I DREAM OF PARIS....

So by now you may have gotten tired of my Paris themed projects.  I am really drawn to the theme.  My dream is to one day I will visit there!

This is a work in progress... Not finished with my ATB, I am loving how it is looking.  What do you think?  I will share the finished ATB on the blog this coming week, be on the lookout for it!

Supplies:
ATB - Artist Trading Block
Butter Creamy Dixie Belle Chalk Paint From DIY Design Studio
Metallic Rub-on Cream
French Ruban Fantasie Trim
Adhesive - Glue
Eiffel Tower Charm
Flowers
Jewelry Packs

ATB - Artist Trading Block

 
 

Apply a couple of coats of the Butter Creamy Dixie Belle Chalk Paint From DIY Design Studio on the ATB - Artist Trading Block

 
Set aside to dry.


 
Once dry, rub Metallic Rub-on Cream on the ATB - Artist Trading Block to distress it.

 

 
Distress the Flowers with the Metallic Rub-on Cream on the front and back as pictured.


 
Work the flower petal folding and bending them to give them more dimension as pictured above.  The first two flowers have had the Metallic Rub-on Cream applied and the petals folded.

 
Now to finish embellishing. 
 
Look for the finish project next week.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
