Becoming a DT member was a great surprise, then it hit me.....when Amber told us the first month's project......oh boy, I'm in for one heck of a ride!! Yes, I did have to look it up, yes I did have to think about how I was going to make something "ombre." Yes I did ask myself...."what the heck is OMBRE!" But after much research and a little work, I do like the end result! I had never owned, let alone sprayed any glimmer mist! I started with a light colored piece of Bazzill. Started with the lightest color at the top (tuscan sun), then the next darkest (brick), then the dark (tattered leather). Be sure to lay down some newspaper or some other kind of drop cloth because you WILL get it everywhere!
After I achieved the look I wanted with the background paper, I needed to add everything else. when looking for letters I found the red felt letters, but they were the wrong red......so......I sprayed them! I needed them to be a darker, more brick colored to match the paper. I love how they turned out! The bling swirls are papiere reverie sienne, the pizza slice was purchased YEARS ago! It's made by Deluxe Die Cuts. I chalked the whole thing, used buttons in place of a couple pepperoni's, but it still needed something......a pizza cutter! I paper pieced it from a pic I saw on line.....used glossy accents on the blade to make it shiny. So, don't be afraid to do something you have never done before! It's all good!
started with Bazzill 2.0 from CC. Sprayed Glimmer Mist Tuscan Sun at the top, then Brick, then Tattered Leather at the bottom to achieve:
this....completed next to original.
then i just added the page embellishments.
the bling is CC Papiere Reverie Sienne which came also in a HC from CC.
these are the red felt letters from a CC HC that i sprayed with GM, they are now darker red and sparkly!
