Sharing another grungey chic-y altered project. I altered an 8" paper mache letter M that I picked up from my local craft store. I painted it all with Antique White acrylic paint. Everything is distressed with my fingernail and with Black Soot Distress Ink and gesso. I used the Prima Romance Novel collection. My friend, Joanne, had kindly gifted me with an A4 size stack recently. I added layers of embellishments including Crackle Accents, cheesecloth, lace, pearls, Wild Orchid Craft paper roses (Trellis, Open, Rose Buds, Wild Roses, Cottage Roses), an earring from Forever 21, Studio G metal charms from Walmart, and tissue paper I bought from the Target Dollar Bin. I did the tearing apart of the papers and added lace below. That's a technique that tons of artists have used and I really like it. Really cool. I added some white lace that I distressed with Distress Ink. It's holding the bundle of rose buds. I cut out images and a sentiment piece from the collection. I cut the sentiment piece down because it was too big.
