Happy New Year!
My first project for the new year.
Altered Pages is partnering with DecoArts this month!!
I wanted to share with you their Metallic Luster products.
I'm starting a prayer journal for 2015.
While thinking about wanting to draw closer to God, I was thinking about how I want my heart to be like his heart. I want to love others, have compassion, grow closer to Him.
I made a 4 layer heart with cardboard. Each layer fourth an inch smaller so they would stack.
Glued them together. Applied texture paste around the edges and on top.
I used a Glitz texture roller on top to create some dimension. Allow to dry overnight.
Painted the whole thing brown.
Painted a coat of DecoArt White Antiquing cream.
Once dry, you take a damp rag and wipe off as much as you want-leaving
behind the white in the crevices.
Now time for the fun & transformation!!
using a soft rag (I have cut up tshirts) you rub on the wax.
I started with some red, then brown & topped it with some gold.
Using DecoArts lacy doily and some gesso, I did some stenciling around the page.
If you'd like to see a video tutorial on this -check it out at Altered Pages Blog.
The Altered Pages store sells lots of the products I've used today.
The store for DecoArt products is-HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your 2015 is a happy and healthy one!!
