Hello crafters, its Ruchi here again!!
Hope you all had a great Diwali. Festivities are time to catch up with your friends and family and as Diwali ushers in New year, it is time to restart and renew your life and home. We all clean up our houses and bring in new stuff around this festival. Similarly, I too accumulated loads of stuff that were ready to be disposed off. But being a crafter throwing stuff always is a painful process and I invariably try ‘best out of waste’ projects from them. So today I am sharing with you another project which uses old discarded lamp shades as my base. Hope you like it.
ALTERED MIXED MEDIA LUMINARIES
2. Has extremely good luster which can be achieved with very little paint thus saving on paint .
3. Very smooth to work with and the thick consistency is perfect for mixed media application.
To begin with, I have used some burlap, tissue paper, lace and chipboard scraps which I have pasted on the shades to give texture.
Next step was to create some focal elements giving 3D look to the project. For this I used old CD’s, glass beads, resin embellishment, metal wing, keys, small beads, paper/foam flowers etc. You can use whatever comes to your mind. I have pasted all my elements with silicon glue and PVA glue from Itsy Bitsy and left the project to dry for 12 hours. Upon drying, I have given a thorough coat of Mont Marte black Gesso.
The finished project looks this way…
