Hiya there - today I have a new release to show you from Crafty Sentiments - they're being featured over on the inspiration blog for the next three days and will be in the stores on the 22nd. The one I'm using is called meeting friends..... and I have altered a mirror for my little girls using it - the mirror was from Ikea - and was gifted to me by a lovely blog buddy Rae (the girls had one each too - will add a picture when they have finished them).
I've done a step by step for you today too - hope you enjoy it! This is the finished product so you can see where we're heading!
And this is a close -up of the image - she's a sweetie pie!
Here's what I did to alter the frame:
First - although its not showing too well in the picture, I coated the frame with a thin layer of gesso - after blanking off the mirror. Then I added the purple acrylic paint - I've since started to use a sponge for these under coats - its so much faster and doesn't leave brush strokes.
Whilst the paint was drying I stamped and coloured the image then fussy cut it.
The next step was to apply stamping to the frame ( my fave Crafty Individuals script stamp), some gold pearl texture paste through the TH bubble stencil and some dreamweaver black embossing paste through a butterfly stencil from Imagination Crafts.
Finally I sprayed some flowers and diecut the clockface and added added everything to the frame.
I'd like to enter this into Brendas 5th-blogaversary-celebration candy challenge as I used my standby script stamp - I love this stamp!
Big hugs to you and thanks for visiting - hope you have a good day - we're busy today getting ready for Nana arriving tonight and shopping for Penny's birthday tea tomorrow and party on Sunday. Should be fun!
Big hugs and hope to see you again soon!
