Unusual page, recycled material.

Hello, my dear friends!

My DT project this week is a very unusual, round layout!
How I like to experience, renew and recycle things! :)) Yes!!! and do you know what I have used as a base for this page?
Sooner or later every thing reach the end of it useful life. I'm not Frankenstein (the opposite, pretty and nice lol), but the other day I did revive a "dead" and forgotten object that had pulled in a drawer in the kitchen. It was a mold to make cakes, old and almost rusty because it has not used for a long time. So, instead of throwing it in the trash (which would make any other woman seeing a white elephant in the kitchen lol), I rescued it and transformed it completely.

The first thing I did, was cover the surface with Black Gesso.

Then I used some Stencils with Finnabair Art Basics: Modeling Paste. When it comes to the colour, I resorted to sprays of Prima Color Bloom Sprays.

The next step was to add a few strips of different fabrics and laces, to achieve more texture and enrich the background.
I created a composition by mounting a few layers of paper, flowers, different embellishments, Finnabair Vintage Mechanicals: 961121 Plate & Label, dies cut and tags. To give a few finishing touches, I added Finnabair Art Ingredients Glass Glitter - Gold Rush

And the result is a different and very special layout :))  You can find all the materials in the store  A Sprinkle Of Imagination.
I hope you liked the idea and it has inspired you to try to do something different:))
 See you soon! Much kisses!
