Playing with paint

For the last couple of nights I've been playing with cardboard, gesso, black paint and metallic rub-ons. You know when you get in that mood to create something that might just WOW yourself - well this is it!!!  I think :O


I've just used a piece of cardboard, cut out an aperture (saving the remainder for the insert), covered it in tissue paper (making sure I had lots of wrinkles for some texture) and once dried coated it in black acrylic paint.  I then rubbed in some gold metallic rub-ons to create a metallic finish.  Added some gorgeous lace from my stash  (Running with Scissors), spritzed some cream roses with Glimmer Mist and Diamond Stickles, some pearls were added and I used my Tim Holtz  Flourish Die Cut and that's it!!

Well thats it for now as I'm preparing a cigar box (got you one too Sue :O)  ) for holding some vintage tags that I'm in the middle of - Have a good weekend
