SIMON SAYS MONDAY CHALLENGE Anything goes
Craft Hoarders anonymous messy, inky, paste, stencils
My entry for the above challenges this time took some doing. Everything I end up with tends to be a bit dark so I wanted something pastel this time..............Not sure what the head honcho at Ranger towers would make of this pastel confection.
Not quite so keen myself on it
BUT HERE IT IS SHABBY VINTAGE FRAME
The frame started out a very dark forest green, one of those things that have been lurking around for years. I coated it in white acrylic then sprayed with the inks pictured. this was scary bright. To give it some sheen and dull it down I mixed WHITE with some IRIDESCENCE MEDIUM. and it looked like this
Clear embossing paste mixed with rock candy glitter.
I also stencilled on the frame and then covered with glitter
If your gilding wax has set, put a few drops of TURPENTINE or PAINT THINNER inside and leave a few hours, stir with the butt end of a paintbrush to use.
Had huge trouble sticking them on, wanted them to be really stuck as I find glue dots dry out and fall off. Eventually I used some 2 part expoxy resin, fast set but still not that fast. They had to be weighted with texture paste jars
