Today I’m up on Lindy’s Gang blog with a Christmas home decor. I worked on a wooden star that a purchased in a dollar store.
First I primed the wooden star with white gesso.
When it was dry, I added a non-even layer of white crackle paste as I want to obtain a distressed look: the thinner the layer is, the finer the crackles are, the thicker the layer is the larger the crackles are. I let it dry on its own.
While the paste was drying, I primed some flowers as well as some paper clay embellishments with white gesso.
When happy with the result, I glued everything with a heavy body gel.
I colored the paper clay embellishments and the leaves with Cathedral Pines Green and Tainted wit Love Teal. For the flowers, I used Hag’s Wart Orange.
I dried everything before adding different sizes of Art Stones with 3D Matte Gel.
I added more colors especially the flowers with Tears my Pillow Tangerine and Grab a Guy Gold.
Next, I embossed a few diamond pebbles with Fiesta Pumpkin EP. As the embossing powder is clear, I embossed each pebble twice.
After gluing the pebbles in place, I dry brush everything with white gesso to add more depth to the project.
- Spray inks – Tainted with Love Teal, Hag’s Wart Orange;
- Flat Fabio – Tears on my Pillow Tangerine;
