Debs here! With something a little different for me. I picked up a plain photo frame from The Artistic Stamper and decided to transform it! Let me know what you think I would love to hear your views on what you think.
Sorry the picture isn't great it was a bit wet outside today and the light inside wasn't great either!
Take one blank frame
Get a Jamboree bag from The Artistic Stamper and adhere bits and pieces around the frame, the jamboree bags are full of hidden treasure
Using My Melt pot i mixed up some UTEE and poured it onto a heat proof craft mat and using a cog from the Tick Tock stamp set inked up with versa mark I stamped into the melted UTEE
then made a smaller one
I used the cooled down UTEE as a mild and using paper clay made some solid cogs
I also cut out the middle of the large cog
Added the large cog over the top of the bits in the bottom left corner
Added the smaller one on top
I had also used another stamp in the UTEE which was Smile from the journaling words 4 which unfortunately you can't really see in this photo but its in the top right hand corner. Once all the elements were stuck down i covered everything in black gesso.
Then I mixed some blue and green mica powders with gel medium and then covered the whole thing using the coloured gel medium as a paint!
Once that had dried I then got out some sliver gilding wax and just rubbed on the raised surfaces just to give it all a highlight
Here it is all complete and standing upright with its stand attached. Now you can see the Smile. Everything used in this project is available in the shop and online.
Do let me know what you think either on here or on the Facebook page.
Take Care Debs
