I thought I would add this little tutorial on how to make Altered Skeleton Leaves, this is the first time I've done one of these so hopefully it is understandable. If not please feel free to drop me an email. So as not to make this to long winded I have had to make the images smaller, however if you click on them you will get one that you can read better. I post again at a later date.
Once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded a project to the CCG Gallery using Challenge 200, please make sure you check in at the Blog Hop discussion in the Special Announcements Forum at CCG. We will choose our August Guest Designer from that thread. Individual DT members will be choosing winners for the prizes they are offering. Good luck, and we hope you'll enjoy our blog ho
For the chance to win the prize below please leave a comment about my altered Skeleton leaves. I've kept the prize relatively small that it maybe sent to any country. Thanks so much playing along.

Hi..thanks for visiting my blog and asking the question..I probably should have mentioned it.... I only use good quality spray paints.... here is the description that is written on the back...ReplyDelete
"For a finishing touch, begin with Premium Spray Paints! These paints give projects a realistic, highest quality finish that closely resembles actual plating, not paint. They are also acid-free/archival safe and nontoxic when dry.
Premium Spray Paints are great for indoor and outdoor use on metal, wood, plastic, paper, wicker, glass, plaster, ceramic, and pottery. They dry quickly (15 minutes) to a smooth, high gloss finish.
Your tutorial looks great!
Have a great day :)
I love this post!! Kisses from Italy, Gloria.ReplyDelete
