Altered Pot by DT Member


Today I have a quick inspiration for the current Craftyscrappers challenge.
I have made this lovely pot using my mixed media skills and Craftyscrappers products.
Let me share a picture of it before sharing the procedure and material.



  • I took a simple pot and painted it with gesso all over.
  • Once the gesso dried,I sprayed the pot with bitter lemon shimmer spray from Craftyscrappers and let it dry again.
  • I have stamped some pots and succulents from Craftyscrappers stamp set
    “I am stuck on  you” with Black archival Ink.
  • I have painted these using ranger enamel accents to uplift the coloring,some places I have also colored with archival inks as they are waterproof inks.
  • Then I took some frosting powder and added  little bitter lemon shimmer spray to it and mixed it well.
  • On the top of the pot , I applied this colored frosting powder with the help of matt medium.Bottom I have added some inka gold effect.

Itty Bitty Canvas by DT Member 


I am here with the inspiration post for the ongoing challenge.
I have made this Itty Bitty canvas for this challenge.

  • I took a 4″x4″ canvas. Applied Gesso all over the canvas.
  • Sprayed the shimmer spray Sweet pumpkin and Grape juice and blended them.
  • Let it dry. Added two layers of mesh and tied a twine around the canvas.
  • Die-cut a doily and colored it with distress inks. Die-cut the Eiffel tower and layered it with Glitzy gold foil.
  • Mounted it over the doily. Embellished it with flowers and leaves.
  • Added microbeads at few places.
  • Foam mounted the sentiment. Dry brushed gold metallic color over the open spaces on the canvas.
  • Lastly sprinkled the entire canvas with Sparkling dust.
