Graphic 45 Magic Of Oz Wall Decor

Happy Monday!! Hope you all had an outstanding weekend full of joy!  Today is officially the first bus ride and full day of Kindergarten for my daughter Skyler!!  Sitting here a little teary eyed, excited and scared for her all at the same time.  Hoping she has better school experiences than I did, and just sad she has grown up so fast.  Where does the time go??? 

Well if I have anything to do with it, it goes to creating, creating, creating after spending as much time possible with family.  And today I have a one of a kind creation to share with you!
Lately I have been really hooked on creating dimensional wall art.  Dabbling a little here and there since last year, I have found that truly, Graphic 45 makes the best papers for this occasion.  With images that are so unique, romantic, playful and just great for telling a story. 
And what better story to tell than the Magic of Oz!


Created using dimensional letters, set on a classic black textured Coordinations/Graphic 45 Cardstock, making the colors really pop.  All set inside of a 12x12 frame.  But what makes this so fun, are all the little cut Graphic 45 images and the yummy Imaginarium chipboard!

Instead of spraying my chipboard pieces with a glimmer mist, I used Smooch to paint right over top giving it a great solid, bright shimmer that doesn't look washy! 
*TIP* when placing dimensional objects in hands of pop dotted images, stick the object directly into the pop dot foam.  This will help give it support!


These fun little Ruby Slippers can be found at www.Gardenspellghosttale.etsy.com


Love the little banner that says "The Great, The Terrible, The Wizard", cut out of Goblin Gazette. 
Just fit so perfect on his hot air balloon.  And the way he is speaking and pointing he looks like such a tyrant!


And what Oz Collage would be complete without Flying Monkeys????
Flying over a bright moon ascending over blackened clouds. 


There is definately No Place Like Home to hang these fun wall hangings!!
