Mother's Day Vintage Style Fan Video Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share a beautiful and very thoughtful gift to give for Mother's Day, or any Summer time occasion.  These are quick and fun to make, and the addition of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts will add so much detail and dimension without adding the bulk.

I have made a step-by-step process video showing every step of the way to making one of these beautiful fans.  I am using lots of embossing powder and 3D paint techniques, and I will share a few tips or pointers for working with chipboard and making the fan in general.  This video is especially good for beginners as well as experienced crafters.


Supplies Used:

GSL Flourish Frame Sienna
GSL Leaf Medallions
GSL Scribble Frame Butterfly
Wavy craft sticks (Hobby Lobby)
Recollections Mixed Media 12x12 paper pad (Michael's)
Fan Base pattern (below)
Xyron Creative Station
DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic
  Phthalo Green-Yellow
Natural Fiber Assortment (Paper Studio)
Jacquard Lumiere Gold Pearl Dimensional Paint
VersaFine Ink Pad - Smokey Gray
Emboss It Clear Dabber (Ranger)
Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel
Chunky Rust Embossing Powder (Emerald Creek/Seth Apter)
Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue

You should be able to click on the pattern and it will enlarge, then click on it again to save as a download.  Then find the pattern in your downloads folder and print it out.
