MMMC blog, our theme focuses on altering embellishments and the design team were blessed enough to receive some of the awesome new chipboard designed by Lynne Forsythe for UmWowStudio! I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed working/playing with these chippies. They are not flimsy and thin, they have some thickness, but not too much---just enough to stand up to all the mediums I used and to the abuse I put them through! UmWowStudio is also our awesome sponsor this month and is offering up an awesome $30 gift certificate + free shipping to 1 very lucky random participant of this month's MMMC#38-Altered Embellishments!
On to my project featuring the brand new Large Ivy by Lynne Forsythe!
See? I told you it stood up to some real abuse, lol! First I painted it all over with white gesso. After it dried, I went a bit nuts with Tattered Angels sprays and shimmer paints as well as some Teresa Collins metallic inks. I added microbeads and a wee dragonfly and put a bit of gold threading under the altered chippie. A few little bling gems and wooden sequins, Molly White Crochet Lace and an inspiring sentiment complete my mini burlap canvas.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've found some inspiration in my project and I hope to see yours linked up over at the MMMC blog soon! Happy crafting!
