Today's tag was created for Anything but Cute challenge #9, ring out the old, bring in the new. "Use something "new" perhaps a fabulous new craft item or something new that you have not used yet"
I used my glass beads that have been in my tickle trunk for eons, but never opened. Here is my creation.
lily plaque chipboard piece from my etsy store, i cut off the plaque part and just used lillies and chicken wire. I painted the chipboard top and inside with black acrylic paint dusted lightly around outside around chipboard. I also painted the raised harlequin pattern.
I also outlined the harlequin texture with pen.
Final touches were rub ons, brads, and epoxy dome with bird image underneath. I attached the bird image with glossy accents, you need to use a lot of glossy accents and let partially dry before you cut around. I usually don't leave it long enough I am way too impatient.
This one was a little more girly than my usual style, i have been enjoying playing with texture in my last few projects i think i want to try some them bigger next. Maybe a canvas. We will see.
Have fun on your next scrapping adventure.
Glenda this is gorgeous and so textured! Yummy! What a fantabulous use of your "new" beads. Really diggin the contrast between each side and how you have merged it in the middle. Those Chippies are awesome sauce and the white highlight on top is super! Gorgeous design and details! Genius idea to add the glossy accents to the lilies-looks like glass.ReplyDelete

Glenda, I've enjoyed seeing your new glass beads on this awesome tag! Love the use of the white pen to highlight some of the areas and using the glossy accents on the lilies is just genius!
