the Altered Pages Design Team
is excited to be working
with products from
MD Hobby & Craft
Today Karen Conner has create an upcycled frame she transformed into an earing holder using a MD Hobby & Craft metal sheet.
The mat got a base coat of gesso, set aside to dry. Add dimension with texture paste and a stencil to the corners. The metal sheet cuts easily with a guillotine cutter, cut metal to the size needed to fit behind the mat. Rub blue metallic wax paste with an old t-shirt over most of the metal sheet.
Color the image from the Altered Pager Ziegfeld Girls collage sheet with a q-tip and Niji Oil Pastels, gently rub with finger to blend.
Color the mat with grey gelato, then add blue gelato. Use slightly damp paint brush to add the gelatos. It has a nice water color look. If you water it down too much - you can add more gelatos and keep blending. Once satisfied, add white gelato to the raised texture paste areas.
Here is a short video of the finished project:
I simply LOVE how it turned out. No telling how many pairs of earrings I'll be able to fit on there!
