First time up on the Muse Blog!

Hello Everyone!

 Today is my first time up on the Relics & Artifacts Blog! I hope you will hop over and see all the details of my first MUSE Team project. For my first project I played with Sandra's Santo Domingo Sacred Heart Set  and Her VerDay Metal Paint Set and some other bits and pieces. 

I am calling this canvas "Out of the Darkness"  I chose Sandra's beautiful Santo Domingo Sacred Heart Set I was inspired to create this canvas after I saw Sandra's original that she found in France. She shared a picture of it over in the Relics & Artifacts Tribe and I was officially in love with this beautiful heart. I wanted the Heart to truly shine so I decide to keep the rest of the canvas dark.

Relics & Artifacts Used:

Other Products Used: Prima Art Basics- Black Gesso,Heavy White Gesso and Heavy Body Gel. Finnabair- Sculpt Gel, Sparks Paint and Wax. Miscellaneous Ribbon and Lace. The back side of an old canvas. Ranger Alcohol Ink. Ranger Pearl Alcohol Ink. Deco Art Clear Crackle Glaze.

Don't Quit, Do It!

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to stop by and share an altered ceramic dress form that I found at the Salvation Army awhile back. 

The minute I picked it up  I knew that I wanted to so something focusing on Breast Cancer awareness. This topic has hit home for me too many times this last year.  As I am sure it has for so many of you. So with that in mind,  I wanted to share my love and support to all those dear to my heart and those that I don't know that have been touched by Breast Cancer.

Products Used: Prima/Finnabair Art Basics- 3d Matte Gel, Heavy Body Gel, Soft Gloss Gel, Heavy White Gesso. Prima/Finnabair  Art Alchemy- Sparks Butterfly Spells, Steampunk Copper, Rose Gold Wax, Boudoir Pink Impasto.  Prima/Finnabair- Micro Beads & Glass Beads. Prima Apricot Honey Pattern Paper & Chipboard. Prima Flowers- #65530 & 642846. Finnabair Molds- Stars & Moons, Cogs, Wings. Finnabair- Flutter Tissue Paper. Blue Fern Studio- Mauve Seedlings, Rose Gold Glitter. Lindy's Stamp Gang- Cotton Candy Pink, Bodacious Blush, Steampunk Sepia, Sandra Dee Sepia. Misc. Ribbon & Twine. Found Item Ceramic Dress Form.

I didn't create a video of this project because I knew I would never stay in focus.. but you here you can see how it started and started to come together. 

I started by sanding the dress form a bit and then applying a coat of  Heavy White Gesso. Next I added a base layer of Pink Boudoir. Then I wrapped it all up with tissue paper and gloss gel.

Then came everything else here are a few close ups..

 Lots of flowers and glitter....

Tiny Paper Tags, Ribbons and Beads...

Stars and Gears....

Don't Quit!

 Don't give up and Always get checked!
