Altered piggy bank - Nomadic Soul Diaries June Challenge

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing with you my entry to the Nomadic Soul Diaries June Challenge. I know, I am a bit behind...  I altered a piggy bank. This piggy bank was one of the first gift my boyfriend gave me and I wanted to do something nice with it.    I started by covering it with white gesso and then I added crackle paste (Ranger) and Art Stones (Finnabair). Then I sprayed some Lindy's gang Starburst in Tibetan Poppy Teal. After it was dry, I added a coat of Finnabair wax in Blue Lagoon. I didn't... [Lire la suite]

Mixed Media dream catcher for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and Bleeding Art challenge

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing with you my entry to this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, "Stars", and this month Bleeding Art Challenge, "Anything goes". Last year, I shared with you this crescent moon dream catcher I made for my sister.  However I did not like it and I haven't given it to her. So I decided to start all over again. It's a shame because I really liked the idea of the crescent moon shaped dream catcher, but really, I was not satisfied at all with the end result.  Therefore I am... [Lire la suite]
