love...a new DT announcement! 44

Mona Pendleton | Friday, February 13, 2015 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Happy Valentine's Day to all who celebrate! I am honored and thrilled to share that I've been invited to join the wildly talented and creative ColourArte DT!!! Please be sure to visit the ColourArte blog for complete details and to see the list of talented ladies. In case you are not familiar with the fantastic line up of ColourArte products, please be sure to visit the ColourArte on-line Store.
In celebration of Valentine's Day, I altered a paper mache heart shaped box for my dear husband Scott then filled it with a couple of his favorite sweet treats :) 
After collaging the container with tissue wrap paper, I added lots of texture using a gel medium along with a stencil and a variety of metal trinkets:
Once dry, I randomly applied the following beautiful ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes: SLK-129 Black Ice, SLK-140 Bolivian Blue, SLK-143 Boysenberry, SLK-109 Honey Amber and SLK-104 Emperor's Gold. I used a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker for the sentiment.
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Waffle Flower Challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit ColourArte blog for complete details and to see the list of talented ladies on the DT.
Be Sweet ;)
