Tuesday Tagger - Jester or Masquerade Ball
Its Tuesday again and a new challenge atTuesday Taggers. Avril has chosen this theme of Jester/Masquerade Ball. Well if you know me at all you will know were my mind went instantly.
Papermache blank in a shape that is reminiscent of a Jesters hat, Venetian Masquerade Balls are famous for the masks the party goers wore. White gesso base and then buff acrylic paint and almost dry brush copper shading and contrast. Music themed paper from a book of papers decouparged on with modge podge. Outlines followed with gold red blue green braid, altered glue and rainbow glaze Tiger Lily and Golden Terracotta GMs gave him a very handsome tan. Self adhesive gems and a quick blast with Silver spray and sparkle for added shimmer and shine.
If you think it took skill or was hard to make this think again, these blanks are really easy and fun to decorate. The altered glue is something i usually have laying around it takes about a week for that to dry so i keep some handy. As for the rest the longest and hardest part was drying time and waiting for it to dry. it really is just a case of painting and glueing don't start with a vision just a vague idea and go with the flow. Give it a go, its fun!
Do hope you will pop over to see the fab makes from the DT and join in with us this week.
