinding Glue, creating three double thickness panels. The varying grain directions will create a much stronger base.
Mark each panel at 3" from the tops and 1/2" from each side. Punch holes with a paper piercing tool.
Insert brads into the back side of each panel and wrap with brown waxed linen thread, included in the Deluxe kit fiber pack, to create a hanger. The splayed feet of the brads will be on the front of each panel.
Cover each triptych pizza box panel with a 2.75x11.75" paper.
