Hello and Happy Friday!
As many of you may know, I stepped down from many of my Design Team's at the end of 2014. With my recent move to PA and a new job, I wanted to take a break from my DT commitments and focus of personal and other creative projects.
With more free time available, I can create more of some of my favorite project types - Assemblage and Off The Page! The project I am sharing with you today was created during a holiday break, and uses some of my favorite products and techniques.
The base of my Molded Bust Shrine is a Paper Whimsy Amazing Alterable. I LOVE using Paper Whimsy alterables and you will see more of these projects in the future.
I created the initial texture on my shine, by heat embossing a stamped image to each piece. (I used this VLVS stamp). I then applied several layers (and colors) of Shimmerz Inklingz. (If you have never tried Shimmerz Inklingz, you must! They are amazing watercolors, with intense shimmer)
I treated each Shine piece to the same paint technique, the glued the entire shine together.
Now time to create the embellishments.
I molded several Broken Charlotte dolls, using Amazing Crafting Products.
Using bits & pieces from my vintage assemblage stash, I created 'bust stands' from door knobs. I also added some metal pieces, colored with Alcohol Inks.
In order to keep a coordinated color palette, I covered the metal pieces with gesso, then painted them with the same Shimmerz Inklingz paints.
I am really loving the intricate detail and whimsical look. I could create these projects all day long. :)
I hope you enjoyed my Molded Bust Shine. Thanks for stopping by and Have a great weekend!
