Hi people, and welcome to my newest followers,
I have passed 100! woohoo hehe.
I think that will be calling for my first candy soon me thinks,
I would also like to celebrate my new
furniture page link
showing the before and after shots of projects that I am working on,and a bit of 'eye candy' too
More about all that later, moving on to this project...
I have made a keychain fob (?) and a decorated an old matchbox as a gift box for
who this time has a challenge where 'Anything goes' - as long as it is shabby/vintage style!
I sprayed the metal butterfly, the flowers and the tyll with matt white spraypaint.
The key fob was a thin plywood heart that I have painted a couple of layers with Gesso mixed with a few drops of Distress ink refiler to give a soft blue colour, then I painted a THICK layer of crackle paint on each side. A day or so later when the paint was completely dry I polished it with Fiddes furniture was in 'Rugger brown' colour, this gives a bit of shine, protection and aged colour especially in the distressed cracks.(and it smells pretty wicked too hehe)
I have distressed around the paper edges and 'wiped' the butterfly with sand paper. Inside the box is a rub-on text from aMelissa Frances collection.
Some more photos.....
