I started by tinting the paste and arranging my bits and bobs.
I love my little cat, I made it in a mould with Plaster of Paris and it reminds me of my sadly no longer with us Princess. Most of the other stuff is jewelry bought in the sales and broken up.
Next a few coats of Bora Bora was painted on. I'd added the grungboard 2014 by this stage. Boy does that stuff hold water!
Added some Beach Hut, South Pacific, and Toffee and a fair few wet wipes.
Next came the Treasure Gold in silver, copper and sapphire. I'm still a bit heavy handed with this but I'm getting better. I was using the wrong brush (a stiff one) but now I've changed to soft and that's loads better :-)
This is my favourite bit - it's the best one of the colour too. We havn't had sunshine for days here but we're lucky in that we havn't had floods either.
This was great fun to do and a lot easier than I thought. The paint dried really quickly and I love the TG over the top. It picked up the texture in the Grunge Paste too. It's amazing how just using the proper soft brush can make such a difference.
I have to go and take down Christmas now - I hate taking it down, but it's only 353 days till next Christmas - ok shoot me now, I deserve it lol.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend, and thanks very much for looking x
