Hi there! Today I have something different from what I normally do but I did enjoy making it up! Its a kit from the Tando Creative Ministry of Mixology Retreats. These retreats take place a couple of times a year and they are a LOT of fun :-D
Anyway, I chose to work with Andy Skinners Frame which is quite a chunky beast! People use all sorts of wonderful painty, grungy techniques on these kits but I have chosen to do something different. I am using paper!!!!...and its PINK!!!! Not normally Andy's thing at all!
I glued all the MDF parts together before painting them lightly in mauve acrylic over black gesso.. The sections of chipboard have been covered in some paper that I had had for ages, just waiting for a project like this :-D. These tiles were then grunged up a bit around the edges.
Before I attached the 'lid' I added the stamped and coloured skull and 'neck'...
I would love to tell you whose stamp this is but I can't remember and there was no label, sorry. I just add to add some very pink feathers for the poor souls hair!
I couldn't resist adding some black lace and some black paper flowers to finish this off and make it a bit more girly. The letters are old metal ones that I coloured black with a Sharpie pen.
Thank you for popping by my lovelies, take care xxx
