Relics and Artifacts :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

I have another Relics and Artifacts project step out to share with you :)

This is a layout I created for the Winter CHA 2016 release of Relics and Artifacts for Prima Marketing. It was originally blogged on the Relics and Artifacts Muse blog >>> HERE :) :) :)


At the time I created this I was really quite chuffed LOL but lets face it no one is going to replicate this type of layout so its a bit of a one off LOL :) :P But it was a lot of fun creating it :)



So here is the step out and Prima Product list:

941628 Archival cast figure heads
961503 Texture paste Crackle medium white
961473 Texture paste Sand medium white
961442 Heavy Gesso White
961459 Heavy Gesso Black
572061 Wire Thread Ink Black


Other: Imaginarium Designs 12 x 12 grey board, staples, Krylon Gold Foil Spray paint.
Begin by preparing the background grey board with a coat of heavy white gesso using a foam foller. Then adhere selected RELICS & ARTIFACTS® Figureheads to the background using strong clear drying glue.
Using a palette knife apply sand medium in random areas on background
Using palette knife apply crackle medium in areas where there is no sand medium.
Create a photo frame using wire thread, begin by forming multple loops and then bend into the shape of a heart, attach to back ground using a stapler
