Today I would like to share a little project I made using Lesley Wharton’s free background papers for the Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge.
To make this project:
The CD Base.
Drill two holes, for hanging purposes, in an old CD.
Sand done side of the CD using sand paper.
Attach the backing paper to the sanded down side of CD using PVA glue and trimmed it to size.
Paint some circles using purple craft paint and leave to dry.
Mask off half of each circle and stamp the script.
Use a stencil and relief pasted to make the small circle patterns and leave to dry.
Gently sand the relief paste circles to take off any ruff edges.
Paint the paste circles with yellow/gold paint.
Sand the painted paste circles lightly and add Walnut Distress Ink using a sponge.
Optional – Apply to coats of spray fixative to the surface of the decorated CD.
Stamp the owl 4 times onto card stock.
Cut out parts of each stamped owl image that you wish to use for decoupage purposes and color them.
Optional – Coat each cut out colored piece of the owl with Mod Podge or Similar.
Use foam tabs or Silicon, construct your Owl using the cut out pieces.
Attach the owl, using Silicon or PVA glue to the decorated CD.
Attach the chain for hanging purposes and any embellishments.
