Prima’s design team call ends today, and I managed to make one more entry before the deadline. Though again, I don’t think I stand a chance, it has been a great motivator to get crafty.
I have several MDF boards of various shapes, and the 12-inch violin I had was the one that called to me the most. I used Prima/Finnabair Metallique paints in various blue and purple, plus a touch of Unicorn Hair Sparks paint for the base. When it was dry, I applied a coat of clear crackle paint on top and let that set overnight.
Next, I prepared my chipboards. I used my new favorite Wow! embossing powder called Perissa, which, when heat set, turns into mottled shades of goldish-copper and silver. It really is a beautiful effect. I also painted some elements with the Unicorn Hair Sparks paint.
I took white flowers from 49 and Market and colored them with Cobalt and Sugar Plum Color Bloom sprays from Prima and rubbed Vintage Gold and Brushed Iron waxes along the edges.
I glued down the chippies and made my own violin strings out of metallic silver thread. I also attached a lovely butterfly pendant and some of the new Prima Art Pebbles. My final touch was the chipboard “Timeless” from 49 and Market.
I’ve got a mixed media swap coming up next, but first, my next project will be cleaning my craft room. I can’t find my desk! Wish me luck!
