Planner Girl Artist Trading Coins ~ Inspired by Vera Lane Studio collage sheets

Hi everyone! Last week, Vera Lane Studio released a wonderful set of collage sheets called Planner Girl. One sheet has fabulous planner accessories and embellies. The other sheet in the set is two slightly larger groups of wonderful images with no words attached to them. This second sheet is the one I pulled from to create a set of 4 artist trading coins. These could also be used in your planner if a paper clip was attached to the back or if they were adhered directly to your page. They are cute as can be!

These girls were fussy cut leaving my standard narrow white border, and matted with black. They were each popped up with foam tape to add some dimension to these little 2.5 inch circles. Little gems and enamel dots were added to the hats, clothing, and eyes to add my own artistic voice to these already gorgeous collage images. I think that's my favourite part of making these.

The backgrounds were punched from gel printed or spray inked scraps from previous projects. A chipboard backing was also punched and added to the atcoin to add strength to it.

The wording for each coin was added with a ChitChat Sticker. The edges of each coin were inked with Archival Inks and either stamping with Archival Ink or Ranger Texture Paste added through a stencil were added. A  black border was added to each coin with Pitt Pen using a different style for each.

Thanks for joining the Planner Girls and me today. To check out these beauties and the other amazing collage sheets and images available, be sure to drop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop.
