Today I’m up on Lindy’s Gang blog with a new video tutorial. I chose a photo from the movie “Edward Scissorhands”. I must admit I have never watched this movie, but I find this photo very inspiring for a Spring project.
I think it happens to all of us to make a project that we didn’t like. I have this panel with a background I really didn’t like, so instead of throwing it away, I just covered it with white gesso, et voilà! my panel was ready for another project.
- Take your old background and cover it with one or two coats of white gesso;
- Color the background with your favorite colors if your photo is black & white; I choose to work with Pirate’s Plunder Gold, Fairy Garden Green, and My Mojito Green;
- Use a baby wipe to blend the colors together;
- Emboss a frame with Chip Off the Old Black EP. While the embossing powder was still hot, sprinkle some Gimme Five Gold EP.
- Prime some resin leaves with clear gesso;
- Color them with My Mojito Green and Sparkling Sunset Magicals;
- Everything is ready to be assembled. Glue all the elements with 3D gel;
- Add a few flowers to your composition;
- To finish, add some glitters.
As you can see, this panel was really easy to make and I was able to salvage my messed-up background.
Here is the recorded video:
