Altered Mini Mister Holder ::or:: The Day I Fell in Love with Glossy Accents
Mini Mister Organizer that a kind friend gifted me with. Super useful, but not at all pretty! I had been using this:
Vintage Photo Distress ink and attached them to the bottom, as feet. I wish I'd had the new Ranger Distress Stain - it would have been so much easier!
Life's Possibilities clear stamp set. I wanted it to stand out more so I highlighted the letters with Glossy Accents. The umbrella man - from the same stamp set - was stamped on Grungeboard, cut out, and attached using Glossy Accents. Various idea-ology pieces were also added using Glossy Accents. Sense a theme yet?
Grungeboard and have been inked with various distress inks and adhered with - you guessed it - Glossy Accents. The idea-ology pieces were also attached with Glossy Accents.
Tattered Florals die. I also added a Grungeboard flourish that I used my Faux Tarnished Metal technique on. I love the effect on Grungeboard! A vintage Bingo piece and an idea-ology gear were added to the center of the flower using Glossy Accents. Indeed, EVERYTHING on this entire piece was attached, adhered, and just plain glued using GA. I actually tried another type of glue and it didn't hold. So, I tried the GA and it held like cement!
After the individual pieces were finished, I glued the whole thing together (GA) as shown. A gorgeous idea-ology Ornate Plate holding an Adage Ticket completes the piece.
Ok, so....am I crazy....or inspired? You be the judge. All I can say is this looks pretty cool sitting on my table!
