Hello Bad Girls,
For my repurpose post this month I wanted to show you a great way to Go Green by reusing the packaging that my stencil came in.
For years Prima has added beautiful designs on their packaging, and as you can see this beauty is of no exception. As I pulled my stencil out I could already envision of what I wanted to create using the backer card before thinking about the stencil. I knew that I wanted to back it up with black cardstock to make it pop as I did here.
Next I had to think of what I would create using the stencil. In my craft stash I found this mini would frame that I picked up at my local craft retail store. I thought a cute doll would fit perfectly within the frame. Using watercolor paper and archival ink I stamped my doll and water colored her skin. For her clothing I knew I would incorporate the stencil. Using my BAG GIRL GESSO included in this month’s kit, I applied a generous amount over my stencil onto my cardstock for the dress, and used a heat tool to speed up the drying process after it was applied.
Once my gesso had completely dried I was ready for the next step. Using a sponge I rubbed the wax paste in Old Silver color all over the design. Although it looked beautiful, I felt like it still needed color, so I added my water color paint in a burnt amber with a fine brush to follow the swirls in the design.
Once I had all my pieces glued together I added a black spray of glittered stars and beads to frame. I then used pop dots to add dimension to design. Once it was all glue on I knew it still needed something to make it stand out, so I added more glitter on her dress and hair. I then went back to my kit and found these beautiful beads to make her a necklace for that finishing touch.
Hoped I was able to inspire you…….Always, Michelle Rossibell
