I’m pretty sure Laura Carson and I are in agreement that we both love fans. Laura has made some lovely fans for Alpha Stamps in the past (see the bottom of her blog post for this new fan for links to some of them).
Do you remember the Fan-Shaped Book Swap we hosted a few years ago? (And we got some great submissions so check out that Gallery link.) Well, the new Venetian Fan Blades are reviving the same size & shape fan blades from that swap!
Laura’s new (large) fan today is built on these revivals (and inspired by the colors in the new Vintage Hollywood Paper Pads). Plus Laura created THREE new collage sheets with Deco babes to coordinate with the new papers and with both sizes of fans.
Here’s a bit from Laura’s tutorial (but visit her blog post, too, as she shows step-by-step photos):
Next, I used a black marker to draw a border around the blades
I glued the smaller fan blades to the bottom of the larger blades. (Note that the smaller fan blades are upside-down… you can see one at right, just above the red button at the bottom of the fan.)
I then punched a hole in one of the blades and used it as a template to mark and punch the holes in the remaining blades.
I cut out fans from the Deco Dames Collage Sheet and attached a Abez Drop/Connector to each fan. (Note: these connectors are almost sold out, but the Vintaj Metamorphosis Drop/Connectors are the same size and design, just in a different finish.)
I used a frame from the Elegant Frames Download set backed by more of the decorative paper to showcases lades from the Deco Dames Collage Sheet.
I decided to glue the fan blades in place instead of making it a working fan as this fan was for display. With gluing the blades in place you can add more dimensional embellishments.
More info (and tips and more photos!) in Laura’s blog and/or see her supply list for both fans.
