Here's some photos of some of the projects I've been working on. The altered items all start out the same - I find something to paint and then embellish beyond recognition! That's pretty much it!
I use Gesso as a base over the entire item, then paint it in a chalk base paint that I bought at the Vintage Market and Design shop while on a trip home to Albuquerque this summer. (Most fun store ever!) It gives everything a wonderful soft, vintage look and feel. I love love love this stuff!!
|The "tail feathers" separate from the body so it was easy to paint and embellish.|

Next is this butterfly that is made from an old "Home Interiors" brass butterfly that I found at a yard sale for $1 (bought two of them). Same process, just covered in paint and added bling!
So easy and fun! Use up all those doo-dads and remnants you have stashed away!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
