Roaring Twenties Fan by Julie Dandy


This week I have transformed the large Tando fan in to a Gatsbyesque 20's fan fit for any fashion conscious flapper!!

I tried to use lovely deco style colours

What I used:

Silver Inka Gold
Alcohol Inks and Silver Metal Mixative - Stream, Denim and Meadow
Lace, Wire, Ribbon and a Beaded Tassel

Here's how to:

Start by dabbing the frame of the fan with the embossing ink and coat with the black embossing powder and heat. Set to one side for now.

Cut out the Whiteout to fill the gaps by using the removed sections as a template - remember to make them slightly larger so that they go behind the frame when assembled.

Stamp the images on to 4 of the Whiteout pieces with the Archival ink. When dry, use the alcohol inks to colour the images, be careful not to remove the original image and don't overload your brush, as it will spread and take away the Archival ink.

Dab on the alcohol inks on to the remaining Whiteout shapes, to create a pretty marbled type effect.

Use the Inka Gold or other silver paint to cover the edges around the frame and the base piece of chipboard.

Glue the Whiteout to the baseboard (I used Glossy Accents), then glue on the frame.

Then finish off with your embellishments - I used sections of lace at the top of the fan, and lace underneath a wirework fan I made myself. Then finished off with ribbon and a tassel from my stash.

Only two more pieces to go!!!

I wonder what they will be :D

See you next week,
