Create or alter something small in a shabby chic or vintage style. Your finished project can be anything from the size of an inchie, matchbook or domino to the size of a playing card or note card, which means anything from 1 inch to 4 inches and it does not have to be flat. Be creative and let us know in your post just how small your project is.
Small isn't something that I find easy to do so this really was a challenge for me !
I had some domino size Tando pieces which I thought if I'm doing small then these would fit the bill ! As you can see from the ruler they are only approximately 2cm wide by 4cm tall. I first of all covered the pieces with Prima beige Sculpture Medium then dipped them into the tiny Art Stones.
While the covers were drying I cut a piece of white card and folded it fit them and folded it in a concertina style. Then I dug out my Distress Inks, which haven't been used in a while, and blended ink over the card.
I used Prima Art Alchemy paints to paint the covers, blending the colours keeping the darker Blackberry to the edges.
I assembled some embellishments on the front cover and the Petaloo burlap flower was soaked in Prima Sculpture Medium and I wrapped some wire around it while it dried. Then I painted the flower with Art Alchemy paint.
After the Distress Ink treatment I did some stencilling and stamping.
I added some white dots using a Sharpie white pen.
The text you can just about see is done using one of those small alphabet sets:
'Live for today........Dream of better days'
The rest of the DT have made some amazing little projects so do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog.
