Things to Alter~ New Challenge Anything Goes, Twist add a Bird!

Hello wonderful crafty people!

Welcome to April! I don't have any gags planned, how about you?

Just some painty fun and a new challenge at Things to Alter to bring you today!

Here we go, I made a 5x7 canvas for this project and loaded it up with Jac's MDF shapes, DecoArt Media and Tattered Angels colors.

"Use Your Wings"
5 inch by 7 inch canvas board
Things to Alter MDF used:
Spooky Tree
Diamond Trellis Fence

I used DecoArt Gesso, Crackle Paste, Crackle Glaze and Matte Medium 
in various layers along with masking tape and drywall tapes for texture. 
I used an Andy Skinner stencil also for more dimension with Deco Art modeling paste.

For color I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists Brights Starter kit. I love the blue Dragonfly and green Moss, the colors are very vibrant! On top of the mists, I applied a layer of DecoArt Matte Medium to seal the color once the color sprays were dry. The colors move some when the medium was applied with a brush but here it worked just fine.

On top I used some DecoArt Crackle Glaze for even more texture. I sprayed some more Tattered Angels, both Dragonfly and Moss and used a bit of water to get the color into the cracks. I also used some Glimmer Glaze Island Spring in some of the blue areas.

I used Glimmer Glaze Paint, Satchel, on the bird for a stained look. Then once dry I added some White Picket Fence Distress Paint and wiped some away.

Thanks so much for looking!
