Altered Brush with Lindy’s Sprays & Embossing Powders with Olga Ravenskaya

Hi gorgeous Lindy’s friends!

It’s Olga Ravenskaya here with my new project and video tutorial.

While it’s dull and cold outside I’ve created a bright art brush while dreaming of warm and sunny days. I’ve picked teal and yellow colors for this and as a great complementary color to any color combo – grey.

Basic Process:

  1. Prime the brush and all the chipboard elements with white gesso.
  2. Apply the texture paste on the brush here and there to create a textured surface.
  3. After fully drying apply the first layer of colors with sprays, using a brush for more control. I’ve used Gag Me With a Spoon Grey, Black Orchid Silver for the top and Tainted Love Teal for the lower part.
  4. Let it dry and add the second layer to intensify colors using the same sprays.
  5. While it’s wet sprinkle over a small amount of decoupage silver metallic powder to add some metal look.
  6. When fully dry, apply white crackle paste here and there on the surface of the brush. Later – color those parts with sprays using a thin brush.
  7. Then stamp the surface to add more interest with black water-resistant ink.
  8. Color the die cut flowers with  Bonjour Butter, Bling-y Blonde, Sassy Sapphire Sprays and die cut leaves – with Black Orchid Silver and Tainted Love Teal just spraying them from the bottles.
  9. Dry well and emboss them partially using Luminous Lemon, Desert Moon Turquoise, Midnight Teal and Guten Tag Teal EPs.
  10. Color the chipboard elements with Gag Me With a Spoon Grey, Black Orchid Silver and Tainted Love Teal sprays mixing them with each other.
  11. Build up the composition on the brush and glue on all the embellishments.
  12. As the flowers look a bit dull – tint them and give them the shimmer with Gag Me With a Spoon Grey, Black Orchid Silver, Bling-y Blonde and Tainted Love sprays.
  13. Add some splashes with the same sprays.
  14. And to finish, add some mini prills and sprinkle over with a teal dry glitter.
