So here’s a quick little thing that I did once I found my artistic mojo with that last piece. LOL! It’s only 2″x3″ and can be hung on a wall or sit on an easel. I still haven’t decided yet if I want to put a magnet on the back of it so I can stick it on the fridge. We’ll see…..
Anyhow, I got a little masonite Shrine kit from Retro Art Cafe. The kit comes in pieces and you have to assemble it. So I only used 3 of the 7 components and painted each part with a different color of Lumiere paint. I love that paint because of the shimmer and how rich the colors look once they’re dry…..but I digress. The Sacred Heart is from Bombshell Stamps. I colored it in with Smooch paint and then added Stickles in different shades for glittery goodness!
The swirl and keyhole are from the Grungeboard Elements set. I painted the swirl with Lumiere paint and the keyhole with Distress Ink. I added Distress Rock Candy to the keyhole so that it would crackle and look aged. I think the key is from 7Gypsies. I added some Stickles to it so that it would be sparkly. :)
I’ve been doing that a lot lately – adding glitter to make every thing shiny and sparkly. I think the Crafty Chica said it best – Glitter makes everything better! I have to agree with her. LOL!
Ok, back to the art……. The flowers are from Prima and the ribbons are from my own stock. The dragonfly was a brad and I removed the little legs….poor little dragonfly, suffering all in the name of art! LOL! I also added some touches of alcohol inks to the metal so as to give it some depth and color. The little silver image is an actual milagro that I received as part of some of the goodies from the Crafty Chica Cruise. It was provided by my friend Annette’s shop CJ Angels. I added a little bit of alcohol ink to it to make it look a little aged. The final touch was applying some white gel ink to add some extra dimension.
