The Onion, Quirks & Mitza Pitza Challenge Project Reveal
Yikes, it looks like my family portrait in my Letter P is missing the smallest member of the Pratt Clan, but he is there, I assure you.
The large purple blooms are making it hard to see him...handmade large purple blooms using scrap paper, gesso, ink, glimmermist, perfect pearls and glitter!
I'm feeling lots of purple lately.
Could be my purple iris that are blooming...or the lilacs....
And how you ask did you make those little white ghosty blotches on that P? Bleach my friend on a Q-tip!
Fun times. Here is a before photo of my P looking all painterly and bleachy. Love my cookie sheet. So good for mess.
I decided to try bleach since the Onion (aka Sue) and Quirks (aka Lisa) Challenge #3 involves using bleach and some other medium.
I am hoping nobody asks me to count how many mediums I used since I started with black spray paint and ended up with modge podge spray and glitter. A few layers in between...who counts when you start adding!
See, you can see the edge of the boy there...peeking out behind the rolled rose.
My favorite part of the letter P is the little glass bead I glued on the hook. I felt CLEVER after I did that!
Anyhow, these challenges were designed to SPICE up the Crafting Life and I am feeling all kinds of happy inside. I'm scared to death on next week's challenge....but I have some ideas!
Have a GREAT Saturday my Friends!
