Get Creative Challenge March, 2019

This month at Get Creative Challenge the theme is Anything Goes BUT a card.

3 Great Sponsors


I chose an image from Pattie's Creations called "Morning Glory" and played around with some mixed media.  I saw this on the internet recently and thought I wouldgive it a go, an altered spectacles case.

I've have used Acrylic Chalk Paints, Embossing paste and stencil, Gesso, Glue, Kindy Glitz, Liquid Pearls, Metallic Gilding Polish, Mod Podge.  Adding Bling, a Butterfly, Shells, twirled wire, Gumnuts and a coin.

The gumnuts and coin have been coloured with the gold polish, the same polish has also been added to the wings of the butterfly.  Fancy gem braid added around the top of the case completed the project.

The image "Morning Glory" was printed once on typing paper and once on cardstock. The typing paper image was torn around the edges and coloured with acrylic chalk paints to match the paint on the case.  A green alcoholic pen was used on the stems, which removed the paint and left a green stem. (this was a happy light bulb moment) and layered onto the case with mod podge.

The cardstock print was coloured with copic pens and the flowers and leaves were fussy cut and added to the other image with 3d dimensions and glue.  Glitter then added.
