We had a fantastic time at the Great American Scrapbook Show and flew to AZ today to start our little vacation. We are here 2 more nights and will drive to Puerto Peñasco to watch Roger Clyne & the Peacmakers (Scott & Vicki's fave band) play on the beach.
I have a few photos from the show below but I first wanted to show you some knobs I decoupaged with paper from CD #3, Creating with Vintage Typography. I cut 4 of the dots from the text_dots_med paper shown below (click to see larger) and tried one from text_dots_med. You could cut circles from many of the papers.
I painted my knobs black for contrast and used Mod Podge to paint a coat on the top a knob with a sponge brush and while wet I attached one of the cut circles and painted a coat of Mod Podge over the paper.
I left the center knob as natural wood and cut a circle from the text_dot_big and inked the edges of the circle with Black Memento Ink and sprayed it with Krylon Matte Finish to seal the ink. It worked but I don't know if it will seal all stamping ink. I will test it when I get home and now I want to try stamping on knobs as our Clear Stamps will curve to stamp a rounded surface like these knobs.
My brain has been bombarded with ideas to stamp on knobs or decoupage copies of photos of my niece and nephew for their dressers, do some with pretty flowers, etc. Vicki made some knobs and used some as stoppers in altered bottles. You could revamp a tired dresser, attach them to cannisters, keepsake boxes and more.
Here are a few photos from the GASC show which was so much fun! See that cool dress form below? Vicki decoupaged this dress form and you can see all the close up shots and her details on how she did it here on her blog - plus some of the pretty knobs she made.
