Emerald Creek Crafts Flowers On The Wall Altered Picture Frame

Hello all
I am up on the Emerald Creek Crafts blog this month with an altered frame. Check out how i made this bellow.

Products used
DecoArt Black Gesso
DecoArt Metallics Festive Red
DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic Burgundy

Take a cheap plastic frame, mine is from Poundland which is like Dollar store.
Cover whole frame in a few coats of black gesso.

Once the gesso has fully dried, paint on red metallic paint.

i created the roses by pressing paper clay into a silicone mold and then backing them until they set.
I then painted them in burgundy and brown acrylic paint. Before the paint dried i sprinkled on the embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun.

Ephemoire Magical Flying Macarons Artist Trading Block

Hi all
I am back with another project for Ephemoire. This time i have an Artist Trading Block using the Magical Flying Macarons and Fairies Kit.

Product links

First of all you need to put the MDF ATB together and then paint it. Next use a nesting die to cut the papers to the correct size and stick those on.

Cut out all the bits and just stick them on with 3D foam tape.
Glue lace around the bottom.
Cut out the big fairy and then glue a dress pin to the back.
now take a cork, paint it, glue it on the top and stick the fairy in it.
Add Flying Macarons everywhere. 
Glue pink cabochons around the top of the ATB.

Bleeding Art Challenge Rusty Picture Frame

Hello all

It is time for a new challenge over at Bleeding Art and this month the theme is Anything Goes.
I altered a picture frame which must of been lying around the house sor 4 years lol. I am determined to use up all this stuff.

I used DecoArt Texture Sand Paste, Quinacridone Gold Acrylic, Black gesso and Americana Decor Metallics Bronze.

First paint the whole frame in black gesso as this will stop the paint coming unstuck.
Once that has fully dried,Paint over a coat of bronze paint. It doesn't matter if a bit of the black gesso is showing as this adds to the grungy look. Finally take the texture sand paste and add it to the details on the frame. Paint the textured bits with quincodone gold paint.

Gecko Galz Steampunk Artist Trading Block

Hello all
This week i have a Artist Trading Block to share using digital papers and collage sheets from Gecko Galz.

Products used
DecoArt Texture Sand Paste
DecoArt Quincodone Gold Premium Acrylic Paint
ATB 3 inch and 5 inch Fernli Designs

I started off by using a square cutting die to cut out the paper pack to fit the ATB.
Next i added texture sand paste around the edges of the block and once set, i painted it with Quinacridone Gold Acrylic Paint.

I repeated the previous steps with the wings and clock parts too.
I then cut out the clocks and glued them on.
 Then added the rusted embellishments.

I reused a cotton bobbin that i had lying around from an old project. Ijust painted the top and base before adding the doll to the top. I added a large blob of texture sand paste and then pressed a piece of MDF in so i could prop the doll up.

Colourcraft Guest Designer Galaxy Effect Card

Hello all

I am guest designer today and i am going to show you how to make a space themed card.

Start off by mixing a bit of Black Brusho Powder in with water. Then take a makeup sponge and dab it onto a card blank. Leave white spaces so that you can add other colours later.

Next take Turquoise, Purple and Crimson Red Brusho powders and sprinkle them on. wet with water so they spread out. Dry off with a heat gun on a low setting so you don't blow the ink off the card.

i discovered that the SprinkleIt powders create this milky way sort of effect when sprinkled onto a dark background so sprinkle away until you have this dense night sky look. Add it while the ink is wet so it stays put. You can get this fabulous stuff here  and the brusho powders are here.

Next add a stencil over the card.
I used a tiny splatter one but it started to come out chunky so i then took a paint brush and flicked on some white paint. mix the paint with water to get a fine spray.

Lastly i coloured in the stamps with markers and glued them onto the card along with a sentiment.
