Well, it's finally here!
CHA has officially begun, and so here come the samples from the depths of our very souls!
This was one of the most fun of all.
The Designers Challenge from Ranger using
Stickles, Ice Stickles, Liquid Pearls, or Accents (Glossy and Crackle).
And it was so much fun. I LOVED how this turned out. I hope you do, too!
We were given a 13" paper mache mannequin for a base, and a ton of products to play with.
I knew when I saw the gorgeous new colors, that the Blues would be my 1st choices.
I also used Perfect Pearls to paint several pieces so that everything sparkled.
The headpiece is a pin I found at JoAnn's.
I made a dress out of muslin 1st to be able to fit it to the dress form before cutting out the blue material.
This material is from a project I did a few years back for a Cloth Paper Scissors accordion book.
It is so beautiful with the gold metallic studs and mica chips on the wonderful watercolor-looking silky material. So glad I saved a piece.
The leaves are hand-cut from Grungepaper and have Stickles outlined with Liquid Pearls.
Getting the neckline was the hardest. The material is slippery.
The Grungeboard Butterflies are painted with Perfect Pearls and Stickles as well.
Wonder Tape secured it all perfectly!!!!
The Ice Stickles don't show up well in the picture, but they are all over the tulle skirt and the headpiece.
It really does SPARKLE!
I added a wooden base that painted with Perfect Pearls first and then coated with Ice Stickles.
The Stickles and Liquid Pearls really were fun to draw designs around the base for added glitz!
Thanks to Ranger for this great opportunity to "play with products". It was a BLAST!
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you an Idea-ology Project for Tim's booth...can you say Pulley Wheels, Clock Keys and Faucet Knobs??????
