My Mixed Media Mannequin....

Morning! :)
I absolutely loved making this mannequin, and was really pleased with it! So much so, I had real troubles forcing myself to pack it up and send it off to IndigoBlu HQ! Lol
I have used some newly released IndigoBlu stamps on here, as well as some trusty old favourite products too.

The back of her wings - 
...and Kroma Crackle

The front of her wings - 

The mannequin -
coated with
Black Gee Sso Good Gesso
I have stamped with Flitterglu onto tissue, using the 
IndigoBlu Laurel Leaf Stamp...then gilded, 
and added it to the mannequin using Slap It On. Left it to dry and then 
splattered the mannequin with coordinating paint colours. 

I have stamped and gilded onto some Organza, 
and then attached it to the mannequin, draped to make a dress.
Made a fabric 'waist cape' - stamped it with Laurel leaf stamps 
using English Cottage Paint and Mega Flake.

I gilded the stick part of the stand, using 
a brand new background stamp - 

Added a few metal embellishments (which were gilded first)
and there it is! 

There are lots of new things being released soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more
news on the website, DT blogs and Facebook pages!

Where There's Light, There's Hope...

Hello! :)

Thought I'd share with you today, 
the lantern that I altered as a gift to a special friend of ours. 
 I forgot to take a 'just bought' picture...but it was plain...soooooo....

I gesso'd it...

added lots of DecoArt products:

Texture paste...
Crackle paste...

Media Fluid Paint...

Wethered Wood and 
more paint...

Sanded a bit here...

painted a bit there...

Added a laminated sentiment...

Or two...

Ta daa......

There we have it!

I so enjoyed altering this, mainly because of the sentiment behind the project... but I just loved watching the transformation as I went along.
 Look! I also have a matching drainpipe!! lol I'm not taking any credit for that though...that one's down to Mother Nature ;) x
