Love completely - Altering a House shaped Frame

Hello crafty friends!
Anat Here with a new step by step tutorial. In this video I willl show how I altered a Wooden house shaped frame in  Shabby Style, using lots of shakers and some other Lindy's products.

So let's get started...

Basic Process

  • First Step: cut the House shape from a Resist Canvas - Lindy's matches gorgeously on it!
  • To color it I use water and 2 Lindy's shakers: Oom Pah pah Pink and California Poppy Gold
  • Cover the Frame with White Heavy Gesso
  • Dry it and add pieces of different Washi Tapes
  • Spread randomly, White Crackle paste
  • When dry I add to the cracked frame my favorite Lindy's Medieval Gold Glitz Spray
    tip: In case you are not familiar with the Glitz Sprays: These sprays contain just the shimmer! so they are perfect when you don't want to add color, only shimmer
  • I have picked some Dusty Attic's Chipboards and primed them with White Heavy Gesso
  • To color the chippies I used Lindy's Shakers, starting with: Alpine Ice Rose
    tip: To get Shabby-Pastel colors, I sprayed on top Lindy's Sidewalk Chalk Spray, instead of water. Next I used the Amazing Glittering Gold Shaker. On the Window I used Time Travel Teal  Shaker.
  • I decided to add some texture on the chipboards for that I'm using Lindy's embossing powders.
    tip: I’m using Versamark pen because I don't to cover all chipboard
    First I used Starbright Gold Green Lindy's EP, and next C'est la Vie Cerise Lindy's EP
  • Instead of using colored flowers I grabbed white paper flowers and dyed them with the same shakers I used previously: Oom Pah pah Pink, Glittering Gold, Guten Tag Teal
    Here again I spray Lindy's Sidewalk Chalk, to soften the colors
  • Another embellishment to be colored are the resin mould pieces. I mix a bit of White Heavy Gesso with Lindy's Loonie Toonie Teal Squirt
    tip: As the Squirts are thick but still liquid they are perfect for this purpose
    Dry and add on top a bit of the same Squirt, to get a two-tuned pieces
  • Now it is time to put everything together
I made a video tutorial so you can watch every step of the creation process:

Altered brush Duty Attic's moodboard

Hello crafty souls!
Anat here today with my Altered project inspired by the Bright & Joyful Moodboard for January challenge.

My altered Paint Brush was rather simple to create and the out come is fantastic due to the amazing chipboards I chosen to use.

I cover the Paint Brush with Finnabair Metalique Paint - Silver spoon, added dry brush of white gesso and finally added texture with Finnamair's Icing Paste - White Gold.
To the Bristles I added Blue, Yellow and White gold.

The Lacey TrimsOrnate Corner #6Geo-Tribal Motif #1 were painted with Finnabair's Metalique Pure Sunshine and rubbed with Finnabair's Blue Lagoon Wax.

The Fancy Accents #1 was painted with Finnabair's Metalique Light patina and the mini Art Stones added to it were rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax.

The metal pieces were painted with Metalique Deep waters paint and rubbed with Finnabair's White Gold.

Hope I inspired you to make one for yourself!
