If you have read my blog you will know i have not had a free weekend in a very long time. As this is my first free Sunday i thought this would be the perfect time to post my new adventure. SAME. so this Sunday we are going to be working with a couple of new products (one new to me and one brand new at APOS! ) Gesso and Glimmermist. Along with another one of my newest favorite product Ezee Pzee and some Ranger paint dabbers.
So here are the supplies i used:
|A wooden crate that i have held on to for a few years. it came with a couple of little jars of something or other in it. i just couldn't throw it away!|
|Ezee Pzee snowflake|
|and all these cool supplies.|
Gesso and then let it dry ( i may or may not have tried to speed it up with my heat tool!) I used a popsicle stick to spread it around. i suppose one could and prolly should use a paint brush but that would have meant i would have had to gone downstairs to find one and i just didn't want to. so stick it was. i spread out a somewhat even layer and then made peaks and such just buy gather and smooching the gesso around with the stick.
my next step was to take out some Tim Tissue Tape and cover the outside of the crate. once i completed that i sprayed the whole crate with Moonlight. i was so liking how this was turning out. i am a fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to 'creating'. i have discovered however that glimmermist takes a while to dry when applied to tissue tape so in the meantime i thought i would decorate that ezee pzee snowflake. so for the snow flake i took out my old and yet to be used paint dabbers and applied a coat of black willy nilly followed by my heat tool and then a coat of silver and it too followed by my heat tool. next i sprayed it with the final bottle of glimmermist in that wonderful kit, Glacier!! i was in love!
so then i got out my trusty pokey thingy tool and poked a hole into one of the tips of the snow flake and threaded a jump ring through the hole. added another one, put a staple into the top of the crate. i added a touch of the silver dabber all along the outside edges of the crate and folks, this is what i ended up with
