Flutter

Hi everyone Monica here today is my first project as a Guest Designer for Eclectic Paperie.  I am super excited to be here for the month of March.  For my 1st project I created an altered purse.  I used several different mixed media products to give it a eclectic look

This is what the purse looked liked after I covered it with 7 Dots Studio patterned papers...



I used some Gesso by Liquitex and rubbed it all over the papers using a paper towel to wipe off excess

 I sprayed it with glimmer mist by Tattered Angels and used a chicken wire piece from Crafters Workshop as decor on different spots
I sprayed a chipboard scroll piece by Fancy Pants and used it as the front latch for the purse and just inked and sprayed all over the purse and used my embossing gun to dry - I am a bit impatient

 I also used Dylusion stamp set and outlined certain parts with a white gel pen


Thanks for stopping by everyone and be sure to check back next Wednesday for project number 2!!

That is awesome. LOVE how you added gesso on the papers then wiped off excess. Alters the papers a bit yet the original still shows through. Gorgeous.
