Altered Eclectics: Be Yourself!

Hello!

I can't believe we are already into February, time flies when you're having fun!

That must also mean that it is time for a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics, click HERE to go straight over to the blog.  The only projects not allowed are cards and ATC's so if you love altering items and mixed media please share your wonderful projects.

For my design team project I altered an MDF art board from Bee Crafty...


The base was put together then primed with gesso before adding some stencilling with a honeycomb stencil from Bee Crafty and some Decoart crackle paste.  I then used Decoart paints and Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays for the colour plus some gold Pebeo gilding wax.
The clock was decorated in the same way and is also an MDF piece from Bee Crafty.  Once the clock was added to the board I used microbeads in 3D gel to add a rusty look...


Teal spray inks were used to colour some of the cream paper roses to match the rest of the project then added to the board along with some foliage and rusty wire.
Finally some butterflies were stamped from a Bee Crafty set using versamark and gold embossing powder then coloured with Spectrum Aqua Markers.  The sentiment was stamped out in the same way also from Bee Crafty and added in strips to the board...


The other design team members also have projects which you can read more about on their individual blogs so do please take some time to have a look and leave them a comment.

I will be back on Friday with another mixed media piece and then on Saturday there is a new launch of HunkyDory stamps!!

See you soon,
