Here’s my creation.
I started with a shoe money box from Lisa’s fab shop. I love these piggy banks as they come in a variety of designs and are so wonderful to paint. I did a base coat in blocks of purple, teal, and blue (my favourite colours) DecoArt paints. Then I used DecoArt’s Weathered Wood effect which just might be my new favourite technique. I don’t know, I’m fickle so next week it might be a different technique! lol Over the Weathered Wood I put a thin coat (where I remembered) of buttermilk. It’s such fun to watch the top dry (not at all like watching normal paint dry) because the cracks appear before your very eyes!
I coloured up this fab digi image from Ditzie using my copics and then a bit of frantage to make it all smexy. The sentiment, also from Ditzie, is all the validation I need for a new pair of shoes! lol I thought it went perfectly with the image and the shoe money box.
The flowers are a just a bunch I picked out of my stash…mostly from That Craft Place. Although the giant rose came from a fizzy bath set and was a hideous shade of pepto bismol pink. Once again, the fabulous Dylusions Sprays worked their magic and made everything the right shades for my project. I also used the sprays to colour the cheese cloth (originally white) that I got from Lisa. I tried to take Neil Walker’s advice and use a couple of different colours on the flowers to add interest. Did it work?
I used DecoArt’s Faux Finishing Medium to apply the cheese cloth to the show and it worked a treat. I was able to put wrinkles (for a lack of a better word) into the cloth to add texture for the flowers to cling to. I used the fab collal silicon glue to attach the flowers.
This picture shows the weathered wood effect. Thick paint = big cracks. Thin coat = little cracks.
Love, love this technique. I learned it in one of Mark Gould’s classes at That Craft Place aka my happy place!
Thanks for stopping by. If you leave me a little bit of love, I’ll put your name into the draw for this shoe money box as Prince Charming has declared I don’t need anymore shoes. Normally, I wouldn’t listen, but since the three shoe racks I have don’t hold all my shoes, I might just have to agree with him! Don’t tell him! lol
