Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes. If you have old unused brushes this project is a good recycling idea for them. If you don’t have old dry brushes then remember not to throw away the brushes when you can’t use them anymore.     Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes I’m terrible when it comes to cleaning my brushes. I always forget to clean them and I leave them with all the paint or glue on. his results in many ruined brushes I can’t use anymore. BUT I almost never throw things away, including my brushes because there is always something to do with them… This time I took all my old brushes and glued them together to create a surface to work on. I covered the brushes with rust paste to add to their degraded look. Then I added all kinds of metal embellishments and embellishments I created from …

Shabby Chic Notebook Cover. Scrap & Craft DT

Hi dear crafty friends! I’m so excited to announce I was asked to join the Scrap & Craft design team. This is an amazing store with a wide selection of papers, chipboards and other craft supplies. I recommend you check it out! Today I’m sharing my first project Shabby Chic Notebook Cover. Scrap & Craft DT     Shabby Chic Notebook Cover. Scrap & Craft DT I think a notebook cover is meant to be embellished right? There are some pretty covers out there but if you want an inexpensive notebook then its cover will probably be boring. So the best thing to do is add some fun things to the cover.  I first painted the cover with gesso. This served a double purpose: changing the color of the cover which was purple and create a base for easy gluing and other mediums. Next I attached a piece of paper to cover the entire front. I went with a shabby chic …

Altered Mixed Media Tin Box

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my new Altered Mixed Media Tin Box. The Altered Mixed Media Tin Box was inspired by Lindy’s Stamp Gang August challenge.     Altered Mixed Media Tin Box       I surprisingly used most of the colors of this challenge. I say surprisingly because I usually not a very big fan of pinks and purples but somehow I found myself really enjoying creating this project. I can honestly say I discovered these colors and I’ll definitely be using them in future projects.       Altering a tin box is kind of tricky. I couldn’t simply cover it with gesso or paint it because it will not hold on the metal. First I needed to cover the entire box with gel medium and only after it was dry I covered it with a layer of gesso. Then I added texture with stencils and modeling paste and some little stones. I sprayed …
