The surface was not easy to work on, after struggling my partner came to the
rescue with a thingy that holds things lol.
It's quite hard to take a picture when it's lighted, without background lol.
Lots of close ups and different angle pics :-)
And now for the step by step which is pretty short as it doesn't use that much, it just takes longer going around and around and around, you get my gist lol ..............................
I will be using a Special Touch Stencil Disco and Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle
Texture Paste Lilac Blush and Vivid Violet.
I did think to myself, where do I start lol
Because I wanted individual circles I masked off the ones I didn't want with
some scotch tape.
Normally I like the sticky part at the back as it helps to keep the stencil
in place, but because the lamp shade is tissue I knew it would tear so
I brushed some talcum powder over the back to take away the stickiness.
I did bits at a time and let dry, until my partner gave me the thingy holdy thing!!!
I found it was easier to go over the metal bit and not go just in the middle, as
it seemed to take a lot more in the middle and took ages to dry as it was so
Next I used Distress Paint Brushed Pewter and Dusty Concord.
The splodge here is when I tried to use the paint with the dabber, it just wouldn't work
as they wasn't anything firm underneath (you couldn't even get your hand in there without
the risk of tearing it). So as you can see with the other circles it was better using a paint
Next I stamped words from Creative Expressions Art Sayings Stamp Set
with Archival Jet Black ink pad onto pieces of tissue.
I cut them up and used Ranger Glue N Seal (which has now changed to multi medium I think)
to stick them onto the lamp shade.
I did some at a angle as I didn't want them straight everywhere.
Next I took a black journal pen and scribbled circles around the paint.
Right that's it, quite short really for me lol. Hope you enjoyed my project and hope you have a fab Monday.
Happy Crafting :-)
