Why I have black fingers!
Morning folks! Just a quick visit to share with you what has been keeping me busy the last few days.
I had a lovely custom order from a bride who had a classy colour scheme for her wedding of black, silver and grey. She asked me to make some little jewellery boxes for her bridesmaids and an altered frame for her Matron of Honour.
All the items are first painted with white acrylic paint, then once dry I applied a couple of layers of silver metallic paint and again once dry I applied a crackle glaze. Quite time consuming but a really pretty result.
I then proceeded to make 5 black grunge flowers, which resulted in very black fingers !!! Once dry they have been spritzed very generously with Glimmer mist! And finally a lovely acrylic bead for the centre.
To finish I have, as requested, made a little scroll tied with ribbon, containing a message to the recipient.
Thanks for bearing with me and all the photos!
Have a great day!
I am just running out the door for a lovely crochet lesson with a couple of friends!
Catch ya later,
