I'm rather excited today as I am October's guest designer over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit where the challenge is always about Altered Art. It is a lovely place to play!
As you may know we are involved in a whole house renovation. Is there ever a finish line?
When I saw this cover from a discarded Wallpaper Sample book I got a bit excited!
I knew that with the wonderful paints and other products that I have that this would be perfect for the Moroccan theme I have embarked on.
I painted right over the design with a variety of acrylic paints. I did not stress if the edges were not perfect.
I then took a number of small stamps and used the new Midi Stazon's in a few colours. Again this was to be a base and I did not need perfect placement.
I have used Viva Decor Pearl Pens to pearl every outline. Yes it takes a little while to do but the result is so worth it! Tip - Test every colour before you use it on your project. Each pen has a different consistency!
I wanted a rich jewelled look so I added Bling ...lots of bling! I had in mind those beautiful enamelled ornaments I love but can never afford.
There are now four pieces which have pride of place in our dining room. All created from discarded wallpaper sample covers.
I'll show them to you next week as right now I'm web loading. MANY new release Viva Decor Products are winging their way here to Time To Create right now. There's so much to explore and get excited by that's for sure!
As a guest designer for Rhedd's Creative Spirit I get to visit the entries and comment so why don't you play along this month. I'd love to see what you do!
Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge
Addicted To Stamps and More - Photo --- for me it is the colours of the flowers. The orange colours are out in my garden in the wonderful clivea and hippeastrum beds.
Premium Craft Brands - Embossing --- not embossed in the traditional sense but the effect I have is very similar.
Sunday Stamper - Shading ----yes that is what I was aiming for!
