Washi your Face

                                  Washi Your Face

Hello everybody. 
This year has started off with some wonderful things happening for me. I am so thrilled to be Jane Davenport and her lovely  husband, Angus' little helper. 
If you're a Davenpeep, you've probably seen or heard from me quite a bit in Jane's Facebook groups.

I am also enjoying all of the art shared in these groups and playing with Jane's very own mixed media art supply range brought out in JANEuary. I've been having a ball playing with all of her art supplies myself, and, as I'm about to share with you all, I had a wonderful crafter-noon recently when I created my 'face spinner' with Jane's wish tapes in her Butterfly journal. So..........if you'd like to make one of your own, here's what you will need and a 'how to' create your very own. I hope you have fun. 

JDMM "Miss Match" washi tapes
JDMM Paper Pad 2 pages
JDMM Butterfly Journal/optional
Sizzix die cutting machine
Sizzix "picture wheel" die , or a viewfinder cartridge to use as a template. 
craft knife
needle like piercing tool
white card stock ( or your choice of colour) 
small brads
double sided tape or glue stick

Step 1:  
Draw around your 'picture wheel' and mark out the windows. 

Step 2:

Tear the individual images from the washi roll and place over the windows you marked out. 

Cut out your 'swimsuit girl' from the cover of Jane's Paper Pad.

After cutting out the image from the front page of Jane's Paper Pad, use a die cut from your 'picture window' die  and trace out the face ready for cutting out. 

Step 4:
Make another picture wheel from your card stock to glue over the faces wheel you've created. 

Step 5:
Once glued together, using a needle like tool,  pierce the centre of the wheel in the BACKING page making sure the window cut out is aligned. 
Mark out the hole in the centre of the chosen paper pad BACKING page once folded in half. Fold the flap of the FRONT page over at the top to fit into the Butterfly journal. This gives you a smooth 'spinning' wheel' hold. 
NOTE: Jane's paper pad pages are a little larger than the inserts which allow for a fold over at the top. Also, make sure that you  allow the tip of the picture wheel to hang out at the side a little in order to allow for spinning as shown below. 
Trace out the window which should be centred at the top of the  FRONT page for cutting out. Once you cut out that window, align your swimsuit girl with her face window cut out so as you spin the wheel, all ace are visible.

Step 6:

Use the brad to secure the picture wheel to the BACK page.
Here's what it should look like. 
Picture wheel in-between the  FRONT folded page and a BACK page. 

Step 7:

SO. once the picture wheel is secured, the faces line up with the front girls face window, you can secure the pages together with more of Jane's washi tapes. 

Step 8:

Here's how she should look. 

I hope you've enjoyed this crafty spin on using Jane Davenport's mixed media range, and I hope you too can create one of your very own. 

Till next time
