Hot Air Balllon with my eBrush by Craftwell USA


Hello! Peggy here to show you my Hot Air Balloon with the help of my eBrush!
Supplies used today are: 
  • eBrush by Craftwell USA
  • Spectrum Noir Markers GB2, FS9, PL5, HB3, PL2,TN1
  • Double Sided Designer Papers
  • Distress Tool
  • Cardboard
  • Double sided tape
  • Crystal Laquer
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Lace
  • Trim
  • Flowers/Wire
  • Gesso
  • Needle and Thread
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Punch
I started with a template that I drew so each piece including the foundation would be the same. 
I made a 3D foundation. One solid piece (whole balloon) and two halves for sides to make it 3D. I folded my template in half to make sure each half was identical as well as being able to fold it when tracing. I used the uncut straight edge of my cardboard to trace one side at a time  to ensure a flat edge to glue down to my one piece of base. (as opposed to cutting one in half) 

I traced my template onto the cardboard foundation and cut. 
I then used my template to cut out each piece of patterned paper and adhered the paper with double sided tape. I used a distress tool on all pieces of paper including the base.  




I cut out 15 balloon shapes out all together. Two for the base and the rest I distressed and folded in half. Since my base gave me four sides, I placed three sets of folded designer card stock in each placing them side by side.
I used white gesso to cover up any of the brown corrugated cardboard I could still see. 
After distressing all papers it was time to take out the eBrush! I used FS9 to give all of the edges a glow.
I used my ruler to measure one inch marks that gave me five holes and I sewed the signature like pages together three at a time. I sprayed just the edges. 
I used Crystal Lacquer and hot glue to adhere the balloons into place. Then it was time to dress it up! 
 I used Crystal Lacquer to adhere the trimmings to the cardboard base. I used vintage lace around the center which helped to keep the pages evenly spaced. Sewing really helped the pages stay evenly in place.
I had some small silk flowers to which I added some paper covered wire and I eBrushed them with Spectrum Noir markers HB3 and PL2. I cut out a couple of butterflies from the paper collection and eBrushed them with GB2.
I created a small box out of 4x4" paper scored at ever inch on all sides.  I attached that to the bottom of the air balloon to which I added some ribbon eBrushed with TN1.  I used a fiskars trim punch with the matching papers for the small box. I brought it all together and I think it turned out smashing! I think this will be given as a gift this weekend.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I encourage you to try out this fantastic tool call the eBrush. It is so versatile with each changing project.
Have a Great Day!
Peggy
