hey all my lovely peeps.hope you're all well and getting some sunshine
its time for a new challenge at
and everyone's fav theme
iv gone a little dark with this make,
(but not as dark as another piece im working on lol ) :)
but that's another days blog ....
today's make is a desk tidy
i started off with an empty gravy granules container, a loo roll inner,
and a roast potato seasoning pot.
then taking some packaging cardboard (my daughter loves Amazon :/
i cut 2 circles and glued them together for stability.
each part was then painted in black jesso before being sponged
with a mix of black white and grey acrylic paint.
once they where all dry i painted a coat of Cosmic shimmer
matt Glue,Seal & Glaze, as i was going for a stone effect the matt glaze was perfect.
i then glued each piece to the base
next i took some thine wire and made barb wire and wrapped around the containers.
i took some flowers and added leaves and stuck them on as if they where growing on the wire.
the skulls came from an old Halloween decoration, i simply piled therm up, adding another rose.
the little fence is a silhouette cut which is painted black and then brushes with Creative expressions
Metallic gilding Wax in Patina
then to complete the graveyard look i took apart a washing up sponge taking the green scrubby bit and pulling it apart and sticking in random places to resemble moss.
